She says a man on the phone told her to take melatonin and "get over it."

They were going to smash her door in with the ram, but realized they were on the ring camera and decided to walk away.
Still no apology, but at least they left without damaging her stuff

The difference there is:
1. Police photographed with proper trigger discipline, and;
2. The person they were there to get was actually there.

While this is a pretty traumatic mistake, I will point out that when the US Marshal's service is going after someone, with guns drawn, it's normally someone dangerous enough that the firepower is justified.  It still shouldn't have happened, you hate to see it happened, and the government should probably write a $250,000 "I'm sorry" note to apologize.

$250,000 is pretty steep for an incident where no one was physically injured. Low to mid five-figures, maybe $100,000 if it's on tape and the tape looks bad.

Staples is like, then one of the guys in the hallway is like, wait, this is apartment and then instead of saying the apartment number, was like and then said my apartment number and then kind of repeated it again and then they ran out and said, that's the wrong apartment.

Oh, but the price tag went up when they double-downed on the dickishness. I'm sure some nice lawyers all over the place are looking her up as we speak

When the person is THAT dangerous, and you have the DANGEROUS guns drawn, I'd think it prudent to double-check the address.

/did they even get the guy/gal?

Probably left when he heard all the commotion.  The F-up very likely gave him the opportunity to escape.

They should hire pizza delivery drivers to serve warrants and go after fugitives.

They know how to find the right address and it would be safer than their current job.

They sure skedaddled like roach's. She was lucky she and her child were not gunned down. Protocol would dictate that a business card or a "Service With A Smile" card at least. For an outfit as strak as they claim to be, being unable to verify the address before contact is a a huge Fark-up. I'm sure Donald Washington and David Anderson will be taking a meeting later.

Good thing she didn't have a dog because I assume they'd have shot it.

I think most pigs draw their guns all the time.  Nothing to do with danger.

If their target is above 5 years of age the guns will be drawn.

Did you see the guy's name was Jamar?  Can't be too careful.
 
2021-10-27 2:25:18 PM  
Okay. So she is very careful not to say her apartment number.  That's smart I suppose. Or would be if the number of the apartment across from her wasn't crystal clear and unblurred in the ring video and the reporter wasn't standing directly in front of the building showing the address. So the news just gave out her name, address, and apartment number.
 
2021-10-27 2:46:06 PM  
Stupid pigs.
 
2021-10-27 3:27:29 PM  
Notice how she wasn't shot, beat or anything else?
Because she was compliant, told them what she was doing, was cooperative etc.
Now, had this been a real criminal, we know what the outcome would most likely
have been!

Way to set the bar for what's an acceptable civil rights violation.

how hard is it to setup a hidden camera to see when the guy comes and goes...then maybe get him when he leaves?

We are told that these raids are planned... how are they always skipping the "make sure the person is there" part of the plan?

You can't take that for granted anymore. This guy might have outstanding fines at court for all we know.

Where's the fun in that?
It's like one of those surprise boxes/gifts/Kinder (if you're lucky), where you don't know what you're going to get!

Well, pizza delivery drivers have consequences when they get the wrong address...
