Terrible thing to happen and I hope the baby comes out fine, but let's put blame where blame belongs. The guy was dealing and probably making meth in a house where there was a child. The child is a victim of the drug dealer's actions, not the police.

"The grenade was tossed into the house when a SWAT unit from the Habersham County sheriff office and the Corneila police department conducted the surprise raid when serving a no-knock search warrant. ” Bou Bou’s” father, mother and three older sisters were also sleeping in the room but were uninjured.The warrant contended that the an undercover agent had purchased methamphetamine at the house the day before and officials justified the no-knock warrant on the grounds that the drug dealer was dangerous and possessed firearms.
Raiders found no drugs, gun or cash — nor the suspected drug dealer — at the house but did find the Phonesavanh family who was visiting from Wisconsin after their house had burned.
The suspected drug dealer, 30-year-old Wanis Thonetheva, was arrested later and was in possession of about an ounce of methamphetamine, Sheriff Joey Terrell said."

Someone in the police dept needs to go down for this and if the baby dies they will have his blood on their hands and should be executed.

Should the guy who was dealing drugs out the door be executed too since he is the one that caused this? What about the owners/renters of the house? Shouldn't they also face execution for allowing drugs to be dealt at their house and causing this?

Everybody likes to point fingers at the cops, and I agree that they could have done a better job of knowing who was in the house, but the cops never would have even been at that house without A) a drug dealer and B) an owner/tenant allowing drugs to be dealt there.

Could not have said it better.It would figure that Veggie would blame the cops over the drug dealers.I mean the drug dealer is just making a living right??????????????

Again the drug dealer and landlord did not launch a grenade in the house killing this child. Yes the dealer is partially to blame (not sure if the landlord knew what was going on) but at the end of the day because if the direct irresponsible actions of the police an innocent child could lose his life.

And the direct irresponsible actions of the drug dealer and the direct irresponsible actions of the person who lives there and allowed the drugs to be dealt out of their home. They all share an equal part.

Partially to blame?? If he is not endangering the welfare of a child by dealing drugs this does not happen.Even you are not that dense to realize this

I agree that was stupid and irresponsible of him to deal drugs in his childs presence but that dosen't excuse the negligent actions of the police dept that could possibly cause the death of this child.

I excuse nothing. All I am saying is the problem starts with the dealer.

The dealer had previously been arrested with an AK-47 in his possession. It would be ignorant for the cops to go to where hey think he lived without planning for him to potentially be hostile and dangerous. Using your logic, if the cops tried to pull someone over and they ran the cops should just get their license number and go to their house later rather than pursue them.

the question is do/did the parents know that drugs were being dealt there? <br />
if so, they should be charged, if not, then the relatives should be.

The militarism of the police in this country has far reaching consequences, and this child is one of the many casualties. If this was an isolated incident it would be one thing, but it happens on a fairly regular basis and sows distrust in a profession that is supposed to "protect and serve". Why bash downs doors with guns blazing rather than watching, waiting, and apprehending the suspect when they come out of their house?
