Atlanta. Police conduct a no-knock SWAT drug raid at 3 am. Bust open the door, and toss in a stun grenade, which lands in a crib on the pillow next to a baby’s face, and goes off.
The injuries are horrifying.
Channel 2 has decided not to share most of the photos because of the graphic nature of the childâ€™s injuries.
“He’s in the burn unit. We go up to see him and his whole face is ripped open. He has a big cut on his chest,” Phonesavanh said. “He’s only 19 months old. He didn’t do anything.”[…]
[Police Chief Rick] Darby told Channel 2’s Wendy Corona that the entire unit is very broken up about the incident.
â€œYou’re trying to minimize anything that could go wrong and in this case the greatest thing went wrong,â€ Darby said. â€œIs it going to make us be more careful in the next one? Yes ma’am, it is. It’s gonna make us double question.â€
