Yep, they find themselves in court, and someone will have to offer up half-a-million I think to make this guy happy.

I personally think that a federal, state, or county judge ought to be forced to accompany every single raid on a home. If something like this occurs....you take that judge and lock him for a year or two. This would really limit the possibility of legal papers being approved.

Mistakes will happen anytime government nudges citizens.

Big Jack Boots equals big mistakes.

“Wrongfully-arrested man considers lawsuit after marshals storm home”..........

That happened only a few days ago. What took him soooooo long to decide to sue? Seems like a “no-brainer”.

I love it! Of course I would also like it better if the person filing for the warrant was also held PERSONALLY responsible for any and all (Clerical/serving/wrong address, etc.) mistakes and with mandatory JAIL sentences and Massive fines.

It might make them a bit more careful, don’t you think?

When a LEO requests a warrant from a judge and the warrant turns out to be wrong, that LEO ought to go on a list of officers who cannot have any further warrants signed for three years or more.

Get it right or lose the privilege.

Yes, but one of the problems is that it is only taxpayer dollars. They don't care unless there are individual sanctions against individual officers or other officials.

what you do is jail every officer in the raid, and all of their pensions are turned over as compensation.

There is indeed supposed to be contact with the local elected authority, usually the county sheriff. If the marshalls are acting without the help of the local sheriff their butts are hanging out a mile or more. And by the way, it might help them get the right house. This isn’t far , from what we have so far, from being another Ruby Ridge, and the marshalls had better learn good.
