Don't disagree, Russ. Entirely qualitative, not quantitative.

Not sure how "rare" would be quantified even with a measure against all warrants -- .01%? 0.1%? 1.0%

I think the Cato study (which is a bit out of date) demonstrates that it falls into the "more than you might think" or the "far from unheard of" categories.

Put it this way. I live in a really nice suburb of Miami. It happened twice in two years within a few miles of my house. One raid, the right address was MILES away in what amounts to a ghetto, instead of the million-dollar mini-mansion that got raided. Someone transposed SE or SW or something similar. Hard to imagine how it happened. But, it does.
