Architect Paul Brown was in the basement of his home at the end of Adelphi Avenue when he heard a “huge noise” Friday afternoon that drew him up the stairs where he was meet by gun in his face.
He was handcuffed and placed on a chair. And a gun was still pointed at his face.
Why a gun was pulled on a guy in his own home, and why it was still on his face while he was handcuffed is beyond comprehension. When have we descended to a society where the "war on drugs" justifies actions such as aggravated assault, and criminal damage to property? The police were reported as being angry the suspects were not guilty of something too!
“They were upset they didn’t find anything. When I asked them who was going to pay for the door they basically said, ‘Not us’,” said Brown, who noted the door on his luxury home was valued at $3,000 some 12 years ago and the lock set was another $130 from Home Depot.Of course these actions simply end up costing taxpayers a lot of money. So even if you support the war on drugs, you can't argue that it's not costing you money.
He has hired an attorney, Christopher Cohen, to look into filing a civil suit.
