Georgia Cops Enter Wrong Home without Warrant and Hold Man and Child at Gunpoint

Acting on a cellphone ping, Georgia cops entered a home without a warrant and held a man at gunpoint while searching for missing children they believed could be harbored inside.

But the only child inside was Scott Kuhn’s 4-year-old grandson whom he was babysitting.

Brookhaven Deputy Police Chief Brandon Gurley told WSB-TV his officers acted appropriately but Kuhn is not happy at having the cops enter his home without permission and with guns drawn.

He said the front door of the home was left unlocked so they are required by departmental policy

“We’ll make sure that the occupants are ok,” he said.

And what better way of ensuring their safety than by pointing a gun at them?

Gurley said his officers were acting on a tip from another law enforcement agency that pinged a cell phone to the house they visited.

Pinging is a way cell network providers use GPS to determine a person’s whereabouts. Police are required to obtain a warrant before obtaining this information, the Supreme Court ruled last year.

But it evidently is not accurate if it sent police to the wrong house where they had to hold an innocent man at gunpoint.

And there is still the issue of the missing kids and why haven’t police released their names and photos to ask the public for help in finding them rather than enter private homes with no warrant and with guns drawn?

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
