22. It happens every day.
Things have changed. I was in a wrong house raid once--two longhaired dudes in tie-dye with handguns from the DEA. I'd be dead now if this had happened last year instead of fifteen years ago.

I had a lot more respect for law enforcement before they resorted to these chickenshit tactics.
