    92 years old... That's a lot of money for someone who was likely to die of natural causes soon anyway. I wonder what she did that made her seem a threat.

    Hey I understand how it could happen. I mean whenever I see a 92 year old woman the first thing I think of is "crack selling gang banger."

    - They could have multiplied that amount by 100 for all the good the money is going to do her... considering she's dead.

    Atlanta is hiring cops by the droves.

    So they have money to pay more than 4.0 million.

    No knock warrants are the result of judges who have no regard for the safety and rights of the citizens, and the war on drugs is the biggest rope a dope tax fleece in American history.

    Just curious, what value do you place on the last two weeks of your life. Will it be less if you get to be 92 vs what you think it's worth now?

    well stated...

    the money was awarded to her family and everyone involved i am certain realizes it isnt going to benefit the victim...as far as what made them think she was a threat i would guess that if you actually read the article the gun fire coming through the door was enough for that...the officers serving the warrant arent necessarily the ones who falsified information regarding the warrant or the coverup afterward....

    Heck, why read the article when you can just sling uninformed BS without ever gaining any understanding of the facts?
    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.

    Exactly why I will never willingly allow any LEO to enter my house or vehicle.
    The trust is gone.

    I will shoot in self-defense whoever kicks the door down! If it's a cop who mistaken my address for the intended address, that's too bad. You do not know nowadays if it's a cop that mistakes you for the wrong address or some home invaders pretending to be cops. Unless I have a summons or am a fugitive, there is no reason for a cop to do a "no knock warrant on my door". And even if it is a uniform or plainclothes cop knocking on my door for any reason, I will check for ID and confirm with the dept. that sent him/her to my home. If they don't allow that, I am not letting him/her in and would treat him/her in the same manner as a suspicious person. I am just sick and fed up of cops thinking they can just kick down doors and enter someone's home w/o any justification whatsoever and if they are in the wrong, they get what they deserve! Unfortunately, this is where the slogan "$#%^ the police" sometimes apply. I am sorry for being blunt but this is a very disturbing trend. That victim of a botched drug raid could just be me or you w/o any regard to race, social status, marital status, etc.

    This is not good for either side (Yes there are Sides for this type of attack) & a terrible future Stereotype towards LEOs. Before anyone says this isn't common one innocent NO Knock Warrant Murder is One to Many IMO & if it was my family it would never under any circumstances be forgiven.
