"No-knock" search warrants, (like the one used in Breonna Taylor's murder) which allow police to force their way into a home with the element of surprise, have attracted criticism since the height of the "war on drugs" in the 1980s and 90s. But it wasn't until this year that the death of Breonna Taylor galvanized that criticism into a national movement to ban the raids. Taylor was shot to death in her own apartment during a questionable drug raid by Louisville police.
