Just after 2 a.m. on May 28, 2014, the Habersham County SWAT team broke down the door of a Cornelia, Georgia home and threw a flash-bang grenade into the residence.
Check this out:
The device exploded in the playpen of 19-month-old Bounkham Phonesavanh, known as “Bou Bou” to his parents, severely burning the baby boy.
“It landed in his playpen and exploded on his pillow right in his face,” Alecia Phonesavanh told an Atlanta television station. “They lied to me. They kept tell- ing me my son was OK,” she said. “When I saw his playpen I just about threw up. I got really sick, I was so scared.”
For their part, the SWAT team raid was a total failure. No suspects, drugs, cash, or contraband was found in the house. The suspect named in the “no knock” warrant, who was later charged with mere possession of methamphetamine, didn’t even live at the address. He was arrested without incident at a completely different home.
