The following is just a portion of the full article, which contains an alarming video clip.  See the link below for the link to the article.  Ask yourself how you would respond to local authorities destroying your front door in an attempt to "help you".  


...Firefighter Jason Lopez led one of the teams from the west-side command center at Roosevelt Middle School starting Sunday morning.

"People have anywhere from four inches to four feet of water," said Lopez, after a short break early in the afternoon.

Lopez's team checked the 1000 blocks of D, E and F avenues in the northwest quadrant. Mostly, they found water in basements and debris caked to fences. Firefighter Cheme Fairlie gave water to a guinea pig that had been left behind in one home.

Angela Tague, a member of the STAR 1 search and rescue team from Ames, ran into any angry homeowner on E Avenue NW.

"He was saying 'Where do you live?' and 'How would you like it if someone busted your door open?," Tague said.

Police Officer Josh Bell later had a heated exchange with the man, and told him that if he didn't go back inside his house and stop harassing the strike team, he would be escorted out of the area.

The man was visibly agitated about his broken door and pointed at Bell.
