Is not it a legal right of every citizen not to let police inside the house without a search warrant? It shouldn't be hard to guess what is being done at the 'right' addresses if there is such a cruel practice at the 'wrong' address. Act in parallel with your responsibilities and start a legal action against those officers of yours who beat up the citizens so much so that people get hospitalized."
