LEO Raids: A story and an OpEd

Drug agents shoot dog at wrong home

The Kraft family lives at 14025 S.E. 70th St., a three-bedroom, two-car garage block home just in front of a mobile home. Ocala police Capt. Mike Scroble, an officer with the Multi-Agency Drug Enforcement Team, known as MADET, said the team got the two homes confused.

When officers walked into the Krafts' gated yard and knocked on the door at about 11:30 a.m., Gigi surprised them and was shot, Scroble said.

Michelle Kraft, 29, was baby-sitting a child when she said she heard a popping noise and thought the child had knocked something over. Officers knocked on her door, and she let him in.

The agent who entered the home discovered later she was not the person he was looking for.

Michelle Kraft said that, as the MADET officer walked out, she yelled, "I can't believe my dog let you up to the door."

At that point, she said, they told her the dog had been shot. She found Gigi cowering in the bushes.

Thank goodness it was the child that "surprised them."

It was not clear Thursday whether any investigation would follow the dog being shot at the wrong address. Edwin Kraft said he was told by officials that they would pay for the veterinary charges.

I wouldn't hold my breath on getting that bureacrat to part with his gold coin.

Texas' no-knock SWAT cops invade people's privacy

As these so-called SWAT squads increasingly become America's favorite search warrant delivery service, bungled raids - including many to the wrong address - have skyrocketed.

In these assaults on private property, scores of innocent citizens, police officers and nonviolent offenders have died.
