    Agree that 7 million is excessive, but they should receive compensation as well as a public apology!

    The affiant on the warrant has some explaining to do and the SO needs to review policies and procedures on obtaining search warrants and verifying information for same.

    While I pony know what is written in the article, this sounds like a rookie(s) trying to make a name for themselves and innocent people and their children paid the price.

    Obtaining an arrest or search warrant should not be taken lightly...

    Very Sad and unprofessional situation Former government CIA employees house raided and no charges no evidence found the drug dogs didn't find anything you are humiliated infront of the community and the neighbors. The City fathers better get their check book out fast and come up with a good number! The couple said their ordeal began when a Missouri Highway Patrol trooper saw Robert Harte and his two children leave a hydroponic store that caters to organic gardeners with "a small bag of merchandise." Hydroponic gear is legal and legitimate Granted a few bad apples might improperly use it but the case officer who signed for this warrent has alot of explaining to do!Two drug-sniffing dogs were brought in, the family claims, but neither found anything. Deputies tried to claim then that the 13-year-old boy was using marijuana. This kind of behavior fuels distrust of law enforcement!

    7 million is a little excessive?
