Ogden police admit case of mistaken identity
Updated 4:36 pm, Saturday, December 29, 2012

OGDEN, Utah (AP) An Ogden family is upset after armed officers showed up at their home to issue a felony arrest warrant in a case of mistaken identity.

Eric Hill told The Salt Lake Tribune (http://bit.ly/12OrvxL) he opened the front door at 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 20 to find three men with assault rifles and two with shotguns.

He said he armed himself with a baseball bat because it took so long for officers to respond when he asked who was at the door. Family members had feared they were going to be robbed.

Hill, 28, was placed in handcuffs and told he was wanted on a desertion charge from the military. But he was never in the military.

1. WHAT IS NEW?

 

The cops are always making mistakes and then making BIG mistakes. I hope the people sue the cops for everything they got and more. This vet was happy to get out and anyone who wants out should be allowed to leave when they want instead of sticking around for legal slavery. I did good and I earned a few metals for my service. In the navy all promotion is after successfully passing a controlled test. No shine shoes or kissing ass to be promoted. I am so glad to be a vet and a University of California retiree.

2. The Gubmint knows everything about each and every one of us...

 

but they can't tell the difference between the Eric Hill who deserted and the one who never joined any military branch.

Something else is going on here.

3. they dont' need to go barging into an innocent man's house brandishing weapons in front of children

those children will grow up and not trust the police.

good job Ogden, you just made a generation of police officer jobs harder and more dangerous to do in the future.

kudos to those that train our police around the nation --this is really your fault.

making an enemy of innocent people and terrorizing their children with weapons that will make them fear your presence --in a democracy no less.

this will make the job of law enforcement harder and less effective.
