FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

The following statement can be attributed to ACLU-KY Policy Strategist Keturah Herron regarding the No-Knock Ordinance Before Louisville Metro Council:    

“The botched LMPD drug raid that killed Breonna Taylor dramatically illustrates the danger no-knock warrants pose to innocent lives. Today, the Metro Council is considering an ordinance that would make some changes to the no-knock warrant policy. A change in policy is not enough. The ACLU of Kentucky is demanding the Metro Council do more and eliminate use the use of no-knock warrants except in the most extreme circumstances. To do less would dishonor Breonna’s memory and leave Louisvillians – including members of law enforcement – at risk of serious injury or death.”
