    To me, this story reads that UK LE believed someone at face value and did not check or verify info - just acted on it and some father is dead.

    25 or more years ago I opened my door at about 11:00 pm to York Region Police LE in Ontario with guns drawn - they had the wrong address. Not much seemed to happen at the adjacent address they asked me about. I consider myself lucky to be alive and to have raised my 2 toddlers in the house at the time. Have always wondered why LE everywhere don't get they are in the business of being lied to.

    Imo, chances are the case would collapse in a New York minute and find LE culpable. The secrecy is not going to help the overall LE relationship with the public - again jmo.

    One suggestion was that the operation (and potentially the evidence that couldn't be revealed) had something to do with a memory stick the police had lost containing the details of police informants:

    Wow, what a story. To me, LE everywhere has managed to 'stack the deck' in their favor. The same type of nonsense in this story is happening in Toronto at the moment - the Chief gave orders that were followed, but he can't testify to what he did or said - similar nonsense to 'corporation sole'. Imo both translate to 'you can't touch me no matter what I do'.

    Not going to help anyone - least of all LE. Jmo.
