Ultimately the bust down the door tactics need to stop and the cops are certainly going to think twice about using such tactics. You can certainly bet the cops in Indiana are double and triple checking addresses.

And about the SWAT guys, the same law also applies for them, if they do their job correctly they will find the right home. If they make a mistake on the address and invade the place, that would be their mistake!
