Demonstrators hold up signs showing Breonna Taylor during a rally in her honor on the steps of the Kentucky State Capitol in Frankfort, Ky., Thursday, June 25, 2020.

It was a no-knock warrant that let to the police killing of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, adding to the nationwide protests against deadly police violence. The city of Louisville vowed to end the practice. Now the city of Cincinnati may do the same.

Council Member Chris Seelbach has introduced a motion that would ban no-knock warrants in the city of Cincinnati. Police Chief Elliot Isaac and Fraternal Order of Police President Dan Hils have said they support limiting no-knock warrants, but not an all-out ban.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss banning no-knock warrants is Cincinnati Council Member Chris Seelbach. And discussing how no-knock warrants are obtained is Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Tyrone Yates.
