that didn't need to happen. This time, another cop.
A police officer suffered fatal injuries while performing a pre-dawn no-knock raid on a local residence to search for drugs. Several
officers were shot by a resident as they tried to enter an apartment
through a ground-level window under the cover of darkness.
Police spent 12 hours combing the house for evidence of drugs. No drugs were listed on the evidence sheet. They did seize a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, according to documents obtained by KWTX.
I'm sure there's some reason, so I'd like to know: why the bloody WINDOW? Seems like trying to get through a smashed window wearing X pounds of tactical gear would be a bit, awkward? Especially if you actually think there's a violent druggie inside.
What made this so damned whatever that it was decided to break in through WINDOWS in the night instead of serving the warrant when he left? Y'know, in the daylight?
