At about 7 a.m. one morning, Darryl Harris heard a loud thumping at his front door. When he answered it, someone stuck a gun in his face, and handcuffed him. Meanwhile, several Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies began searching his house. They pulled out his four sons and forced them to sit in the porch in their underwear. Every time Harris asked one of the deputies what they were looking for, they just told him to shut up. Only after they found his badge, and verified his was a probation officer, did they tell him they were looking for his brother-in-law, a man who has been in prison since the 1990s.
