New measure comes to life out of granny's death

You remember of course, the 92 year old granny Kathryn Johnston, who died in a police shootout that stemmed from a fraudulently obtained no-knock warrant. The good that has come of her untimely death is that a group of Georgia legislators are looking to clamp down on the warrants. Quote of the day on this comes from conservative Liberatian blogger McQ.
I agree wholeheartedly that such a warrant should be an exception, and the evidence for such a warrant should be exceptional as well.
Right on. It's time we put the "protect and serve" back into law enforcement. Knocking some sense into no-knock warrants would go a long way towards that end.
