 "The child’s parents have contacted the GBI but were told no further investigation was needed."
 A 19-month-old toddler was critically injured after a police flash bang was tossed into his bed during a police raid at a Habersham County home on Wednesday.

“It’s my baby. He’s my only baby. He didn’t deserve any of this,” said Alecia Phonesavanh, the mother of the child.

“It landed in his playpen and exploded right in his face,” said Phonesavanh.

The child is now being treated at Grady hospital and has a 50 percent chance of survival.

“He’s in the burn unit. We got to see him and his whole face is ripped open. He has a big cut on his chest,” said Phonesavanh. “He’s only 19 months old, he didn’t do anything.”

  1. The police don't care, the people in charge, they don't care, they WANT you to be afraid for the people you love, that way you do what they want you to do.

  2. "“There was no clothes, no toys, nothing to indicate that there was children present in the home. If there had been then we’d have done something different,” said Cornelia police chief Rick Darby."

    You mean like not conduct a no knock raid for a minor crime, or perhaps some recon and intelligence of the target before hand....fucking assholes.

  3. I can hear it now, the LEOs will say that the 19 month old resisted arrest and therefore they feared for their safety. After all, officer safety trumps all other considerations and if you die well that is just too bad, sucks to be you.

  4. I wonder when they're just going to go all in and start issuing SWAT teams flamethrowers?

  5. This can't be true- Chuck Schumer says you can hold a flashbang in your hand next to your face and it won't hurt you.
