Minneapolis City officials are learning more about no-knock warrants in the aftermath of Minneapolis police officer Mark Hanneman shooting and killing Amir Locke last week. At a council meeting Monday, high-profile civil rights attorney Ben Crump told the council that no-knock warrants are often “high-risk, low reward.”
“No knock warrants create chaotic, confusing circumstances that put everyone present at risk and those people are disproportionately marginalized people of color.”
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey put a moratorium on the use of no-knock warrants after a SWAT team search led to Locke’s shooting. State House DFLers are planning to unveil a plan to ban no knock warrants statewide (12:30 pm).
