Manprit Somal: What was point of being in custody?

March 18, 2014 

Sheriff Adam Christianson, why on March 3, did Stanislaus County SWAT simultaneously raid three homes and two stores in Turlock, take someone into custody in an unmarked vehicle, get into a officer-caused collision requiring the officer and the person in custody to be taken to Memorial Medical Center via ambulance (the person in custody was checked out and found to be OK) and then was informed by officers that he was free to go with no explanation of why he was taken into custody in the first place?

Why are we wasting our time and money on unfounded searches? And why, during the searches, would your officers bully women and children?
