The Kentucky State Legislature is considering a bill that would restrict police use of no-knock warrants. SB 4, sponsored by Senate Pres. Robert Stivers would establish a more rigorous review process for these warrants, which allow officers to enter a residence without knocking, and restricts these warrants to be used only between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. They’re often used in drug busts. But after a botched no-knock warrant ended the life of Breonna Taylor, Kentucky legislators in both parties agree the law needs to be fixed. Two retired police officers: Sen. John Schickel and Sen. Danny Carroll are sponsoring the bill. Senate Pres. Stivers said the tragic death of Breonna Taylor in Louisville last March “Would have never taken place” if a law like this had existed.
