Wrong Door Raid: Cops Kill Dog, Search House Anyway

What do you do if you have a search warrant with the wrong address? Why kill the family pet, handcuff the kids next to the fluffy corpse and search the house anyway!

Even after learning that they were in the wrong house, the complaint states, the drug busters stayed in the Francos’ home and kept searching it.

But wait, there’s more! Why not double-down by by denying a diabetic child her medicine?

But its fine, after an hour search they turned up a .22 pistol.

  2. Is it just me or have we been hearing about more and more over zealous cops lately? Between the tasering and awful beatings you’d think crime was going up not down. I don’t get it.

  3. The classic example of this in the DC area from a few years ago is that the Prince Georges county police raided a guys house complete with the seemingly mandatory dog shooting only to find out he was the mayor of the town. It lead to a huge investigation to how much the cops are relying on no-knock warrants and paramilitary assaults. That tale always makes me wonder just how many times this happens to less well-connected people.

    It’s all part of the War on Drugs. As we all know, once you define something as a “War”, any and all tactics are justified.

    They should have just sent in the drones to kill all of them and they could have avoided this lawsuit.
