This from reporter Dan Abendschein:
Parolee raids: the family’s view
Picture this: you hear a heavy knocking at 6 a.m. at your door. You wake up and open the door and 10 police officers are standing there, with a team from the humane society to distract your dogs from biting at them, and a child services team in case your entire household gets arrested and they need to take your children into custody.
Meanwhile, the police come in and search your house, and quite likely end up dragging your husband/brother/father off to jail after finding something incriminating in their room. Meanwhile, neighbors begin streaming out their doors to find a dozen police cars blocking double-parked up and down the block.
There are so many police standing around that they have nothing better to do than tell you what a mistake it was that you allowed the husband/brother/father back into your house after his time in prison, and how they are looking forward to putting him back there.
Not a very fun morning.
