Police state: A Kansas family’s home is raided by a gun-toting SWAT team because police found tea leaves in their garbage pails.

The family, which were entirely innocent of any wrong-doing, also had to spend $25,000 to find out this fact, as the police stonewalled them when they asked why their house was raided.

    No mention of a civil suit. This will continue until the decision makers are held personally accountable for bad decisions.

    So the Kansas Keystone Cops don’t understand that they were relying on unreliable testing to determine that they needed to raid a home.

    Why didn’t the Keystone Judge insist upon confirmation before issuing the Keystone Warrant?

    It seems that the Kansas government is a pack of key-stoners, perhaps fresh from a trip to Colorado, where being stoned is now legal.
