Buffalo Police Batter Their Way Into Wrong House


www.buffalonews.com

Armed with a battering ram and shotguns, Buffalo police looking for heroin broke down the door and stormed the lower apartment of a West Side family of eight.

The problem is that the Wednesday evening raid should have occurred at an apartment upstairs.

And, that’s only the tip of the iceberg, according to Schavon Pennyamon, who lives at the mistakenly raided apartment on Sherwood Street with her husband, Terrell, and six children.

Aaahhh, gotta love it.

Yet another botched raid on an innocent family where jack-booted gestapos come right in and terrorize an innocent family, rough them up and trash their house, then act like it was just some "small mistake".

This seems to be yet another recurring theme in recent times...


Pennyamon alleges that after wrongly breaking into her apartment, police proceeded to strike her epileptic husband in the head with the butt end of a shotgun and point shotguns at her young children before admitting their mistake and then raiding the right apartment.

She says she’s left with a broken door, an injured husband, jittery children and — what bothers her most — still no apology from police.

Dang, that is the kind of mistake that gets people killed. Some people are waiting for the day that a swat team stacks on their front or rear porch. It would be too bad if they made that mistake at some places.

“As the officers were in the lower apartment, one of the detectives reviewed the search warrant application and realized it was for the upper [apartment],” said Dennis J. Richards, chief of detectives.


I really like this part of the story. While officers were in the middle of clubbing the epileptic dad in the face and pointing 12 guages at the kids, THEN the detective decides to just happen to take a "second look" at their search warrant to make sure they had the right place.

Erm, ya think maybe you should have double checked it BEFORE you traumatized this innocent family?
