Trial Opens Over Raid on Elian Gonzalez Involving Tyrannical use of Force by Armed Federal Bureaucrats Story dated 24 January 2005
Someone is finally trying to teach federal bureaucrats that they cannot go around harassing people. "13 neighbors and protesters are seeking up to $250,000 each, claiming that agents used excessive force during the armed raid." One of these armed bureaucrats doused a woman with tear gas; another had threatened her with a shotgun, while uttering profanity. I hope these men have to pay the full amount. It would also be nice if the person who ordered the raid were also liable under a respondeat superior liability theory, as would be the case if you or I ordered our security forces to harass other citizens. The plaintiffs contend, as part of the complaint, that many of the agents were prejudiced toward those of Cuban extraction and, as such, "intended all along to use excessive force."
