A SWAT Team Tore Down This Woman’s Home and Left Her With a $50,000 Bill
Vicki Baker had an unusual plea for police officers in McKinney, Texas, when she learned an armed fugitive had holed up in her home: Do not destroy the property.
That plea went unheard.
During an hourslong standoff with the man and a 15-year-old girl inside, SWAT officers shot approximately 30 tear gas canisters into Baker’s property, blew up her garage door, and drove an armored vehicle over her fence.
Then the city left with no offer of compensation and the insurance company wouldn’t cover damage done by “government.”
