Paterson, New Jersey, cops knocked in Michelle Clancy's door at 5:50 a.m. one morning. They shouted "rudely" at her before realizing they had burst into the wrong home. Then they forced her and four family members, including her 13-year-old daughter, to stand outside in the cold while they raided the right building. Clancy says they had to wait 20 minutes. The police department says it was only 10. "Even when you are in your own home you can be held hostage like that," said Clancy. The police department promises to pay for any damages to the Clancy home, but officials don't seem very apologetic. "These things do happen," said Lt. Anthony Traina.
Let people join with the like-minded to reject officials and laws that don’t suit them and to construct systems that do.
