Search Warrant | Video | Knock and Announce Shooting

Knock Announce Resident Killed
Florida Drug Defense Attorney has obtained video of a military-style entry into a home by drug / narcotics cops. A resident was shot and killed seconds after the Search Warrant entry. In Florida, we have discussed the knock and announce rule. You can read more here.

As we previously noted, the "Exclusionary Rule will be applied to violations of Florida's statutory knock-and-announce rule, according to an appellate court. The court found that a police officer violated Florida's knock-and-announce arrest statute where officer knocked and announced his presence, but failed to announce his purpose before entering motel room and arresting defendant. The court held that it was error to deny the defense motion to suppress evidence seized from motel room and statements made by defendant regarding that evidence."
