The writers of this episode unknowingly made an accurate prediction about the future. Specifically the scene of the SWAT raid on Krusty's home. With the increased militarization of United States police departments SWAT raids are becoming more and more frequent even for the most frivilous of reasons. When I first saw this episode I laughed hysterically at that scene. Today I look at it and think how sad that scenario became all too common in the United States. Let me state for the record that Ido not thinkthat all police and all SWAT teams are inherently bad people. I have great respect for all people in law enforcement as we should all have. I am just saying that it is a sad sign of the times that we are seeing such things happen more than they should.moreless
