In the past, many raids went to the wrong house. Criminals would tear down street signs and post fake numbers on their home. These tricks would work.
The system tries to get around this. They now paint addresses on the curb, near one’s driveway on the street. Look around and you’ll probably see this near you.
New homebuilders and apartment managers now put large, conspicuous numbers on the front. This way, mistake is less likely.
America does have a truly invisible and untrackable class of citizens. They have no fixed address. It makes them impossible to raid – a major advantage.
