Gosh do we get our panties in a wad and get our feelings hurt about everything and anything now days. I think the homeowner said nothing was damaged just moved or unplugged. If my neighbor was doing something bad enough that SWAT had to be called out I first would be glad to be thankful to be evacuated from my home for fear of what my neighbor might be capable of doing and then I wouldn't expect a personal apology letter from our sheriff of the next to nothing things that happened while SWAT was in my home. I would be grateful that no one including and especially my family was harmed during this. I would also understand that the sheriff simply has way too much going on to send me a thank you note or apology letter or whatever this homeowner needed to get her panties back out of that wad. Grow up people, it ain't always all about you!!!

"Franz said her blinds were opened, her Xbox and TV were disconnected," WHY? Were they afraid what they were doing might have been viewed/recorded by the NSA?

I wouldnt mind them going in my house for a reason like that BUT they dont need to be disrespectful to our home or belongings and throw our shi.t on the floor. Atleast when it is all over go pick up the mess yall left.

“in the best interest of the safety of our officers, the community, as well as any suspects, victims, or witnesses" This is the problem; their priorities are exactly backwards.

We the people need to read the constitution more and force our elected leaders and public servants to obey the plain text ORIGINAL AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND meaning. I don't care what some corrupt judge says. I would argue that the police are dressed and armed as infantry therefore they are soldiers. Now let's read the actual law: ( Amendment V No person shall be . . . .deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation. Amendment III No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

And this is the problem. We the People are the ones that control the Government through a contract we call the "Constitution". Our taxes pay their salary thereby they are employed by us, we the people. It is only through the lack of knowledge or will that allows these Unconstitutional acts to occur. It is up to us, we the people, to stand up and say, "No, this is a violation of my Constitutional rights." To violate the constitution is to violate a contract. If an employee and employer has a contract to pay for services rendered and one of the parties of the contract do not hold their end, they are in violation and can be sued and/or prosecuted. The Government is no different. If a law is passed that is unconstitutional, then that law becomes null and void. It is only by the knowledge of your rights and and standing up for them do we truly have a constitution. Failure to defend our rights will result in a true loss of rights.

You know what? I've changed my mind. If they come to the door, screw it, let them in. We have no rights. We have no privacy. Police abuse of power is symptomatic all across the country. No point in fighting it.

I'm afraid if SWAT knocks on my door and tells me I have to leave, I'll probably come back to the front door with a shotgun and refuse. Then, they'd have a second reason to violate rights.

These "officers" surely knew that what they were doing was unconstitutional and illegal, but just like little children they were trying to see how much they could get away with before they got their hands slapped. In my opinion, they should be slapped and kicked.
