38. Bou Phonesavanh

“Baby Bou Bou” is lucky to be alive. This is a War on Drugs story.

On May 28th of this year, Habersham County SWAT converged on a house they suspected had drugs and weapons inside. Before entering, the SWAT officers threw a flash-bang into the house. The flash-bang landed in the crib of nineteen-month-old Bounkham Phonesavanh and detonated, disfiguring the child. The subsequent raid on the house produced not a single weapon and not a single drug. All was for naught.

A grand jury heard the case against the officers and decided not to charge them. Furthermore, the state of Georgia is refusing to pay Phonesavanh’s medical bills.
