|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.”
