Court rules against man whose house was destroyed by police

A federal appeals court in Colorado ruled that a local police department does not have to compensate a homeowner whose house was destroyed by 19 hours of gunfire between officers and an armed shoplifting suspect. The judges upheld a lower court’s decision, ruling that the city of Greenwood Village did not owe homeowner Leo Lech any additional compensation.

UTTER BULLSHIT! The guy was not involved in a crime and the police demolished his home ($580k value) and expect him to swallow that loss?!? What the hell?!?

This home owner should take this to the Supreme Court. What a bunch of bullshit; if the police are going to use explosives to blow holes in the side of someone's house to catch a SHOPLIFTER, they owe the homeowner for the damages they cause.
