Six months after its filing, Breonna's Law, HB 21, has been assigned to the House Judiciary Committee. I'm writing today to express my support for HB 21 and demand a hearing in the Judiciary Committee. Not only do we need to ban no knock warrants, but we need greater accountability for police officers who are executing warrants and those who become involved in deadly incidents. HB 21 allows for both restrictions on no knock warrants and accountability. Other states and cities have already passed mirror legislation similar to HB 21. It is time for the Commonwealth to lead in this effort.
We need a hearing on HB 21 NOW!
