So I watched part of the released footage. You have to click through to watch it on youtube.

It's an hour and a half of the body cam on the K-9 officer who is waiting outside to release the dog on the suspect. You can hear them attempting to scare the suspect into coming outside.

That's it. That's the body cam they chose to release. Not the one who fired the gas bombs, not the robot they sent in, not the officer who fell through the ceiling...

Typical.

DNRTFA, I'm assuming the suspect walked onto the scene like Bugs Bunny, leaned on one of the officers all casual like and asked "What's up, Doc?"

According to the article, one of the damages to the home was when an officer was in the attic and stepped through the ceiling. Probably didn't fall all the way through, but for sure would have been a comical moment to see even from the perspective of his/her chest.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today,
I wish, I wish he'd go away...

When I came home last night at three,
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall,
I couldn't see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don't you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don't slam the door...

Last night I saw upon the stair,
A little man who wasn't there,
He wasn't there again today
Oh, how I wish he'd go away...

Infrared doesn't penetrate walls, despite what you might have seen in the movies.

Think about it:  buildings are generally insulated to keep them warm in the winter and cool in the summer.   Insulation is all about either blocking or retaining heat.   Thermal vision is all about detecting changes in heat.

Also, windows block it.  Glass is opaque to far infrared.   Blue Thunder lied to you.

It's a lesson in farce, actually. Click on one of the earlier articles about the incident, and you'll see that apparently, the family that lives there was home, and told the police that the suspect wasn't there, offered them the keys to the house and other assistance, (which would have allowed them to get in without breaking the door down) but these were declined and they forcibly removed the family from the area. They allowed them to return at 3:30 AM the next day, without telling them the house was damaged.

That's pretty much how it works.

You have to ask for compensation.   If they offer it to you, fine (like if they need to build a road through your property), but if it's something like this, you have to ask for it.  They aren't just going to give it to you out of the goodness of their hearts.

In a lot of cases, the local or state laws actually prevent them from voluntarily providing compensation. They literally can't reimburse you unless you win a civil suit.

There was a real life police interrogation of Jennifer Pan where the interrogator says,

"Another thing we utilize is satellites. The satellite is a 24-hour video that's going on. It's recording information ... the military uses it for precision bombing. We're able to go back and review that. It's like an X-ray. We're able to tell ... are the people in the positions that the witness is telling us they were in or are they different?"

I kind of wish she got into an argument about how preposterous that was.

See, the police are allowed to lie to you in the course of an investigation.  This has been well established by the courts that it's perfectly OK for them to do that.

If you lie to them, however, it's a crime.  Even if you misremember something from months ago, without any intent to deceive, they'll charge you with it.
