Just a Little Drug War Mix Up
February 2, 2012 |
Kill family pets…check.
Murder an Iraq war veteran…check.
Is there anything over-militarized police acting in the name of the war on drugs can’t do? Evidently, they can’t find the right apartment, and unfortunately for one woman, they found her’s by accident. Of course, they couldn’t just knock, they had to tear down an innocent woman’s door with a chainsaw:
Within moments, the chainsaw had cut through most of her door, and someone on the FBI’s arrest team kicked the rest of it in.
“That’s when I heard the clicking of a gun and I heard ‘FBI, get down!’, so I laid right on down.
And they said get your dog, so I got her and at the same time I am laying in her urine because she did pee on herself at the same time.”
[The woman] says the agents told her not to move, so, fearing she’d be shot if she did, she stayed put on the floor while her daughter screamed for her in the other room.
After reading countless stories where the police simply shoot the dog without warrant, I have to say I’m a little surprised to see this pup live. More importantly however, the woman is still alive. I can tell you that if someone were taking a chainsaw to my door without warning, I’d be shooting. But somehow this woman managed to appease the drug war thugs long enough for them to realize that they had the wrong place.
No big deal though, just another drug war mix up. Happens all the time.
