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

A lot of “police reform” ideas I come across strike me as token reformist bullshit or an effort to deflect the conversation toward liberal pet projects like expanding the welfare state, but eliminating no-knock warrants, like eliminating qualified immunity, might actually count for something.

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.
