SPRING VALLEY, N.Y. (WPIX)

It was a classic case of mistaken identity for a Spring Valley family Thursday when federal agents and police raided their home and reportedly held their teenage daughter at gunpoint.
The father, David McKay, said police dragged his wife, brother-in-law and daughter out of bed, separated him from his family and even threatened to shoot their dog, according to a report in The Journal News.

The federal Drug Enforcement Administration had an arrest warrant for a man they believed lived in the Spring Valley family's house, but it turned out he lived a couple houses away.
"You go barging into someone's home with guns and pull them out of their bed, you better make sure you have all your i's ... dotted and your t's crossed," McKay told The Journal News.

The raid was part of drug trafficking investigation that involved over 200 federal and local officers and has so far led to the arrest of 26 people across New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, officials said. The DEA believes they are responsible for distributing more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana since 2006.
"We sincerely regret that while attempting to execute an arrest warrant for a member of this drug trafficking organization, the innocent McKay family was inadvertently affected by this enforcement operation," Special Agent in Charge John Gilbride said in a statement issued to PIX 11 News.

2. What part of "the land of the free" do you fail to understand?
How can you be truly free if other people are doing drugs you don't like?

3. Well,Shit...
"The DEA believes they are responsible for distributing more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana since 2006."

2200 Lbs over 4 years...550 Lbs a year.

The DEA makes this sound like a LOT of Pot...Not Even!

Thats about enough to keep the average Hippie Community (Think Boulder/Santa Cruz/Eugune/Portland Smokin for about,oh a month maybe?

Then the DEA gets the Address wrong...Gee,what a coincidence.

Hey DEA...I have a suggestion...How 'bout ya'll go look for something that is really Harmful...Like an Overweight OxyHead that lives in Palm Beach,Goes Doctor Shopping,Carrys Viagra over country borders,spews Blovaited Bullshit that pollutes the minds of millions of not so bright people!!

It is a fairly small town. This just sucks.
