An unusual warrant. A pattern of questionable no-knock raids. A reporting thread that just kept going. “Broken Doors” is a new investigative podcast series from The Washington Post. Hosted by Jenn Abelson and Nicole Dungca.Read more:No-knock warrants allow police to force their way into people’s homes without warning. What happens when this aggressive police tactic becomes the rule, rather than the exception? “Broken Doors” is a new investigative podcast series about how no-knock warrants are deployed in the American justice system — and the consequences for communities when accountability is flawed at every level. Hosted by Jenn Abelson and Nicole Dungca.In the first episode of this series, sheriff’s deputies burst through the front door of a man’s home as he slept. He said they pointed a gun at his head and ransacked his home in search of drugs and cash. The no-knock search warrant they used was threadbare. But that wasn’t the worst of it.The six-episode series is out now wherever you get your podcasts. You can email the “Broken Doors” team with any tips or feedback at

Richard Thornton great interview!! Loved it! A question I’ve always pondered is what was Lee thinking about on 7/7/1865?? He reads about 4 relatively innocent people especially Lewis Powell die on the gallows, but Mr Lee the traitor gets to live out his life as a University president? What a fucking historical injustice.
