    Oops! Right address, wrong occupants?

    In a nutshell, after allegedly making drug purchases at this address, LEOs conducted a raid where they had the right address but failed to note that new occupants had moved in a few weeks ago. Well, accidents happen, but what gets me is the "Sorry, not our fault, fix it yourself" attitude afterwards.

    I'm the guy next door that is polite, but does not tell you crap.
    Any 'no knock' warrent will be responded to accordingly as if you are BGs, as anyone can yell 'Police, open up'.........., because we do not do anything illegal at my abode.

    Granted, the physical location (property) in the story/article/link by the OP had a past history of crime....... or had probable cause of crime.

    Oops, LEO fail.

    Make sure your intel is up to date!

    Why doesn't the squad who busted down the door just pitch in a few bucks each to fix the guy's door? It couldn't cost more than $200 total... They probably dropped $500 at the bar after the raid.

    Just had a flash back, years ago in a town in the NW the FBI got a tip that a wanted felon was staying at a local motel and they contacted local LEOs for assist. At 5:30am the motel gets surrounded by everybody and neighbors were moved and the car also matched along with plates from state and no numbers. At about 6:20am a man came out on the porch and all the cops jumped out and took him to the ground, it was the wrong guy, the FBI had given the wrong address to everyone so now all the local LEOs faded off into the sunrise and let the feds explain. Sorry had to throw this out there

    From article;
    Later West Palm Beach Police spokesman Capt. David Bernhardt told CBS 12 officers did have the wrong name on the search warrant. But he said officers had made drug buys at the apartment very recently.

    As for the couple's broken front door, Bernhardt said legally that is the landlord's responsibility.

    Capt David Bernhardt's department porked the puppy on this one.
    The city needs to ante up a new door and all damages.

    Hell, the city of Detroit would at least make that right.

    I'm not so sure about that one. I'm sure there are some lawyers in West Palm who are savvy on 4th Amendment issues, and I hope these folks find one ASAP.
