Personally, I don't know how I'd react if I were no-knock raided.
I'd hope to make the right decision, but how can you when police no longer have a standard by which we may unambiguously differentiate them from criminal invaders? When police no longer knock, and instead bust in as formerly only a criminal would, how may we know the difference?
This is the whole point of warrants and due process (well, one of them anyway), and the police throw it out the door at their own peril.
And then, rather than accept the peril they've created, they insist that we have no right to defend ourselves against a criminal invader who later turns out to be a cop, but they have the right to murder us in our justified confusion and righteous but unwise attempts at self-defense.
Clearly, no-knock raids must cease. If there isn't a gun to a hostage's head, I want to see gentle knocks on doors by guys armed with a warrant, not AR-15s.
The police are intentionally placing their safety at odds with our rights. If their procedures or safety don't yield, then it's going to be our rights.
I, for one, am not willing to support that. The police need to be the ones to "sacrifice" to defend the American edifice this time. I put "sacrifice" in quotes because the authority they'd be relinquishing was already usurped against moral right, ethical propriety, and historical legal originalism.
