Yet Another "Wrong House"

A SWAT team seeking to serve an arrest warrant bashed in a window and a sliding door entering the wrong address.

According to a March 19, 1995, Associated Press story, the Oldsmar, Florida SWAT team broke into the home of 31-year-old Charles Inscor, knocking him from his bed and detaching him from a machine assisting his breathing, before realizing they had the wrong house.

The correct house was two buildings down. The "suspected drug dealer" there was arrested later without incident.

The real outrage of this story is not that the team demolished the wrong back door, but that police now serve arrest warrants in a manner more fit to third-world dictatorships. This is an inevitable consequence of the drug war and its ever-escalating invasion of our rights.
