Kids get into SWAT teams? Now, if he were my SON--big difference--I would have to expect him to die, every day he went to work. (I probably wouldn't let him do it, if I had any say.) Just like driving a car--every time I get behind the wheel, I know it could very well be the death of me, because it's a major killer in the US.

If the SWAT guy isn't prepared to get shot, he probably needs to find other work. I don't think there's a draft for those positions. I mean, that sounds cruel, but it's necessarily true--they get sent into dangerous situations, because of the very danger of the situation.

(And, of course, I might point out that the 15-year-old actually IS someone's KID.)
