Yeah, but it wasn't an illegal grow. That was the excuse, not the reason. It's hard to get a warrant for "terrorizing hippies," even in Texas.I do understand why a SWAT team was used on an illegal grow because any other way the people would escape or the evidence destroyed. Enter fast with enough people. I'm sure most would agree that you prepare for the worst and entering a situation and being out gunned is a bad thing.
You have to admit that the article is very biased. I wouldn't doubt that there was a warrant for an illegal grow and due to poor intel or poor police work it was unfounded.Yeah, but it wasn't an illegal grow. That was the excuse, not the reason.

She's a witch! My cow got sick, so she must be! Burn her, burn her!

WOOAAA! You've been to Myrtle Beach?!? Not being involved I can't confirm, but the rumor around town has long been that the police dispatch sends out group texts to warn a select group of dealers anytime something about them comes up. They cleaned out a BUNCH of cops recently over it, but from what is to be seen, nothings changed.Another problem is that they worry about some stupid shit and other things like drug dealing they let go on right in front of them.
