Another day, another wrong house raided by the original jack-booted thugs at the ATF, who despite local "cooperation" (what city agency is going to tell the .gov to shove off and let them police their town as they see fit?) and millions of dollars in taxpayer funding seemingly don't have a functioning GPS unit among them to ensure this doesn't keep happening.

As a commenter at Unc's place notes, how come such law-enforcement agencies, with weeks to months to plan these highly dangerous and usually unnecessary "no-knock" raids that protect us unwashed from such terrible societal scourges as the sticky icky, regularly attack the wrong place, putting innocent lives at risk, while firemen, with seconds to minutes to respond to a call for service, never seem to screw up where they're supposed to go?

As another commenter at Unc's place notes, why was the ATF present on a supposed drug raid in the first place?  Isn't that the purview of the DEA, or the LMNOP, or another of the thousands of redundant and mostly useless acronymed Federal agencies we're paying for?

The story makes no mention of an apology to the elderly lady and son who were the unwitting victims of this debacle.  Being a government agent apparently means never having to say you're sorry.
