Northam said: “These reforms have also reduced the militarization of police equipment, standardized law enforcement training requirements, and strengthened the disqualification procedures for police officers when needed.”

Experts say that during the execution of the anaesthesia order, thousands of attacks occur in the United States each year, such as the killing of Taylor. In this case, officials rely on dynamic entry to confuse and confuse residents.
During the drug wars of the 1980s and the increasing use of special weapons and tactical teams in narcotics operations, forced entry raids became commonplace.
Raids, especially those carried out late at night, are dangerous to both civilians and law enforcement personnel. In fact, in the Taylor case, a police officer was shot and wounded, resulting in subsequent police bullets and his death.
Experts say that this assault was aimed at people of color.
The 2014 American Civil Liberties Union report on the militarization of the police found that 42% of the SWAT team’s attacks were against blacks, while 12% of Hispanics were attacks.
The officers involved in the drug attack that failed in March told investigators that they repeatedly knocked on the door and declared themselves, and then rushed into Taylor’s front door with a hammer. After Taylor’s boyfriend first shot them and wounded an officer, they fired 32 rounds at the apartment.
Her boyfriend Kenneth Walker III told investigators that when the couple shouted, “Who is this?”, the person who knocked on the door late at night did not respond. According to Walker, he believed the intruder had broken the door, and he opened fire out of fear.
