Outcome #3. As they charge into the house you get off a few rounds and manage to kill one of the unannounced officers. LEO gets off scot free for invading your home; you go to prison for life for the murder of a police officer, your family looses the house, lives in poverty for life, kids can't go to college and flip burgers the rest of their lives.
So, lets leave the decision of which police entries are unlawful in the hands of the suspects? Anyone else see a problem with this??
And before anyone lights me on fire, i'm not talking about the no-knock-wrong-house-oops warrants. I'm talking about the "other" 99.999999999999999% of them, that are served on legitimate criminal locations. Nice to know that the criminals get to do ANY sort of evaluating as to the legitimacy of police entry. I'll be following this...
The answer to this is to do away with no knock warrants. I may be wrong, but I think these warrants are used almost exclusively in drug cases and the police want to use these warrants to prevent the drug dealers from disposing of the evidence. What is wrong with staking out the house and waiting for the druggies to come out for there exercise and collar them then, on the street? Thus no need for a no knock warrant.
There have been multiple cases of these warrants being served at the wrong address with anywhere from relatively mild (if you consider guns in your face and being shoved to the floor of your home for no good reason other that the police can't read a house number) to absolutely tragic outcomes. Many people who favor these warrants say the these incidents are rare and they are correct. But if YOU are the one that gets shot or your dog or your wife or God forbid your child, will you then be willing to say, "but they are so rare"?
These warrants in my humble opinion are a gross violation of the fourth amendment.
