    I say yes the individual should be compensated. If law enforcement destroys and or damages property the the property owner/renter should be compensated.

    It depends on a lot of factors.

    For example, the home owner may have holes in their wall, but what if the police had a good reason to believe that something may be hidden in the walls. I would consider that justified.

    During rightful police raid? Depends, by rightful I will assume they were on the right property and everything was by the book. In that case, likely not. Otherwise yes. Also, they [government] should be extremely restricted in the type and amount of property confiscation they can do.

    A wall can be patched up,a destroyed wall might require a lot of drywall.

    Even if the raid was righteous, if the police go beyond force that was justified and reasonable then the renter/ homeowner should be compensated through the police department's errors and omissions insurance policy.

    That is my opinion too.
    The police can get a search warrant to any property they want. Contrary to television, those are basically rubber stamped by low ranking magistrates and municiple judges.

    If the raid is performed through legal sanction and the raid results in charges and later a conviction, then no...they should not have to pay for damages sustained at the property.

    So you want a homeowner/renter to wait several months to a couple of years before they get reimbursed for the damaged caused to their property? Seeing how we are innocent until proven guilty I do not think it should matter if there isn't or is a conviction.Innocent people shouldn't get their property trashed and not be compensated for the damage caused.

    I votes 'yes', though I would qualify that to maybe 90% of the time.

    Especially when they raid the wrong place. When that happens, the only question the police should ask is, "To whom should the check be made out to?"
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
