The misuse of no-knock raids is probably the second most outrageous current practice in the American justice system (second to the blithe acceptance of prison rape), but this one is possibly the worst I've seen:
What makes the case especially egregious is not that the police may have gotten the wrong home, that they shot a man, or that they were covering it up or going silent. We've seen all that before. What's mind-blowing about this one is that they've continued abusing the poor guy, even after it should have been clear for some time now that they made a mistake.
