WP: ACLU Alleges Police Wrongs in Raid
The Post reports that the ACLU has filed suit on behalf of a woman whose home was raided by police seeking evidence tying her son to a shooting at 15th & F NE. The son did not live with the mother, and the ACLU says police did not do enough to determine whether he lived there before obtaining the warrant. The ACLU alleges that police violated DC law by failing to get the required special permission from a judge to execute the warrant at an early hour (inhabitants awoke at 4:30am to the sounds of breaking glass, and flash bang grenades). The house that was raided is in the 1300 block of Queen Street (Trinidad).
