I read with interest your story of mistaken identity that found some 
Cambridge residents cleaning up after police alleged they were conducting 
illegal activity in their dwelling house.

I suppose my only question is to the justices who approved a search warrant 
on the Cambridge dwelling of Fung Han and Shiu Ng: Does excessive 
electrical consumption automatically mean that I am suspected of operating 
a hydroponic cannabis grow operation?

Fortunately, since I don't live in Cambridge (and I am not of Asian 
descent), I don't have much to worry about. I am, however, awaiting the 
embarrassing explanation offered by my local police on the day that they 
bust into my home looking for a home grow but find only large amounts of 
computer equipment, along with several air conditioners.
