Meanwhile, in Chicago:
An 82-year-old great-grandmother from Chicago was given the scare of her life when gun-toting cops broke down her door in search of someone else.Elizabeth Harrison remains in the hospital after she says police raided the wrong house on Friday in search of a man she didn’t know.“They were there with the guns drawn: ‘Put your hands up! Put your hands up! Put your hands up!’ ” Harrison told ABC News from her hospital bed in Chicago.“They wanted me to produce this young man that they were looking for. And they would not take no for an answer that I didn’t know him.”Doctors are monitoring her heart rate after the frightening incident.
And who was this suspect who was so dangerous that he could be apprehended only by kicking down a door?
In a bizarre twist, the man police were looking for walked up to the officers as they were explaining to Harrison’s family how they can fill out paperwork to file a claim to get her door fixed . . .Linda Channel, Harrison’s daughter who lives on the same block as her and rushed over following the raid, said the “target” told cops they had the wrong house . . .“You all came to the wrong house. I live at 126, and this is 136,” Channel told ABC, quoting the man.
In the end, the police didn’t even arrest him, due to lack of evidence. Harrison is lucky she’s still alive. She isn’t the first innocent grandmother to be wrongly raided. Or the second. Or the third.
