Albany Cops Threaten to Arrest Citizens During Training Exercise
March 26, 2013
Police in Albany, New York, conducted a SWAT drill without informing residents last week. Live tear gas and fake ammo was used in the raid on an abandoned apartment building. People were locked down in their apartments and threatened with arrest during the “hostage training scenario,” theTimes Union reported on Tuesday.
One resident told the newspaper police threatened to arrest him for trespassing as he tried to get to his own home.
