This happened here last year and I think the homeowner was right in what he did in defending his home. The city got off cheap personally I think she should own the city. As a former LEO I consider this mistake as unacceptable they didn't even take the informant with them to verify the real home (Next door). Another good reason to always shoot first then ask questions later and also a good reason to use something that will penetrate heavy material (ie.. 12ga Slug) Story The wife of the elderly man killed when Lebanon police raided the wrong house will receive at least $400,000 in her settlement with the city. Lorine Adams has received $200,000 in a lump sum and will receive $1,675 per month for life, or for at least 10 years, whichever is longer. If she should die before the 10 years is up, the balance would go to her beneficiary. Her husband, John Adams, 62, was shot to death when Lebanon police wrongly burst into the Adams' home in a drug raid in 2000. The officers had intended to raid the house next door. The guaranteed payout over 10 years would be $201,000, according to the mediation settlement, and over 15 years it would be $301,500, all to be paid by the city's insurance carrier. Lorine Adams is 72, according to settlement documents. The documents were made public yesterday after The Tennessean sued under the state's public records law. The city and Lorine Adams, through her attorneys, had included a confidentiality agreement as part of the financial settlement. ''Yes, the law is very clear about us seeking public records,'' Tennessean lawyer Alan Johnson said. ''That is a document made or received by the city in connection with the transaction of official business.'' Thinking his home was being robbed, John Adams fired a shotgun at the officers before they shot and killed him. Police Lt. Steve Nokes, head of Lebanon's narcotics unit, was fired for supervising the raid, but was later acquitted on related criminal charges. The settlement agreement also shows that Lebanon paid John Adams' medical bills of $45,000 and his funeral expenses of $5,804.
