DON'T HOUSING HAVE A LIST OF THERE TENANT? BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAY I WOULD HAVE LET THEM DO A NO KNOCK SEARCH ON A 22 YEAR OLD PREGNANT GIRL WITH A 3 WEEK OLD N NEXT BEING WATCHED BY THE GRANDMOTHER. WHERE IS THE THREAT TO OFFICERS SAFETY? TO OK A NO KNOCK SEARCH

A: David's Answer: To do a "no knock" raid, the police generally would need a warrant. The issue in your case, given that the police presumably had a "no knock" warrant (although this would obviously need to be verified) is whether they mis-represented the facts to the Judge to get his/her approval for the no-knock warrant. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Civil Rights attorney for a full assessment.
