Not here for the political aspect, just the police/law/irony aspect. Was this even a "no-knock" case? I have posted the same question to Facebook articles from the local paper, Fox News, etc., but no answers. Rand Paul has introduced a bill to ban no-knock search warrants - it apparently will only affect federal law enforcement: Rand Paul announces 'Justice for Breonna Taylor Act' barring no-knock warrants Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., introduced a bill Thursday to end "no-knock" warrants like the one that led to the shooting death of an African-American woman earlier this year. The Justice for Breonna Taylor Act would prohibit federal law enforcement from forcibly entering a home without announcing their purpose for executing the warrant and their authority. The measure is named after Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT who was fatally shot by Louisville officers on March 13 after they used a battering ram to enter her home. Here's the problem...I don't think there was a no-knock search warrant in the Breonna Taylor case + the police say they did knock and announce. Is this going to be a major legal change based on a completely false premise? Granted, the Breonna Taylor warrant is poorly written, I have been using Jefferson County search warrants as the sole "wrong" examples in search & seizure classes for about 17 years (but I do like the use of pictures). BUT the question nobody seems to answer is, was there even a "no-knock" warrant in the Breonna Taylor case? The detective asked for one, but I don't see where the judge granted it in the actual search warrant: Search Warrant here Note: the scanned warrant is scrambled - Pages 1-3 are a Kentucky search warrant, Pages 4,5,6 and 8 are the affidavit and page 7 is page 2 of the search warrant mixed in with the affidavit and repeated, while pages 5 and 6 should be in reverse order - probably done by the reporter who scanned it. So the 8 pages should be: Warrant - pages 1, 2, and 3. Affidavit - Page 4, 6, 5, 8 (delete page 7).
