    TLDR cliff-notes

    So a guy apparently stole 50$ worth from Target.
    Runs in a house, that was empty at the time and shoots at cops.

    Cops decide to throw grenades, spray the house with high caliber bullets and use armored vehicles to go through the walls.
    Leaving it in-salvageable, needing to be demolished and rebuilt.

    Homeowner gets no restitution for it.

    Those cops are basically an army at this point, lol.

    The US truly is the biggest meme of the 21st century. Hilarious and impossible to take seriously.

    Honestly though, WTF were they thinking? GRENADES FOR $50 WORTH OF SHIT AT TARGET??? That's like 2 shirts!
    And it wasn't even his house? Golly, 345k will get you a shack in Denver housing prices. I feel for this guy.

    They don't care about the $50. They went for grenades because he shot at cops. :edu

    He is owed more than what he received regardless of whether they were protecting themselves they still completely destroyed an entire house which was private property. This is totally messed up.

    Fuck the shoplifter for being garbage, the police still over reacted and should have to pay the innocent homeowner for demolishing his house.

    Yeah, most (if not all) jurisdictions have laws in place that say basically the city is not liable for any 3rd-party damage that occurs due to police actions during the course of their duties.

    They're usually intended for things like getting side swiped by a police cruiser during a chase but unfortunately apply to things like this too.

    (Doing this over $50 is absurd, but they guy was shooting at the police assuming the story is correct, which is even more absurd over $50)

    There is such a thing as measured response.
    In big cities for instance the cops are discouraged to start a car chase( unless its a kidnapping or some other big shit), because the damage and risk to the public is greater than the suspects apprehension would be.

    Considering the way the police responded in this case, they obviously were just looking for an excuse to use their big toys.

    "Measured response" was not in their vocabulary that day. "Grenades" and "swat" were though :apathy

    The home was empty and surrounded, so no immanent danger.
    And having a gun doesn't mean they can just demolish the area.
    They could have gassed him out or used a sniper to take him out.

    Truly. I always try to take a step back if I slip into stereotypical 'Damn, America is basically the wild west!' thinking, since it is of course filtered through memes and Hollywood, but ....

    Tear gas doesnt always work. Every one in the military has been put in a gas chamber atleast once.

    Hell I seen a swat raid on a Thanksgiving and the guy ran through his trailer throwing the canisters back out and it fucked the police up...funniest shit in my life hands down....and they lost the case against him as well.


    You don't know if it was at first but you have to get him out, they should've waited him out or smoke him out.


    Either way they don't have to pay the criminal does. It's called restitution.
