Article from For Liberty by Norm Leahy.
An angry mob accosted Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and his wife as they left President Donald Trump’s acceptance speech on the South Lawn of the White House. The protestors demanded Paul say something about Breonna Taylor, a Louisville resident whom police officers shot in her home.
What the mob either did not know or more likely could not be bothered to learn, was Paul introduced legislation to ban no-knock warrants like the one Louisville police used when they used a entered Taylor’s home.
The name of Paul’s bill: The Justice for Breonna Taylor Act” –
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.
