In today's WaPo they've started a series on Policing in America and one of the articles spoke of a Mississippi sheriff that was fond of executing no-knock searches and documented one where the deputies apparently had a
fun time destroying the guy's house [NB: this was initiated by an anonymous "tip" [which was done by someone specifically to punish the house owner]
but that's not my question here].
my impression is that in the course of executing a search warrant the searchers can/do cause a lot of damage [in a no-knock, a destroyed front
door at the least]. Under what conditions [and how] can the property
owner get compensated for the damage done?
