SWAT Raids Wrong Home (Surprise-another one)
WTOC Savannah ^ | 9/12/13 | Alyssa Hyman

A home was heavily damaged after an operation to find gang members who are indicted on 97 counts.

SWAT members were looking for Jashavious Keel. He is one of the suspects named in a Chatham County indictment. The district attorney's office said 14 West 61st Street is his last known address.

Note how quickly the city is jumping to do repairs. Also note that there appears to be no apology forthcoming. Which is of no matter. LE agency apologies aren't worth beans anyway.

"He had listed that as his address"

Let me tell you what that means. They arrest some scum, he gives them an address with no proof. They accept it as the gospel (because they are morons) and later use it to destroy innocent people's home, as well as terrorize them. This is real "terroristic threatening". Not some kid with a gun shaped pop tart.

Here is a useful map provided by the CATO Institute:

Botched Paramilitary Police Raids

An Epidemic of “Isolated Incidents”
“If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern.”
—Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006.

I'll have to remember the local police chief's and mayor's addresses in case I'm ever arrested.

A no-knock or SWAT-style home invasion should have a higher burden of proof than “that’s the address we had on file.” Either that or We The People get to deploy claymores for perimeter defense.

The only good news is that these Gestapo units are morons. Next time maybe the suspect will list Harry Reid’s address.
But, one of these days, one of these raids is going to eclipse Waco.

well it appears that SOME cops had little difficulty in locating and apprehending Jashavious Jermain Keel in the past...=

Too bad he didnt give them 16oo Pennsylvania Avenue WASHINGTON DC as his address...

So the ops couldn’t stake out the place or otherwise verify if the perp actually there, before demolishing the home and terrorizing the innocent citizens?

In my view a SWAT team that invades the wrong house should face the sakes charges I would face if I invaded a house. Each individual cop should be prosecuted for breaking and entering, threatening, and unlawful restraint.

Interesting map.

Thanks for the link.

Looks like the number of Innocents killed is about 3 times the number of nonviolent criminals killed.

Would like to see the data in table form. It is hard to get an accurate count because of similar colors.

This HAS to STOP.

He had listed that as his address...

And my sister-in-law's lowlife of an ex-shack up from 20 years ago uses our house as an address even though he never lived here.

Criminals lie.

It would be a bit pointless to go after the trigger pullers. These guys are told "this is the house, and you're looking for this person."

The problem is the systematic incompetency, entitlement, and casual assumption of do-whatever-we-want-we're-the-LAW that allows crap like this to happen -- somebody put that address on file as belonging to a criminal w/o verifying it, somebody tagged the house as the target w/o verifying it, somebody gave the OK to the "raid" w/o verifying it, etc etc. Never mind that police shouldn't be legally allowed to blow their way into a house like this, without an extremely compelling reason. And I don't consider snagging somebody they did catch and release on once already to be a compelling reason.

This is a very deep and systematic problem that needs to be addressed.

A No Knock Raid should be limited to Hostage Situations Only. There needs to be some liability and personal accountability for wrong house raids. Banning LEO's involved for life from working in law enforcement would be a good place to start. If such a raid results in death of innocent homeowners then criminal liability {charges} should apply.

So if a criminal were to list his address as 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue would they take the time to ascertain the veracity, much less his actually being at that address and at that time?

Or are they just using AR’s and flash bangs on their fishing expeditions?

Even fisherman have more intelligence as to the probability of fish being in the area they cast.

You address it by getting them all. When a big city department loses 10-12 JBTs in a bad raid the whole department gets the message and cities around the country get the message. A dozen cops doing time represents a million or so in training dollars down the tubes. It might even make it a bit hard to recruit replacements.

Hey Karl, these punks use that info so their little dick steroid abusing tough guy fantasies can be acted on. These kids can dress up in all of their gear and play tough guy. This is beyond out of control fellow FReepers and no, this old boy has no idea what the answer is. (Well, yeah I do really......). There was a thread earlier today about just how many Fed. related agencies are armed and geared up. (I think it was 70?? or so). Don’t worry tho, the jackboot slurpers will show up soon and tell us how wrong we all are.

No, actually, they should be in MORE trouble than you would. They committed the same crime, but did so under color of authority.

“It would be a bit pointless to go after the trigger pullers.”

It is not pointless to go after the trigger pullers. They are guilty, even when they skate in court. They are using the gestapo tactics. Find them guilty of murder, premeditated, and give one or two the death penalty. Not long and no LEO would accept the assignment.

Now go after the judges and the prosecutors. They are pure evil in their disregard for the sanctity of the rights of ‘We the People’.

Every one of these raids is as bad as Waco. David Koresh was out and about in the community on a regular basis. The want him, it is easy to apprehend him and arrest him. But no, the who purpose of the raid on the compound was to anilate everyone in the compound. Who was in charge of all that? None other than ERIC HOLDER! Evil POS!

Strangely, the exact spelling and even syllables are unique, yet the name is entirely -- and tediously --typical.

Looking forward to the expository lecture he delivers when he receives his Fields Medal someday soon.

But no, the who purpose of the raid on the compound was to anilate everyone in the compound.

The initial raid was to show off the BATF's toys and tactics to the media when they were fighting for a bigger budget. Why else would they name the raid "operation Showtime"? It didn't become a "no survivors allowed" operation until the FBI's hostage roasting team got involved.

It is hard to believe that was over twenty years ago.

Conservatives and Tea Party members could be making GIGANTIC inraods with the under 30 crowd by leading the charge against these obscene power abuses and making it know that they are leading the charge and are among the only people willing to take actual initiative on this. The increasing gov’t intrusion on individual liberty is a much more severe issue for millennials than one might think. There are certainly way more millennials than you might think who care way more about this than, say, global warming.

All signs of distancing from God. Reckless behavior, fear, cowardice, dodging from being magnanimous. The crime(s) which may or may not have called for this precipitous action isn’t the big story here, and it does not excuse the rest in any case.

God lets this nonsense go on as a warning of what drifting towards hell is like, until people go and hug and cheer that Lion of Judah again.

The problem is that there is almost no “positive spirit” left in the scene. Which is a “distancing from God” problem. Nobody wants to hit these perfumed prince scouts of blue in the head because they are too fragile (or at least claim it) to be able to rise up again doing the right thing next time around.

Chicken. Buck-aw.
