    Rand Paul introduces bill to end no-knock warrants


    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) introduced legislation on Thursday to end no-knock warrants, a measure that has bipartisan backing as lawmakers debate broader police reforms.

    Paul's legislation, titled the Justice for Breonna Taylor Act, would prohibit federal law enforcement from carrying out a warrant "until after the officer provides notice of his or her authority and purpose."

    It would also apply to state and local law enforcement that receive funding from the Justice Department.

    ďAfter talking with Breonna Taylorís family, Iíve come to the conclusion that itís long past time to get rid of no-knock warrants. This bill will effectively end no-knock raids in the United States,Ē Paul said in a statement.

    Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman, was fatally shot in her home in Kentucky by police who were carrying out a no-knock warrant.

    Sen. Rand Paul Introduces the ‘Justice for Breonna Taylor’ Act

    June 11, 2020

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced the Justice for Breonna Taylor Act to prohibit no-knock warrants, which allow law enforcement officials to forcibly enter a home without announcing their authority or purpose.

    The bill is named in memory and honor of Breonna Taylor, a Louisville resident and EMT who was killed during a police raid on her home in March 2020, which was conducted under the authority of a no-knock warrant.

    “After talking with Breonna Taylor’s family, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s long past time to get rid of no-knock warrants. This bill will effectively end no-knock raids in the United States,” said Sen. Paul.

    Earlier this week, Senator Paul held a call with Breonna Taylor’s aunt, Bianca Austin, Game Changers Executive Director Christopher 2X, and others fighting for criminal justice reform, where he reiterated his long-standing commitment to ensuring a just and fair system that respects all Americans’ rights, including the need to end no-knock warrants.

    Senator Paul’s Justice for Breonna Taylor Act would require federal law enforcement officers to provide notice of their authority and purpose before they could execute a warrant, and it would require the same of any state or local law enforcement agency that receives funds from the Department of Justice.

    During his time in Congress, Senator Paul has reached across the aisle and worked with both parties to achieve needed change, sponsoring or cosponsoring over 20 pieces of legislation.

    Paired with Amash's bill to end qualified immunity, and this could really amount to something.

    I'm sorta wondering where the Federal Government derives the authority to direct the actions of local police departments regarding things like warrant execution? Congress should be changing federal statutes about things like the War on Drugs and the militarizing of police, which is what leads to things like no-knock warrants, not creating new statutes that further usurp state and local control.

    This push for Congress to "do something", whether Rand introduces it or not, looks like more federalization of LEO, not less.
