Recording gear can be repurchased. (Well, some of those vintage mics and maybe that 40 year old Martin guitar and... but you get the drift.)

Unfortunately, stories like this where innocent people are injured and killed are more common.

Musta been the Waco Recording Studios! Cops are so out of control it's pathetric. They wake up and don't get any nookie so they go club civilians like baby harp seals. Gives 'em a boner I guess.

I was in Detroit once when the news was that the police responded to a burglar alarm, went to the house, rang the bell, and when a man answered the door, shot him dead in his pajamas. And of course, they went to the wrong house.

Old story or new?

Sounds like they are re-reporting this story from June 13, 2001.

Or did it happen again?
