Last year I wrote about a scourge on our nation, the no-knock raid.
A few tactical operators, getting their tactical operations order, operated tactically and threw a flashbang into a crib with a 19 month old. Not present at the house? The suspect.
The cops reaction
Darby said all officers are upset about the incident…
The sheriff’s department called the incident a “terrible accident” but said the unit followed raid protocol…
Now, I said at the time they should rethink their protocol, but won’t.
Yeah, about that last part.
A federal judge has approved settlements totaling $3.6 million to the parents of a toddler who was severely injured when a flash grenade detonated in his playpen during a 2014 raid.
Make it expensive and they’ll get rid of their tacticool toys.
If they can’t state, on the search warrant, that the suspect is better off dead, they should not be allowed to no-knock.
