Warrantless police raids are unfortunately common, but this one in Indiana has a few twists. The raid was to track down threatening comments about police posted online… through an IP address.
No suspect. No identity. Just an IP address. After they flash grenade an elderly woman’s home, and bust the place up (raids are not neat affairs,) they had no warrant to produce. No right to be there in the first place. They also had a TV film crew in tow. Filmed police actions are very hip these days, like COPS but more exciting. And it pays well, but ultimately displays just how criminal police departments have gotten. Remember Aiyana Stanley-Jones in Detroit?
As usual, officer actions are being defended by top brass.
