Things like this require systemic changes starting with the state legislature. We have to demand better intel before a warrant is ever issued and stricter punishments for screw ups like this.

How about ending the practice altogether?

In Indiana, the state legislature wrote a law that allows homeowners to meet force with force, if the invasion is unreasonable. The Indiana Supreme Court just flat out ignored the law when it issued a ruling against a person who had (unreasonably) used force. The Indiana legislature was perplexed that it had to pass the law a second time - but there is no guarantee the courts will give effect to the law. Legislatures too rarely use impeachment.
Anyway, my point is that legislation alone is not enough. The judges are out of control too.

“We have to demand better intel before a warrant is ever issued..”
I agree. Sadly, that used to be the role of the Judicial branch....Now it appears that Judges are rubber stamps.
