A 68-year-old Evansville, Indiana woman and her 18-year-old adopted daughter really wish they had put a password on their wireless router.

It's getting harder and harder to find positive aspects in many LEO's. The officers involved should be arrested and fired. The idiot judge that signed the warrant should be arrested, fired and pay the damages out of pocket. It's funny how they say th dept. paid for the damage. Um.. no. The tax payers did. The idiots could have googled unsecured routers and realized it could be anyone. I like how they knock then give about 5 seconds before breaking the door. This is a disgusting abuse of power.
Seeing that innocent woman cuffed made me want to puke. The women were to polite. I would have been losing it!
My gosh! This might be old but I have never seen it before. Honored for a shootout at the wrong address! - SWAT Team Honored For Raid On Wrong House
