Police are losing element of surprise
Eliminating no-knock warrants by the LMPD is one the dumbest thing I’m heard of in a long time.
Consider this scenario:
POLICE: “This is the police. Open up! I have a search warrant!”
OCCUPANT: “Uh-h-h, one moment officer. I’ll open the door after I’ve flushed all the evidence down the toilet.”
Makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it?
