Greenfield, Indiana native and CATO policy analyst Radley Balko reports that in the last 25 years there has been a 1,300 percent increase in the number of paramilitary raids on American homes, mostly for trivial matters.

Fort Wayne News-Sentinel editorialist Leo Morris comments on this in his excellent blog Opening Arguments in a post titled "They're coming to get you".

Read more about this on Balko's blog The Agitator in his post "Overkill".
