Man Dies in Police Raid on Wrong House

A 61-year-old man was shot to death by police while his wife was handcuffed in another room during a drug
raid on the wrong house.

Police admitted their mistake, saying faulty information from a drug informant contributed to the death of John Adams Wednesday night. They intended to raid the home next door.

The two officers, 25-year-old Kyle Shedran and 24-year-old Greg Day, were placed on administrative leave with pay.

“They need to get rid of those men, boys with toys,” said Adams’ 70-year-old widow, Loraine.

John Adams was watching television when his wife heard pounding on the door. Police claim they identified themselves and wore police jackets. Loraine Adams said she had no indication the men were police.

“I thought it was a home invasion. I said ‘Baby, get your gun!,” she said, sitting amid friends and relatives gathered at her home to cook and prepare for Sunday’s funeral.

  1. Well, I guess the weather is getting nicer so these assholes needed some free vacation days, along with the promotion points for sure.

  2. "Police admitted their mistake..."

    I don't know about you, but that just makes me feel a whole lot better.

  3. He who hesitates, dies.

    Don't die with your safety on.

    1. He who hesitates, dies.

      Yes, I was recently thinking that since I'm not going anywhere and my tombstone is already laid, I should have the grave dug now and then covered. If it comes to the end, it will make a good fighting position and when they kill me, all my family would have to do is put a Confederate flag over me and fill it back in.:)
