Transparency in Police Work

Or rather, the lack thereof…

Huron County, Ohio, sheriff’s deputies forced their way into the home of John Collins, threw him to the ground and handcuffed him. They forced him to lie there face down while they tore his home apart. Collins says they finally they figured out they were in the wrong place. They were supposed to be searching another unit in the triplex that Collins lives in. When a local paper started asking questions about the raid, a judge sealed the search warrant. In fact, the judge also sealed the order sealing the search warrant, and the sheriff is refusing to release the initial complaint that led to the raid.
