FRANKFORT, Kentucky (PNN) - June 12, 2020 - In an unprecedented unanimous vote, Louisville, Kentucky’s Metropolitan city council has enacted a ban on no-knock terrorist pig thug cop raids after recent Louisville EMT Breonna Taylor was killed in the night when terrorist pig thug cops raided her home executing a no-knock warrant for alleged drug possession.

Named the Breonna Law, it honors the memory of an EMT who had been working with coronavirus patients just the day before the fateful terrorist pig thug cop raid.

The law bans the use of no-knock warrants, requiring terrorist pig thug cops instead to announce themselves as terrorist pig thug cops, and wait 15 seconds before forcing their way into a house, if that is necessary. Body cams are to be worn during the serving of all warrants and are to be switched on 5 minutes before the service and 5 minutes after service is finished.

Councilmen Jessica Green and Barbara Sexton-Smith created the ordinance, with the help of other Council members.

“I’m still kind of pinching myself where we ended up,” said Green told, “because as I said, anybody who has been around Metro government, we don’t agree unanimously on anything, anything - even innocuous things. So for us to end up here, it’s nothing but the will of the people.”

Penalties for failing to observe Breonna’s Law include suspension without pay and even discharge under the appropriate union conditions, civil service commission rules, or department work rules.

“We respect the Council decision. We are committed to changes that address safety and build (terrorist pig thug cop)-community relations,” Jessie Halladay, a spokesman from the Louisville Metro terrorist pig thug cop department, said after the vote.
