Imani Arrington started this petition to Los Angeles Police Department

No knock raids have allowed law enforcement to enter a property without immediate prior notification of the residents, such as by knocking or ringing a doorbell. And seen as of recent, these raids have led to the deaths of people in their own homes, for example, Breonna Taylor. It would seem as though our current police forces are not properly trained for the stress of their jobs. Why perform the raid if you are just going to shoot first and ask questions later? That is more of execution than a lawful raid. This petition is not to make all raids illegal, but instead just no-knock raids.

By making these raids illegal we can ensure the safety of both the residents and the police. Residents will have the opportunity to make themselves a non-threat before the police even enter. The police can then enter with some peace of mind that the resident is being compliant with them, so there is no need for lethal force. Again, this can save the lives of many residents, and slightly ease the stress of the officer's jobs.
