Sheriff's department launches internal investigation after deputies enter woman's home

All across America, law officers are grabbing powers they never had before, that are not theirs to grab-- bullying, arresting, abusing citizens. At least this woman video taped the perpetrators. If she finds a good lawyer, she should be able to sue.

Attorney H.A. Sala says based on the video evidence, the Sheriff's
Department could have a lawsuit on its hands because of the way they
forced into the home without any knowledge of the wanted person being
in the home. "They have to knock, state a purpose, say they have a
warrant and give time for the person to surrender," Sala said.
