Weren’t the police out of uniform (plainclothes) when they invaded the home?
Plainclothes, no-knock warrant. This no longer passes the smell test, either for corruption or epic incompetence, I’m not yet sure.
PLAINCLOTHES? In a no-knock raid?
My G-d, I, myself, assumed the ONLY way this could have happened would have been with all the cops totally Rambo'd up in their body armor and helmets and stuff, and it comes out that they were in civilian clothes?
Someone please tell me that this is not true and that these guys would never have been so stupid as to have done such a thing. I'm even going to say no, this can't possibly be true! Can it?!
And, it also comes to light that the .357 magnum handgun the man supposedly shot at them with didn't even exist?
This is gonna turn out badbadbad for somebody. No way HPD is gonna be able to keep the facts from coming out, and they need to come out sooner rather than later before they get even more confused.
Almost even beginning to sound like something out of a movie, a crew of rogue cops doing home invasions "under the color of law"...
BUT - Let's be fair about it like we always are about everything else, all the time. The facts will come out.
But, one would think it fair to say, HPD needs to come up with some straight answers and cut their losses, whatever they turn out to be.
