In this pit thread, tashabot wrote that the police had a “no-knock” warrant for a neighbor. They busted the door down, found nothing, and did not pay for the damage. I’ve heard stories of people having their cars torn up when crossing the border from Mexico. They were just given the pieces and sent on their way.
None of this has happened to anyone I know, so I ask you all this: How much responsibility do government agents (or more likely the agencies they work for) have when it comes to monetary damages caused by them?
