"Officers bust into a home in Sterling Heights, armed with a search warrant. The only problem? The guy they were looking for doesn’t live there. Fox 2 talked to the man who opened the door, and was stunned by what happened next."
Do not worry though because there will be no repercussions for raiding the wrong house, using false information, or not validating it prior to the raid. Often these types of incidents are easily solved and dealt with by minor surveillance or a knock on the door. Instead they use it as a projection of force to remind others who actually is superior. In this case law enforcement has so many protections that they have absolutely nothing to fear.
This is by no means the first incident I have heard like this. It is much easier for officers to just ride the fallout of a shooting during a raid, even on the incorrect house than actually do their job. This is yet another example of the reason why the “War on Nouns” needs to end.
This was a lucky incident in that no one was shot on either side. It doesn’t change the fact that it’s unnecessary or uncalled for, and nothing more than state sponsored violation of a law abiding citizens rights. The law exists to protect the innocent and some times that means the bad guy gets away. It’s not a flaw folks, it’s a feature that should not be toyed or taken for granted.
State Sponsored Criminal Count: 12
Because the government protects its own to the point where it’s easier to just kill you and deal with the paperwork than confirm the facts ahead of time.
