If the police destroy your house for any reason they should pay.
If not, finding their houses and returning the favor would not seem to an overreaction imho.

Well if he's playing the system, then he's rolling the dice i suppose.
If not i hope they pay for his gaff.
That's when you go to their house and do it to them
Lech said rebuilding the house and replacing its furnishings cost nearly $400,000 alone—an endeavor that required Lech to take out loans. He is still in debt to this day, he says.
Meanwhile, the Walmart shoplifting suspect the police spent 19 hours bombing out of an innocent person’s home reportedly stole a shirt and a couple of belts, according to a police affidavit (he did also attempt to run over a police officer blocking him as he attempted to flee).
Police say Seacat, driving away from a Walmart he allegedly shoplifted from, was high on meth when he tried to strike and kill an Aurora police officer who was responding to the shoplifting call on foot. Police say when Seacat began to hole himself inside the randomly-chosen Greenwood Village house, he fired a shot at officers he saw outside.
Homeowners offered help after standoff

A federal appeals court in Colorado ruled Tuesday that a local police department does not have to compensate a homeowner whose house was destroyed by 19 hours of gunfire between officers and an armed shoplifting suspect who had chosen to barricade himself inside to evade arrest.
Colorado homeowner owed nothing after police SWAT shootout destroys his house, federal court rules
But now it was just a neighborhood crime scene, the suburban home where an armed Walmart shoplifting suspect randomly barricaded himself after fleeing the store on a June afternoon in 2015. For 19 hours, the suspect holed up in a bathroom as a SWAT team fired gas munition and 40-millimeter rounds through the windows, drove an armored vehicle through the doors, tossed flash-bang grenades inside and used explosives to blow out the walls.
Police blew up an innocent man’s house in search of an armed shoplifter. Too bad, court rules.
A walmart shoplifter, who barricaded themselves in a house, warranted a 19 hour gun battle that destroyed this man's home. Is a shoplifter, especially a walmart shoplifter, worth such an effort to apprehend? What did he steal? A steak, some trash bags, or a $20 iphone cable? Doesn't matter! He stole and come hell or high water we'll blow up a $500,000 dollar home to get him!
I wonder how the judge who ruled the city doesn't owe would feel if I barricaded myself in the judges house for 19 hours causing it's complete destruction.

yeah i'm sorry that home doesn't look like it's worth a half a mil. would do good to go for 175 thousand, that's compared to homes that are built to much better standards now days.
the land might be worth 500k, but the house nah.
front of home
plus if you notice the power meter is gone, wonder how long after the incident were the pictures taken.
funny now that i look at the front of the house, does that SUV behind the tape next to the car in the drive way look like some sort of emergency vehicle. wonder why it's parked right there in the drive way as if it's part of the crime scene.
