An Indianapolis family is outraged after they say two detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department rushed into their home and pointed guns at their children while they searched for a wanted man.
"He said go into the living room right now and he had a gun like this to me, so I just started walking and I said, 'Sir, please don't shoot me,' " said Thompson.
"He had his gun on her, on her and he already knows she's only 13 years old, that's a child. There's got to be some median, whatever their policy is, it needs to change," said Reynolds.

Everyone makes mistakes, cops are humans too. it's protocol to have a gun, and to use it when raiding a house. I'm sure the cops were all expecting a criminal, and so coming face to face with a child shocked them honest mistake, and I'm sure they will apologize and pay for the damage. Christ be nice to a cop, they are humans and people too and they are good people for the most part.
Don't they even stake out a house before a raid? We are coming into a time when events of this nature will start to end very, very badly...and maybe not for the innocent citizens!
