ONLY IN AMERICA: Cops Shoot Up Innocent Family’s House Because They Got The ‘Wrong Address’

A Florida man says police shot up his house like a gang shooting, and it was all because they got the wrong address.

The man asked to not be identified, due to fear of retribution.

He said that he awoke to someone banging on the front door just before 1 a.m. He came to the door and asked who it was, but he got no response.

He was worried that it might be a burglar – since no one identified themselves – so he retrieved his own legally-owned firearm.

But when he got back to the door, bullets began flying through his front door.

Two bullets flew sailed past his head, with more bullets piercing through walls and shattered glass windows.

The man never broke the law. He didn’t even return fire when the trigger-happy cops shot at him. But his family was nonetheless handcuffed and humiliated by being sat on a curb outside.

Neighbors who saw the whole thing said that Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigators stayed at the home until noon Saturday.

The family was not allowed back into their own home until 10 hours after the police shot up their house for no legal reason.

“Upon arrival, a person was confronted and shots were fired,” Ocoee police Sgt. Bob Rivera said. “The investigation is ongoing by The Florida Department of Law enforcement.”

RAW STORY reports:

Police identified the officers as Carlos Anglero and Stephanie Roberts, who were both described as experienced officers.

None of the family members were injured, but their walls are riddled with bullet holes, their windows are shattered and some of their furniture was destroyed.

Now, even though the police admit they got the wrong house, an FDLE spokeswoman said their agency is opening a new investigation into an “incident” at the home, but she refused elaborate.


The department has not apologized for destruction of the house and a threat to people’s life. What was described as “confrontation” was the only reasonable reaction on unknown people acting like a criminal gang. Officers should identify themselves as police. The situation is crazy! As in many other cases with police shootings. They could kill innocent people. We need proper investigation. Cops shouldn’t get away with such a dangerous and hostile assault! If they get away, we all be in danger!

resource for procrastination

if you’re anything like me, working on a computer is a dangerous thing. i’ll get distracted by everything - that one email i should respond to, all the pictures of my dog, tumblr, and so on. I recently discovered an amazing resource to stop that.

it’s called writer’s block, and is free to download! 

when you open it, it shows this screen, where you can choose either a time limit or word goal

then when you start, it opens a document that fills the entire screen like this

and you cannot quit the app or open anything else until your word/time quota is filled. i just wrote half of my english speech that i’ve been putting off all morning, and it took only 20 minutes!

so yup, it’s called writer’s block and is free for both mac and windows. enjoy!

saving you from your read! If you could write one story plot that you haven't already, and it would just instantly spring from your head fully formed what plot would it be?

um um um um ok! idk if this is what you asked but this just…happened because im obsessed with supercat

picture weight lifter kara danvers (no superpowers) in college with TA, journalism double major cat grant, who is more ruthless than the actual professors (and who dresses better than half of them)

kara’s had the biggest crush on this girl because cat’s somehow the TA for two of kara’s classes and if there’s one thing that she’s learned about cat is that she leaves big, scary, gay impressions on people.

or kara’s heart

anyways kara’s got a competition that friday and a twenty page essay due that she’s been revising and editing for over two weeks, and she’s sent an email to the professor because she’s somehow less scary to deal with than cat. except the professor sends back ‘please turn it in to miss grant before friday’ because apparently, even teachers are scared of cat grant???

so on wednesday, after the professor’s fled the classroom and cat’s packing up her papers at the very back of the classroom, kara straightens out her cardigan and says

‘cat, dr. sanders said i could turn in my paper early?”

and realizes that her first mistake is calling her cat, and her second one is forming her sentence like a question
