Colorado Woman Sues ATF for Entering Home without a Warrant, Pointing Guns at 8 Year Old

Linda Griego of Colorado has filed a lawsuit against the ATF for entering her home without a warrant and threatening her and her 8-year-old  son, Colby Frias, reports the WND.

Griego was already cautious about opening the door to her apartment due to a restraining order against her estranged ex-husband when a SWAT team came knocking, early on the morning of June 15, 2010, pulling Griego out of the shower and her son out of bed. The WND recounts that the agents were looking for a previous tenant who Griego explained didn’t live there anymore.

The SWAT team allegedly cuffed Griego, restraining her from comforting her child, and seemed to ignore her efforts to identify herself while they busted down the door of the child’s room.

In the meantime, Griego said they held her son at gunpoint with laser sights visible on his body. She says that two years later, he is afraid of all police and startles easily, often sleeping in her bed out of fear.

The agents finally let them go after emptying Griego’s purse and finding her ID. They left without apology.

The Indiana Supreme Court recently ruled that “there is no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers.” Though admitting it was dismissing hundreds of years of Supreme Court decisions and the Magna Carta, it said, “We believe however that a right to resist an unlawful police entry into a home is against public policy and is incompatible with modern Fourth Amendment jurisprudence.”
