A young Bradenton mother says she was in fear when she looked at her Ring App and saw armed men at her door.
Kada Staples says the men had their weapons pointed at her door and when she said hello, they ordered her to come out and said “we know he’s in there”.
The armed men were U.S. Marshals. Staples believes they were looking for a murder suspect, but they had the wrong apartment. At the time she opened her door and still didn’t understand what was going on.
Florida elementary school principal arrested after driving BMW at neighbor, flipping them off, deputies say “I cracked the door open and they pushed the door open and pushed me and my baby out of the way. They are holding us at gunpoint, screaming, there is a gun about a foot away from her face, ” said Staples as she held her three-month-old baby.
She said the U.S. Marshals kept saying,” We know Jamar is in there.”
“With that, they run in my apartment. There’s probably 6 or 7 of them out there with guns. 3 or 4 of them run into my apartment and are running around. They are still yelling at me that I’m lying,” said Staples.
She says she had been napping with her infant and was the only one inside when the Marshals soon realized their mistake.
“Then one of the guys in the hallway is like, wait, this is apartment and then said my apartment number and then kind of repeated it again and then they ran out and said, that’s the wrong apartment,” said Staples.
Don’t change your voicemail: Ignore that viral Facebook post and do this instead She says the Marshals left, but never even apologized for their actions or their mistake.
“No sorry, no nothing, they tell me, you’re good and another one said you’re fine,” said Staples.
She says when she called the U.S. Marshals Service to ask why officers had entered her apartment, she asked if they could provide a mental health counselor to help her deal with the anxiety brought on by the event.
She says a man on the phone told her to take melatonin and “get over it.”
8 On Your Side has called and emailed the U.S. Marshals service to find out why officers were at the wrong apartment and to find out if the officers involved will face any discipline. The U.S. Marshals Service and the U.S. Department of Justice have not responded.
The feds are becoming a 100% clown show.
Wake me up when the FBI starts arresting BLM and Antifa for their attacks on federal buildings.
Probably looking for Boyd.
Well, at least they didn’t shoot the dog.....................
She’s lucky she wasn’t shot.
Nah, man. I'm pretty f'in far from okay.
Yes. She is very lucky to be alive.
A group of armed people push their way into the wrong address, shoving guns her face and man on the phone told her to take melatonin and get over it?
That alone has be worth 200k
It is NOT an innocent mistake when you Terrorize an innocent woman and child, they deserve 90 days General Population and the State, County has the Absolute Right to Prosecute them.
All you have to do is scroll through this Part I and Part II older video (The Moment After) and see where military/law enforcement will eventually go. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QeZYtApatY
Suppose a husband had been in another room, heard men breaking in, and did what he has the right to do, defend his wife and kid, and self with the required level of force. What if he did what was right and just? He would be dead and possibly the woman and child.
I don’t accept the “Mistake” excuse. Like loaded/unloaded firearms on movie sets, there is no excuse, no mitigating factor.
That should be the end of their career with the US Marshal Service.
But I guess that is too much to hope for. Likely they won’t be disciplined at all.
We’d better be damned careful about having US government police in our towns and neighborhoods. Very very very careful. And besides, branderton has a
Police department already
Disciplined? They’ll probably all get promotions.
Yes, if that clown is wearing a Lenin mask.
Cops are your friends. If you haven’t done anything wrong there is nothing to worry about with a friendly visit from the feds.
Well at least they knocked. But really, cops need to start triple checking addresses, cause they get this wrong too often, and sometimes shoot people for the crime being near confused cops.
That could not have happened. I have read that the Police are on our side since I been on Free Republic. If you don’t break the law, you have nothing to worry about. She must have been breaking some law. If you want to celebrate a lot of birthdays. Avoid having any contact with the Police.
