i really wonder, after reading this article, what prompted police to respond in the way they did.

A depressed Army reservist who made a phone call for help says dozens of police responded by surrounding his home and arresting him, vandalizing and searching his place without a warrant, seizing his dog and killing his tropical fish.

can you imagine?
you call for help and you get arrested.
but not only that, they enter your home without permission, trash your place, kill your fish and seize your dog.


Matthew Corrigan, who lives alone with his dog, sued the District of Columbia in D.C. Federal Court. Confronted with a massive police presence after his plea for help, Corrigan says, he denied officers permission to enter his house, but they entered and trashed it anyway

followed by

saying, "I don't have time to play this constitutional bull#!"

translation: we're above the law.

Corrigan seeks more than $500,000 in damages for constitutional violations. He is represented by Richard Gardiner, of Fairfax, Va.

what a story... thoughts?

I am in no way saying that the cops had any right to do any of that, but he should've known better than to call a free hotline and tell them his personal information, along with telling them he was depressed and had firearms.

Not a smart move. He's lucky to be alive to tell his tale.
