Legal Team for Family of Amir Locke Releases Statement on “Amir Locke End Deadly No-Knock Warrants Act”
Nationally renowned civil rights attorneys Ben Crump, Jeff Storms, and Antonio Romanucci have released the following statement on the proposed “Amir Locke End Deadly No-Knock Warrants Act,” which was introduced today by U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar.
“We join the Locke family in applauding U.S. Rep. Omar for introducing this critically important bill. There is no doubt that no-knock warrants are a tragic and devastating failure of policy – a policy that directly led to the deaths of Amir Locke, Breonna Taylor and countless other Black and Brown people throughout the country for the past several decades. While the bill is not a complete ban on no-knock warrants, which is the ultimate goal, it is a significant step forward. We implore other members of Congress to champion this life-saving cause and pass this legislation to protect the lives and safety of those they swore an oath to serve.”
