SWAT is currently part of the United States police. I've always been sketchy on the facts of who they were affiliated with, but I didn't think they were part of the police force. I thought it started out as a party of vigalantes or something.
SWAT spikes my interest, I think it is really cool. I've never known anyone who's on SWAT though, or known anyone who knew anyone on SWAT for that matter. How come we never hear about them on the news? Is it a covert issue? I wonder how much these guys get payed and what exactly they do for training and such.
