Unintended Consequences

David Hardy writes about the unintended consequences of search and seizure to an innocent man.  Personally, I'd argue that a police search and seizure comes with an automatic bill to repair or replace anything damaged or destroyed in the search, assuming the person targeted is later found innocent or not charged.  That should be automatic, rather than requiring the target to initiate a lawsuit to recover damages.  Police are far too eager to destroy things when they are "searching", and the search itself becomes a form of punishment.  To me, that's unreasonable, never mind the warrant.
