Think no knock-warrants are bad?

Police use JCB backhoe to ram into cocaine lords house.
That's right, a backhoe. They had to tear down the wall surrounding a multi-million house to swarm in.

Gotta give 'em Brittons credit: they got what they came for, seizing drugs, firearms and arresting criminals.
I think the use of a "mechanical digger" was appropriate in this came, but I certainly hope this does not become commonplace. Imagine the red tape if they'd get the address wrong ...

more from the BBC.

No knock warrants have a place. It is a real narrow place though.
