A SWAT team is under investigation for storming into a home in Coconut Grove at around 11 a.m. with a narcotics warrant.
According to the homeowner, Bobby Mclendon, the warrant that SWAT presented to raid his house was for 2 blocks away. However these brutes did not care.
They came in belligerent, with guns drawn ordering children around like slaves. When the children didn’t react fast enough to the officers’ commands one child was subsequently bludgeoned with the buttstock of a rifle.
“They didn’t have any reason to, but they hit my nephew in the head with their rifle. He’s 13,” recounts Mclendon.
Major Delrish Moss, with Miami PD, said that in all of the chaos of the raid, the 13-year-old was injured when he “ran into an officer’s weapon.”
You can’t make this stuff up.
After assaulting the first child, they went into the room of Mclendon’s 12-year-old son, who was asleep. SWAT ordered the boy out of the bed and to put his hands behind his back. As the boy was complying with their orders, but apparently not fast enough, “they punched him in his left eye,” says Mclendon.
