Houston Police To Stop “No Knock” Warrants After Deadly Raid

(Houston, TX-AP) — Houston’s police chief says they’ll no long serve “no knock” search warrants after a married couple was killed in a botched raid. Police Chief Art Acevedo said during a town hall meeting Monday that no-knock warrants are “going to go away,” and will not be used to nab people suspected of using a small amount of drugs.
