    Being woken up by half a dozen police officers

    Have I made any mistakes? Is it correct to begin with "being woken up by..."

    Being woken up by half a dozen police officers and then held pinned to the floor for a long time, was not an experience David wanted to repeat. It didn't help that the police apologized later on. He was treated as the worst criminal, although he had never committed any crime. David asked a chief inspector how it was possible that in the 21th century and the access to all kind of information, the police got the wrong address, but was told that mistakes happened all the time.

It didn't help that the police apologized later on. He was treated as if/though he was the worst criminal, although he had never committed any crime. David asked a chief inspector how it was possible that in the 21th century and with all the easy access to all kind of information, the police got the wrong address, but was told that mistakes happen ed all the time.

    I think that was a lack of concentration.

    It should have been "in the 21st century."
