I don't particularly give a fuck what crime someone committed, everyone should shoot someone who locks in their door without any notification. it's perfectly reasonable that if someone kicks your door down, if you're armed, you can shoot them. just because police have a uniform and a badge doesn't mean they get to just kick someone's door in with impunity because they're selling drugs or some petty crime. I respect police officers but no knock raids are a violation of due process. a warrant already grants you the right to go into a residence to look for evidence of a crime being committed. we have a hyper militarized police force but they're afraid of getting into a gun fight over drug crimes? this is America not Iraq, knock on the fuckin door if you don't want to get shot like civilized people.

No knocks are retarded. And as much as I hate heroin, the selling of it as shitty as it is, is not violent.

All of you protesting about lack of due process seem to ignore that a no-knock warrant was granted by a judge. That is the process and followed to the letter. Another instance of corrupt police in action should be the protest.

No-knocks are more dangerous for innocents, suspect, and officers.

So having guns in the house didn't work out so well this time. If he hadn't started shooting he and his wife might still be alive.
