I need to research more about these no-knock warrants.

Actually, if you zoom in, you'll see that Vermont (my home state :)
and Maine are also free of any incidents. "Live Free Or Die" New
Hampshire has one incident, but it turned out that no-knock warrants
are illegal in New Hampshire, and the police department got fined a
large amount. Not the result I would have preferred, but at least I
know that they're illegal and aren't as likely to happen now that the
police have gotten a slap on the wrist.

The really disturbing thing about all of this is that these are the
incidents that have gotten enough press for the Cato institute to
have heard about them. Given that one of the primary purposes of
these no-knock warrants is to intimidate people, via Gestapo-like
tactics, I'm sure there are many times as many incidents that go
unreported. In many cases, when a really bad incident happens and
gets press, you hear several other people from the community start
chiming in about incidents that happened earlier that they were too
scared to report.
