Police suspected guns
Llewellyn said police had reason to believe a gun was in the residence, which was why they did not knock.
A copy of the warrant provided by Hasenei listed items to be seized, including a Sig Sauer Rifle and three ammunition magazines for the rifle, as well as a police gear bag, county police field procedures manual and guide, and more police-related items.
Llewellyn added that when police have reason to believe there might be firearms in a residence, they take precautions to ensure the safety of the officers and anyone inside the house.
“This often includes the use of the tactical team, which is specially trained to deal with potentially dangerous situations,” she said.
Llewellyn confirmed Hasenei filed a complaint about the incident with the Howard County Police Department and that police are investigating.
She said no officers had been placed on any kind of administrative duty following the complaint.
She declined to comment on whether any items were seized in the raid on Hasenei’s house, citing an ongoing investigation.
It also included killing their dog laying on a bed. The police say it “charged them” but there was a bullet hole in the bed.
What if the police suspected blacks or Jews were within the residence? Would that be enough justification for the newspapers to just report the facts rather than demand the officers involved be sitting in prison rather than continuing to go about their jobs? These thugs weren’t even suspended from their jobs!
Just a note to any police that raid my property. Yes, I own guns. I also own explosives–LOTS of explosives. Please just knock. We’ll all be much happier. If you have a warrant I will physically cooperate.
