No-Knock Search Warrants are ILLEGAL in the STATE of Georgia

No-knock search warrants are ILLEGAL in the state of Georgia. Bills like SB45 and SB159 would change that for the first time in hundreds of years. Contact your elected officials and tell them to vote NO in the name of public safety and liberty!

CHAPTER 5 - SEARCHES AND SEIZURES
ARTICLE 2 - SEARCHES WITH WARRANTS
§ 17-5-27 - Use of force in execution of search warrant

  1. No- Knock police raids are extremely dangerous, both to the occupants of the dwelling and to the police themselves. Quite often the police, relying on incorrect intelligence, target the wrong house, thus placing the occupants therein in deadly danger. The innocent and unsuspecting homeowner, not knowing that it is the police who are crashing through his door in the dead of night, hastens to obtain his firearm for the purpose of defending himself from the invaders. The police then shoot him dead in a hail of gunfire. The life, once taken, cannot be brought back. The innocent victim is taken to the morgue. Later, his grieving family attends his funeral. The police are supposed to protect innocent life...not wantonly take it...
