Law professor Rachel Moran commented for KARE 11 News on the decision not to charge the officer who killed Amir Locke and Minneapolis' no-knock warrant policy.

From the article: This time, says University of St. Thomas law professor Rachel Moran, the policy largely does what it says.

"This is an actual ban on no-knock warrants," said Moran, who provided input on the policy change, but did not have a role in the final decision. "There are still people who will critique this policy and I am one of them."

Moran says the change could have gone farther to protect people from danger posed by quick-knock warrants, but says the new policy still might have helped prevent Locke's death, if it had previously been in place.
