by Louisville Police Department during a no-knock warrant was gut-wrenching. And, yes, I wrote murder although charges have yet to be filed against those officers because that’s what it was. No-knock warrants are dangerous, even more so when officers conducting the warrant have not done their homework on the target of the warrant.
