We Are Above the Law Declares County Attorney
August 19, 2014 | Paul Craig Roberts
Habersham County, GA: This is the jurisdiction that allowed intentionally, or through negligence, a SWAT team to break into a home with violent force in the middle of the night and throw a stun grenade into a baby’s face, sending him to a hospital for weeks where he was in life support, has ruled that it would be illegal for the county to pay the baby’s medical bills.

The negligence of the police, and thereby the county, is a triple dose.
It was the wrong house.
A SWAT team was unnecessary in order to exercise a search warrant for a drug suspect.
There was no excuse for throwing a stun grenade into a baby’s crib.
But the county attorney has ruled that the county is not liable for these massive incidences of unbridled negligence.
However, the unjustifiable SWAT team assault on the family in the home was legal.
As the saying goes, “a fish rots from the head.”
The rot in government accountability that began in Washington has now reached the local level.
