I assume most of you have used a chain saw or been next to one that was in operation. It’s loud. As a tool, it’s pretty darn terrifying and its destructive capability is intense.
We need to do a better job of getting the average citizen to picture themselves in this all-too-real situation:
Judy Sanchez, of Fitchburg, says she awoke to heavy footsteps in the stairwell on Jan. 26 and walked into her kitchen in time to see a blade chop through her door.
“I took two steps, face the second door, and I heard the click of a gun, and saying, â€˜FBI, get down,â€™ so I laid down on my living room floor,â€ Sanchez told WHDH.com. “I was screaming, â€˜You have the wrong apartment, you have the wrong apartment,â€™ over fifty times. And then I seen the big blade coming down my door.”
She says she was held face-down on the floor at gunpoint while her 3-year-old daughter Jiâ€™anni cried in another room. […]
Sanchez says she and her daughter now have trouble sleeping. The mom told WHDH she now sleeps with a baseball bat next to her bed.
Our home is our most sacred place of refuge. The place where we’re supposed to feel safe, comfortable, and private. With the mass production of drug war raids, this kind of thing can happen to anyone.
