A no-knock warrant—regardless of any justification provided by law enforcement—is essentially a license to kill.


One might argue that this is necessary in some cases, but we should be explicit in calling it what it is... because in a country like America where so many worship at the altar of guns and violence, an unannounced entry into homes will result in many violent confrontations.


So the question I've been asking in my own private conversations is: Do we want to live in a nation where police commanders have it within their discretion to authorize strategic operations that escalate the


likelihood of gunfights in residential spaces? Is that the type of policing our society needs?
