FBI Chainsaws Wrong Door, Holds Wrong Woman At Gunpoint

FBI agents swarmed a Fitchburg, Massachusetts woman's apartment, chainsawed a hole in her door — apparently that's how cops bust their way into homes now? — and held her and her daughter on the ground at gunpoint for 35 minutes. While the federal agents were going apeshit on apartment 2R, the actual guy they were after was sauntering out of apartment 2F.

"I just happened to glance over and saw this huge chainsaw ripping down the side of my door," Sanchez told WBZ-TV. While Sanchez and her three-year-old and her dog lied on the floor amid the dog's urine (he had an accident), the cops realized they had the wrong place. They managed to nab the guy they wanted in 2F without doing any damage whatsoever to his door which, you know, hilarious twist, right? After, they simply left 2R and told the landlord they'd pay for a new door, leaving Sanchez to begin sleeping with a baseball bat on the side of her bed and her daughter with a lifelong mistrust of law enforcement. Which, given the frequency of these sorts of raids, is probably a reasonable thing.
