The Phonesavahs’ attorney also says an independent investigation showed authorities used faulty information to get a search warrant.

The SWAT team did not find the person it was looking for in the home. An investigation is underway into the handling of the case.

You were not expected to aspire to excellence: you were expected to make peace with mediocrity…" - James Baldwin The Fire Next Time
