Masked SWAT Team Storms Wrong Home, Beats Up Deaf 50-Year-Old Liver Transplant Patient

Clarksville police apologize for raiding wrong home
By CHANTAL ESCOTO
The (Clarksville) Leaf-Chronicle
September 15, 2004

Clarksville Police Chief Mark Smith said he will offer two residents a written apology for officers' mistakenly raiding their home Friday night.

''I want to publicly apologize,'' Smith said this week during a press conference, adding that Friday's mistake was the first time in his 28 years with the department that officers had broken into the wrong home. ''There is certainly no pattern here,'' he said.

According to Smith, the police tactical team received information that a drug dealer lived at 343B Old Trenton Road, but they ended up going to the house next door that only had the letter ''B'' on the outside ? which turned out to be 341B.

The residents of 341B, Teresa Guiler and James Elliott, who are in their 50s, were home watching television when the masked men stormed into the house.

Guiler, whose arm was in a sling from a previous injury, told police that they had the wrong man as they pointed a gun at her and Elliott, who is deaf and had recently received a liver transplant, she said.

Guiler went for medical help after the raid, and Elliott had planned to go to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville yesterday to be seen by his doctors.

Smith said that although he feels terrible about the raid, he insists that the officers never used excessive force. But because Elliott resisted, officers had to control him by ''bringing him down,'' he said.

''We (ensure) it's done safely and with minimal amount of force as possible,'' Smith said.

But Guiler and Elliott's attorney, Tommy Meeks, said what the police did is unacceptable.

''What justification can you give to kick a 54-year-old man who's down on the ground,'' Meeks said about Elliott, who is a Vietnam War veteran. ''All he saw was men in masks with rifles. He was terrified. Then to get knocked down and stomped. They picked him up like a suitcase. The Police Department said they acted in normal procedure, but that's not normal.''

Smith said the man they were actually looking for was Jeremiah Taylor, 24, who was arrested and charged Friday night with possession of Ecstasy for resale. A separate warrant was taken for a raid of his home. Taylor was booked into the Montgomery County Jail with bail set at $28,000.

Smith said the mix-up on the addresses came from the drug agents with the Major Crimes unit, who got their information from an informant. But even though the address was reportedly checked before the raid, the wrong house was still entered.

They did investigate to a ''reasonable extent,'' Smith said, adding that policies and procedures will be re-examined and the department's Professional Integrity Unit will investigate.

''You always can learn from your mistakes.''

But Meeks said that the department went too far and that the frail residents are hurting from those ''mistakes.''

''There's going to be some answers,'' said Meeks, who will wait to see what his clients' doctors say before moving forward with any possible legal action against the Police Department.

they offered an apology, what more do you want?
They do a damb good job, of beating, and ruining the lives of drug users/dealers every day, but when they accidentally stomp an inocent bystandard everybody cares.

My friend's father had his appartment raided on accident. While my friends father was in the bathroom the police threw his wife on the bed. The man heard her screaming and came out of the bathroom with his gun (the police had not announced who they were). He was shot 2 times, but survived. He sued the police, but lost the case. Now he has major problems with his back (where one bullet exited) and his lungs (one of which was hit by a bullet). It's pathetic. The search warrant had his neighbors appartment number on it. The police said they misread the number on his door.

thats awful!

who was father's friend's lawyer? Lionel Hutz?
dammit, how could an apology suffice for a couple of bullets thru the abdomen?

It happened in LA in the late 70s. I don't think that the courts had started handing out money so freely yet.

BTW post edited because he was only shot twice not three times.

One of the reasons marijuana is illegal today because growers in the 30s lobbied against hemp farmers -- they saw it as competition, because It is not chemically addictive as is nicotine, alcohol, or caffeine.
