Something I have not seen discussed in any reporting except my own at WND.com is the fact that not a word was uttered by the SWAT team between the time the door was breached (at :34 in the video I have seen) and the time the officers started firing (at :41).
That's 6 full seconds of silence as the officers form up and huddle around the ballistic shield in the doorway trying to get their eyes adjusted to the dimmer light inside.
The officers identified themselves by yelling at the closed door, but did not attempt to identify themselves after the door was open.
I live in an almost identical floor-plan home in Phoenix. From the master bedroom in the back of the house, yelling at the closed front door is barely audible, and impossible to understand - and that's without a hysterical woman screaming in the next room and noise grenades going off in the back yard.
