Make It Hurt

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.

    Though I like the way you’re thinking, my cynicism tells me that the Sovereign’s solution to expensive lawsuits is not a lessening of cool toys but… moar taxes.

    On the bright side, these days I tend to find that my cynicism is hopelessly naive and optimistic. So I’ve got that going for me.

    That me LOL it did, and I do not LOL easily or often.

    Then I cringed.

    That could be the epitaph of our civilization.
