From ABC News:
A 61-year-old man was shot to death by police while his wife was handcuffed in another room during a drug raid on the wrong house. Police admitted their mistake, saying faulty information from a drug informant contributed to the death of John Adams Wednesday night. They intended to raid the home next door.
One official, later in the article, claims that they did “the best surveillance we could do.” Really? Well, that’s not good enough.
The Cato raid map disproves the claim that these wrong door raids and violent deaths are “rare mistakes.”
UPDATE: We saw this item on the ABC News web site the day before this post, but an astute reader informs us that this incident is not recent and actually happened more than ten years ago.
