ALEC in Daily Caller: ‘Double-Edged Sword’ No-Knock Raids Often Raise Risk To Police And Civilians
"I think these stories, these tragedies, really highlight how inherently dangerous these no-knock raids can be."
Nino Marchese, ALEC Criminal Justice Task Force Director and author of the new report, No-Knock Raids: Examining the Risk, Controversy and Constitutionality, is featured in a Daily Caller story looking at the unintended consequences of these raids and what states are doing to protect members of law enforcement and civilians.
“Maybe with their culture and other factors that make their states unique, that is the best solution, to ban them at a state level, but maybe for other states that’s not the best solution,” Marchese told the Daily Caller News Foundation. He said legislators should revisit the practice and examine how to improve it.
“I think these stories, these tragedies, really highlight how inherently dangerous these no-knock raids can be,” Marchese told the DCNF. “We wanted to educate legislators on the issue, since it is up-and-coming, and states and local governments are looking to revisit the practice.”
