A no knock warrant is issued / used when there is a high level risk of meeting deadly resistance. However when they enter they are supposed to be
giving verbal commands and announcing there presence. A no knock warrant is just that, no knocking on the door but forceful entry unannounced.
Failure to do so can result in what occurred in Texas. A homeowner thinking armed intruders are entering the house. Given they were there for a
relative tells me the homeowner probably knew trouble was going to follow.
It certainly is different but somewhat understandable. Hopefully this stays at the Texas court level. If it hits the federal level and survives its
going to start impacting agencies outside of Texas.
This would be whats called case law that law enforcement does not want to create.
