    A day before the raid on the Rogers', police burst into the home of MIchael Thompson, also of Queens, NY. That raid left the man's mahogany door broken in pieces. The raiders then trained their guns on Thompson while they searched his home and the upstairs apartment of a tenant for drugs.

    Once again they had raided the wrong address.

    To learn more about this significantly negative development in American law enforcement, visit the following website and read an exceptional piece of investigative journalism:

    Not true. Big Brother loves us. He just has to take our rights to protect our rights. It's all for our own good. Trust me. :badgrin:
