    Idiot cops raid wrong house due to unsecured wireless connection. A lesson the FBI has already learned to avoid. Luckily no one was injured or dogs shot in the process.


    SWAT team throws flashbangs, raids wrong home due to open WiFi network | Ars Technica

    I'd say these idiot cops need to be paying WAY more than just damages. They should be sued into submission so they think twice before using thuggery tactics against law abiding citizens,

    oh the irony!!!




    they attack the wrong people because someone online was probably talking about cops being overly aggressive and being willing to use the new laws that allow you to defend against cops attacking you.




    its beautiful, isn't it?

    Flash bangs are so much fun though.

    I was an enabler for SEAL team 3/5 in Ramadi Iraq and we use to toss them under cars that followed to closely to are vehicles........UNTIL ......... someone threw the pin and dropped the bang right back into the turret. Everyone was o.k. except our Terp who was deaf. Nothing is worse then deafening your Terp. No more Flash bangs cause of some idiot.

    Actually now that I think about this that is exactly what happened. They bought tactical gear and got all excited to use it. They could have easily used the soft knock approach safely in this small town. SOF uses soft knock in war zones a SWAT team should be able to use it in Evansville Indiana.

    A problem arises when there are those of us who keep a weapon handy at all times while at home and the cops arrive at your address by mistake. They come crashing through your door and you grab your gun thinking your being robbed. The cops see your gun and shoot you dead. This kind of thing has happened I believe. I for one think that house raids are not the best tactic.

    There is no such thing as secure WIFI. You should know that, Helpdesk. Someone with the time and the knowledge will eventually get in.

    When all you carry is hammers, everything looks like a nail.

    A) I don't work in IT
    B) You can at least TRY to make it harder by passwords and/or encryption, which these people failed to do, bringing this upon themselves.

    You must have trained them well :) When I was in Baghdad they would rarely stray closer than ten car lengths behind. Only one time do I ever remember bringing the 50 caliber down and that got their attention fast. I was there when it was standard practice to be nice...trying to win the hearts and minds :)

    I agree, I rarely have a handgun further away than arms distance. If I heard a loud crash bang that's the first thing I would naturally go for. Much better to wait for me to be leaving and pull me over or just knock. Glad I have kick in protection on my door, from the videos I've seen online of what I installed it would take a few mins with a battering ram...I think I could convince them to stop or they'd get tired before it escalated.
