You see, the point many of us are trying to make, is that getting the wrong address, unduly puts law abiding citizens in unnecessary jeopardy. Reasonable, law abiding people, that have their doors kicked in by armed men tend to assume the worst.
No one is saying that the police should not of went to the wrong address i tought that would go without saying but obviously not. As for methods of forced entry the same methods are used most of the world over. I have seen on a progharm showing police in England using a chain saw to enter a house. If the police entered the wrong house here then it would be reported to the police ombudsman for investigation and disciplinary action taken if necessary. If you are not sure weather its the police coming trough your door or someone wanting to do you harm, then you would have to make a judgment and better get it right.
