Man Dies in Police Raid on Wrong House

By Vicki Brown
L E B A N O N, Tenn.
A 61-year-old man was shot to death by

police while his wife was handcuffed in another room during a drug

raid on the wrong house.

Police admitted their mistake, saying faulty information from a drug informant contributed to the death of John Adams Wednesday night. They intended to raid the home next door.

The two officers, 25-year-old Kyle Shedran and 24-year-old Greg Day, were placed on administrative leave with pay.

“They need to get rid of those men, boys with toys,” said Adams’ 70-year-old widow, Loraine.

John Adams was watching television when his wife heard pounding on the door. Police claim they identified themselves and wore police jackets. Loraine Adams said she had no indication the men were police.

1. So I guess in TN if you want to put a hit out on someone just call in a claim they have drugs?

 

And the Police Chief scrambling with "It's not our fault!" Bull.

On edit: Lebannon, TN is a town roughly 40 miles South of Nashville with a pop. of roughly 26,000. I know the area and it is filled with rebel flags and plenty of racists.

9. One would think that one who knows the area would know that the town is actually East of Nashville,

a very progressive city, and full of some of the nicest people in the country.

11. You are right, it is. My mistake.

 

I don't know the city that well but have passed through it many times riding my bike through the "country roads" that surround it. There you will see what I am speaking of. Even coming into Nashville from the East you will be greeted by a huge rebel flag coming in on I40. I love their farmers market though.

2. How to get leave with pay, kill someone. In Houston they only

get three days leave.

7. It appears so, but stories like this shouldn't go away.

 

All the names are the same. Exceptions are the location of the city on the Cato map while ABC declares the age of the victim as 61 and Cato 64. Good link to have. Thanks.

8. the double standard for police officers is a sick slap in the face to tax payers

these frutiloops greeding for badges need to be convicted as the criminals they are regardless of their uniform. Until then, cops will ALL be held in suspicion as dickheads with superiority complexes.
