No knock raids good idea or bad idea?
Happened to a friend of mine in FL, they shot both his dogs and arrested him. Turns out it was an anonymous tip, they found nothing but a gram of weed, and didn't apologize for murdering his dogs.
Terrible idea, there are too many instances of raiding the wrong house. If someone is breaking into my house it's going down.
No knocks get citizens killed. I know if one were to be executed at my dwelling I would likely not survive. Not because I am a "criminal" but because I will defend my castle to the last round from invaders
This time I agree with An-Cap. Same thing would happen. We've had a few home invasions near here, and, in one, that exact thing happened.
This time. :-) what are some other times you don't agree with me if I may ask?
It's looking more and more like the old KGB around here.
Done properly (meaning supported by STRONG probable cause and a PROPER warrant, they can be much safer for everyone involved - especially for the cops enforcing the laws the public has enacted...
"The public" doesn't enact laws and you should check out how often they raid the wrong house
Horrible idea. There are stories all the time about the JBT's breaking into the wrong houses. Now if someone broke into my home in the middle of the night first thing I would do it grab my gun. Do you think I would make it out alive? I don't. Bad!
Our your in the middle of coitus and the swat team gets to see your jiggly bits.
