    Police Raid Wrong Home, Kick Man In Groin

    As reported by WRC TV NBC 4 (DC):

    Police Raid Wrong Home, Kick Man In Groin
    Annapolis Officers Used Flash Grenades

    UPDATED: 10:03 am EDT June 8, 2007

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Annapolis police raided the wrong apartment Wednesday night, using flash grenades and kicking a resident in the groin area before they realized their mistake.

    A police spokesman said something must have gone amiss in the briefing beforehand.



    Silvia Bernal, 30, told The (Annapolis) Capital that about 15 officers burst through the front door of her apartment while she was cooking dinner. She said the officers kicked her husband in the groin area while she fled into a bedroom.

    Police spokesman Hal Dalton says one resident barricaded the door with his body, but police were able to get in after a noise flash device was used.

    Dalton says as soon as officers realized that they were at the wrong apartment, they offered immediate medical assistance, even though they saw no injuries.

    Officers were supposed to have raided a different apartment on Primrose Avenue. Dalton says the incident is under review.

    Dalton says when a warrant was served at the correct address, no one was there and no contraband was found.

    NBC 4 reported that three people said they were roughed up by police.

    Spa Cove apartment manager Latisha Marshall said there is a large dent in the front door. And she said there are two large black stains from the flash-bang grenades police deployed.

    This isn't the first time this has happened and probably not the last. Datona pulled such a raid a few years back and had the wrong address. one of the tenants of the apartment ended up shooting one of the LEOs. It turned into a real tragedy.

    Here we go again. No knock. And innocents suffer. We should not be so cavalier to say that it happens without proper prep right before saying the are is full of ganstas. Apparently, it is NOT full of gangstas. At least there are 2 who are not. If they were in any way, shape or form, they would have done the perp walk regardless of the incompetencies of the LEO.

    They, the people who planned/directed the "raid" don't even deserve to be working fast food.

    I think no knocks are bad news. Dangerous for the officers and the people they presume to be criminals.

    The article doesn't say that it was a no-knock warrant. It just says that the police burst through the door. Doesn't mean they didn't knock first.

    Where in the linked article does it say this was a no-knock? It seems every time there is a warrant service that has problems, people are screaming "no-knock!" This may or may not have been one - nothing in the original post indicates one or the other...

    Just an admonition to wait for all the facts before condemning anyone. We all know how the media can get things wrong, how facts come to light well after the initial reports, etc... If a guy got his family jewels crunched via legitimate mistake, procedural error, or true negligence remains to be seen - if there was negligence than someone should (and probably will) pay the price... Let's not rush to judgement.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    But this is not a laughing matter. It's a matter of unforgivable incompetence, and a grave danger to the public.

    Answers are required, and heads should roll. And a bunch of cops should consider themselves lucky that they were not responsible for the deaths of innocent people.

    Where is there room for uncertainty? Has there not already been an admission that the warrant was served at the wrong location?

    That was either deliberate, or accidental. In either case, it is intolerable.

    I don't know what your point is. "Let's not rush to judgment"? It doesn't seem as though we're rushing to anything: the fact that the warrant was served at the wrong address is not in dispute. And if the article is to be believed, even when the warrant was served at the correct location, no contraband was found. So it begins to sound as though this was a double screwup.

    The LEO's are looking for someone/something. They can't get the proper info themselves. So they go to their favorite snitch. You know him. He is the multiple convicted felon,drug user,that the police count on for info. How do they get this POS to help supply info? They simply catch him doing something wrong that will be his "third strike" and threaten him with a gazillion years hard time.

    In return of the "favor" of keeping him outta jail,the police simply need a little info. Who,when,where. The POS doesn't want to go to jail so he gives them all the "info" that they will need to make a on camera,bust.

    The LEO/prosecuter feels this POS/convicted fellon/druggie is telling the truth and they execute the warrent on the house of Mr. and Mrs. Jones. Him in a wheelchair from enjuries that he sustained fighting for his country in Korea,and her with early stages of Alzheimers.

    Naaaaaw. Things like this don't really happen ..............do they ???????

    They had a 'tip?'...I'm not a cop, but aren't they supposed to watch the place for a while? What is the hurry for the 'bust in and look?'

    There is not excuse for having the wrong address, and someone needs to step up to the plate for responsibility...
