CBS News correspondent Priya David and her husband Alex Clemens got a look at a news story in progress from a unique angle this week — the FBI mistakenly raided their home with eight heavily armed and armored officers. They had the wrong family and appeared to dial down a bit when they were told that the woman upstairs nursing a baby was a CBS correspondent.
The police arrived at 7 a.m. and pointed guns at the family while trying to cuff Clemens. He finally got them to listen that they were probably after the family that moved across the street months ago.
The most interesting thing about this raid was the listed crime: marijuana. While many are arguing for the legalization of pot, the feds and local police continue to conduct major raids targeting marijuana.
In defense of the police, it is often hard for the police to learn of a move of this kind. I can only imagine the response of the family across the street as they watched the FBI raid the wrong house.
