This would be the case for anyone, and doubly so for a man who had just been fucking robbed and reported the theft to the police... who in the name of all that's holy would think that the armed men raiding his house would be the cops themselves?

The stupidity and incompetence on display by the police here is flabbergasting. Heads should roll, but fat chance of that.
