A baseball bat? That’s really going to do her a lot of good.
No one was hurt, and both g-men and citizen had a good training exercise. So that’s all right then.
No dogs shot, so overall it was an unsuccessful raid.
The FBI should have turned this oops into a win by checking Ms. Sanchez' legal status.
We’ll compensate by shooting some other neighbor’s dog for no reason.
Good thing they had no dogs!
So what would’ve happened if a law-abiding citizen exercised their right to self-defense and opened fire on whoever it was that was USING A CHAINSAW to break into their home at 3am in the morning?
I see these stories every so often (and wonder about the stories that you KNOW get covered up) and I’m waiting to hear something like this:
(UPI) San Diego, California. San Diego police report the deaths of twelve armed Federal agents who early this morning attempted to dynamically enter the home of GySgt. Robert Smith. Smith, a twenty year veteran of an undisclosed SEAL team, reported that he was awakened at 3am by the sound of heavy footsteps on his porch. When he heard the sound of a chainsaw being used on his front door he said he took defensive action with his two legally owned .45 caliber automatic handguns. Investigators report that Smith fired thirteen times at the Federal agents who were trying to arrest a suspected drug dealer at a similar address in San Dimas but came to Smith’s house in San Diego by mistake.
The District Attorney’s office says that no charges will be filed against Smith who was “clearly just defending himself”. Federal agents who later tried to take Smith into custody were rebuffed by San Diego police officers and Marine Corps personnel.
There was no comment from the Federal agency responsible for mistakenly sending the twelve agents to Smith’s home outside of that Smith’s door would be replaced.
It turns out agents were after the other tenant on the floor of the multi-unit building who was suspected of dealing drugs. The raid was called Operation Red Wolf, a two-year investigation into drugs and weapons, ....TWO YEARS and they can't even get the correct apartment of the 'bad guy'? Bang up job there guys!!
Oh well, on the upside -- The agents got to play soldier, and no dogs or other pets were needlessly killed. Or any unarmed women or babies shot while standing in a doorway by the Feebs cracker-jack Snipers.
Under Hoover heads would roll for screw-ups like this.
Not now. Now someone will get a promotion.
Uh....why a chainsaw?
That would be unusual.
Don’t worry! It’s just Leatherface saying, “Here’s Johnny!”.
The War on Drugs has managed to turn both Mexico AND the US into terror states. Quite the twofer.
I hope she didn’t have a dog.
ClintBilly sez: "We got this one right!"
The Federal Bureau of Incompetents strikes again using horrendously bad intelligence. The incompetents had Vasquez under surveillance. They knew he lived in one of the four apartments in the building. They also knew he went into the building and did not leave the building before the raid was launched. They picked the wrong aparment and then kept asking the occupant of the apartment where Vasquez was. She kept responding she did not know. They never bothered to ask if he lived there. They then pulled out scratching their collective noggins (or scrota, depending on which was closer to their brains) wondering how Vasquez got out of the building with being seen.
Turns out Vasquez left his apartment hours later after being certain the incompetents had pulled the plug on the surveillance of the building because they were convinced they had the right apartment and he had somehow escaped.
It was not until the next day when a reporter for the Fitchburg Sentinel and Enterprise reported that they were at the wrong apartment that the Federal Bureau of Incompetents had any inkling that they were at the right building but in the wrong apartment and that they had let Vasquez escape.
Now with the FBI’s history in the Boston area, the question is: Did one of the people in the FBI purposely get a warrent for Apartment 2R instead of Apartment 2F since he or she wanted to protect Vasquez in the same way that the FBI protected James “Whitey” Bulger for 30 years?
So there really is a use for the Tactical Chainsaw Picatinny Rail Mount Accessory.
Sadly, this list needs to be updated.
There is NO EXUSE for breaking in the wrong door.... it is incompetence to the max.
