    I actually know someone who was the victim of one. A co-worker, living in a duplex in philly. Cops did the raid for suspected drug activity (of course) only they raided the upstairs where she and her family lived rather than the correct address, which was downstairs.

    These things happen everyday, yet we consider them acceptable collateral damage in a war we’ll never win. It’s pure insanity.

    This shit needs to stop, not now but RIGHT NOW.

    Sadly I don’t think it’ll stop until the Police kick down the wrong door and the lawful home owner shoots several of the intruders before they are killed.

    It will result in the death of MULTIPLE highly-trained Police officers, and at LEAST one more innocent life.

    I don’t see what else can get these Authoritarian jerks to back down on their SWAT abuse.
