Drug task force that burned a toddler this week also killed an innocent pastor in 2009

• Washington Post

"The person I blame in this whole thing is the person selling the drugs," Terrell said. "Wanis Thonetheva, that's the person I blame in all this. They are no better than a domestic terrorist, because they don't care about families – they didn't care about the family, the children living in that household – to be selling dope out of it, to be selling methamphetamine out of it. All they care about is making money.

Of course, Terrell's task force didn't even know there was a child in the home. So it's hard to argue they "cared" much either, at least not enough to let the kid's safety trump the safety of the officers, or the need to get into the home quickly to prevent any evidence from being destroyed so they can preserve their conviction. It's also a bit much to call Thonetheva a "terrorist" shortly after his own officers have just burned a baby.
