Bou Bou's Law

Monday at 10:45am There will be a a press conference in room 203, of the Coverdell Legislative Office Building(CLOB) We will be delivering a petition signed by 40,000 people who want to see an end to No Knock Warrants in their current form. We will demand that Georgia law makers pass SB 45, "Bou Bou's Law" -SB 45 (Fort, 39th) – “Bou Bou’s Law ” This legislation would restrict no-knock warrants to situations where the affidavit or testimony supporting the warrant establishes by probable cause that if an officer were to knock and announce identity and purpose before entry, such act of knocking and announcing would likely pose a significant and imminent danger to human life or imminent danger of evidence being destroyed. WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? Just this past year in Habersham, Georgia law enforcement used a “No Knock” warrant to storm an innocent family’s dwelling and in the process tossed a concussion grenade into Baby Bounkham "Bou Bou" Phonesavanh crib. This ended up almost claiming the baby’s life, blowing his face off. In 2006 police used a “No Knock” warrant to break down the door of 92-yearold Atlanta resident Kathryn Jonhston and fired 39 shots at her, killing her. Later they planted drugs on her to justify the horrendous act. Followed by a Committee Hearing @ 3:00PM in room 307 of the Legislative Office Building.
