Georgia Bill Legalizes Police No-Knock Raids

As with most bills, its intended purpose is not what the Georgia bill actually accomplishes. The bill was supposed to place restrictions on police no-knock raids. But what it actually does is legalize them, because technically, police no-knock raids are already illegal in Georgia. That of course doesn’t stop police from executing them however. 11Alive reported: The Georgia Senate Judiciary Committee passed a bill that would restrict no-knock warrants by police. The hearing lasted two days and Read more […]

No-Knock Police Raid Victim Shot in the Back, Face Down

Here is how the no-knock police raid went down: The police had gotten a warrant to search the house of David and Teresa Hooks for meth. But guess who gave the police this information? A meth addict who had come to the Hooks’ house just two days prior to the police raid, burglarized their home, and stole their black SUV. The meth addict burglar told the police that he had found meth in the Hooks’ SUV, which turned out to be a lie. So, that burglary and theft of their SUV happened, and then Read more […]

Cop Kills Sleeping 7-Year-Old Girl

A cop killed a sleeping 7-year-old girl in one of those middle-of-the-night, no-knock police raids a few years ago. So far, the only charge that the cop’s still facing is “recklessly discharging a firearm.” The case’s most recent trial on October 10th ended in a mistrial, the same way the first trial concluded. The judge had dropped the involuntary manslaughter charge against him. Police State USA summarized what happened: On the evening of May 16, 2010, the Detroit Police Department’s Read more […]

Another Innocent American Dies in No-Knock Police Raid

A 59-year-old Georgia man is the latest victim of a no-knock police raid. The police had gotten a warrant to search the house of David and Teresa Hooks for meth. But guess who gave the police this information? A meth addict who had come to the Hooks’ house just 2 days prior to the police raid, burglarized their home, and stole their black SUV. The meth addict burglar told the police that he had found meth in the Hooks’ SUV, which turned out to be a lie. So, that burglary and theft of their Read more […]

Man Faces Death Penalty for Defending Himself Against Cops in No-Knock Raid

It was back in May of this year that police officers broke into this guy’s house around 5:30 in the morning. Actually, they don’t call it a break-in when it’s police. They call it “serving a search warrant.” They choose the worst time of day (or night) to conduct their search. They do it at a time when most people would be taken by surprise. This isn’t such a good idea, especially in a state like Texas, where so many residents are armed with guns. So, this almost-50-year-old Marvin Read more […]

Police Kill Two Family Dogs in No-Knock Raid

A no-knock raid was executed on a St. Paul, Minnesota family’s house recently. The police had a search warrant for drugs and weapons. As for the probable cause, which is supposed to be the basis of a warrant, I have no idea if they had any. They claimed to have reliable information. But if all they had was hearsay from some anonymous person, that’s not good enough. These days, having adequate probable cause isn’t a concern for police. They just want to be able to “legally” raid as many Read more […]

Former Cop: No-Knock Raids are About Getting Federal Grant Money

I know there are good cops out there. But sadly, the good ones don’t last all that long. They end up getting fired, forced to resign, or they quit, because they can’t take the politics anymore. So, we’re left with either bad cops or those who will do as they’re told in order to put food on the table. The group Photography is Not a Crime (PINAC) conducted an interview with a former Crowley, Louisiana cop. He was one of the good ones but became disillusioned with all the no-knock raids they Read more […]

Cops Leave 75-Year-Old Grandmother in Handcuffs In Botched, Wrong House Raid

In an early morning raid, Virginia State Police barged in to Ruth Hunter’s apartment, handcuffed her with ties and began interrogating her about drugs or if anyone she knows, even her granddaughter, was involved. Local CBS affiliate WTVR reported: She said officers told her during the raid what they were looking for, and court documents also show the information. She said she had nothing to do with the investigation. Virginia State Police said a drug investigation is what prompted a Henrico County Read more […]

Police Officer Killed By Homeowner Who Thought He Was Being Burglarized

Police always say that what concerns them the most is making sure they are safe; that they are able to get home safely to their families. And if that means shooting and killing an innocent person to ensure the officers’ safety, then so be it. Better safe than sorry. It’s not like a civilian is all that important anyway. What doesn’t make any sense is when a police SWAT team decide to do a no-knock middle-of-the-night raid on someone’s house because of what some anonymous “informant” Read more […]
