Dear God! SWAT Team Honored For Raiding Wrong House, Shooting At Innocent Home Owner
Not long ago, I conducted a poll on this site about whether police officers should face murder charges in this exact scenario. Over 70% of you currently think they should.
I also did a podcast that addressed that police officers who illegally enter your home should be met with force.
Thank God no one was hurt. The home owner was just defending his family from armed, aggressive home invaders. This makes me wonder if the police identified themselves. My guess is the owner would not have fired if they had. There’s a music video becoming very popular right now about these ‘no knock’ raids.
The most relevant part of the video is when the Chief says the situation could have been much worse if it were not for the ‘professionalism’ of this team. Proper investigation and identification would have been the professionalism citizens would expect. Then this whole thing could have been avoided. I don’t think I’d call it professional to not identify yourself as law enforcement, and fire multiple rounds (while missing the target) professional. This time, at least, the lack of professionalism saved this family’s lives.
