Toddler critically burned during SWAT raid

ATLANTA A family says a SWAT team raided their home in the middle of the night and seriously injured a 19-month-old boy with a stun grenade.

Alecia Phonesavanh told Channel 2’s Ryan Young her child is at the Grady Memorial Hospital burn unit, and is in a medically induced coma.

Phonesavanh said she was at her sister-in-law’s home in Habersham County early Wednesday when police raided the house.

"It's my baby. He's only a baby. He didn't deserve any of this," Phonesavanh said.

4. You got that right



The Administration, the Congress, the DEA, the State of Georgia, the For-profit Prison industry and most especially the Habersham County Special Response team are all complicit in this baby's agonizing terror.

They ripped a hole in this baby's chest as well, but the media are too squeamish to show that pic.

Gotta protect the violent thugs that call themselves law enforcement.

I hate this nation and what it has become

5. It's what Police States do.

 

- How much clearer does it have to made for people to see?

K&R

“Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission.

How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. ”

22. In a nutshell, it is this:

 

''Once the state you have created largely controls the primary means of your survival, the state no longer needs you, you need it.''

How is this avoided? In many ways. In as many ways as one may find different types of grass. Different species of corn flower. Different types of frogs. Beetles. Snakes. Germs. You do it with: De-centralization -- Non-hierarchicality of systems -- Resource-based decision process, just like we see in the world itself.

- If we want to see the blueprints, all we must do is open our eyes.



Eve: ''All this riot and uproar, V... is this Anarchy? Is this the Land of Do-As-You-Please?''

V: ''No. This is only the land of take-what-you-want. Anarchy means "without leaders", not "without order". With anarchy comes an age or ordnung, of true order, which is to say voluntary order... this age of ordnung will begin when the mad and incoherent cycle of verwirrung that these bulletins reveal has run its course... This is not anarchy, Eve. This is chaos.”

V for Vendetta

9. This is another sign of how militarized our society has become over the past decades......

 

9/11 was just good cover for local police forces to weaponize themselves. I think they had always wanted to play "war" but could never justify the expense of the armored personnel carriers, battle armor, etc. 9/11 gave them that cover.

We have got to stop the "war on drugs". We need to be smarter about this.

Facts
1. Drug usage and drug availability has not been affected by the war on drugs
2. De-criminalizing or legalizing at least marijuana takes the profit out of the drug trade
3. Changes to drug sentencing has to happen because our prisons are bulging with non-violent drug offenders

I hope the municipality is sued and has to pay a significant award.

Maybe they will think twice before they do this again.

10. whats interesting to me is

after reading everything i can find on this story including the statement from the police, no one has mentioned how much Meth was found in this raid. how much meth is a young childs face worth?

END THIS STUPID WAR ALREADY

11. I am close to tears. THis is the worst kind of felony if a private citizen does it.

Yet the SWAT will get off with a reprimand. Maybe even a "job well done."

That's how our justice works in America today. Our politicians are to blame. A non-partisan cluster fuck.

16. The detective knew in his heart there were no children there. Al least next time he's gonna be

doubly careful.

So if I heard that right the family was at the home because their own home had just burned to the ground. So the baby avoids the fire, but can't get around the grenade to the face.

I hope the drug warriors feel the fires of the hell they belong in.

18. It states the they have no insurance for their child. Why not? Well first of all Georgia did not

expand Medicaid and refuses to allow ACA. But this family is homeless because their home burned down. Unless they have fantastic jobs they should still qualify for the old Medicaid. What is the story behind this issue?

24. War pictures of the innocent

How many pictures we've seen of children being held by their grieving family in war-zones. Their bodies torn by errant shells and misguided intents. Now this, another type of war with all of its brutality and "collateral damage." Damn it all.

29. The whole point of no-knock warrants is to find drugs before they get flushed.

They're dangerous to cops, to ordinary people, to children, to animals, but who fucking cares? Gotta find the drugs before they go down the porcelain express.

32. Meth residue

So, it wasn't pot, but meth? They were cooking meth at the house with a baby?

It sounds as if there were lots of people who should take responsibility for this. The police, and the people who were breaking the law.
