At the beginning of February, a gruesome crime shook South Florida: a suspect in a child pornography case opened fire on 5 FBI agents who had come to deliver a search warrant.
Agents Daniel Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger were killed in the attack, and 2 of their colleagues sent to the hospital. The shooter killed himself after a standoff.
Podcaster Katrina Daniel just released an episode exploring the tragedy. She invited Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen attorney Andrew Yaffa and Miami homicide detective Jeff Lewis to join her coverage of the event. Years ago, Attorney Yaffa fought for the family of a Broward Sheriff’s Deputy who was killed while serving a warrant. The lawsuit led to a new policy meant to keep law enforcement officers safer.
Says Attorney Yaffa on the issue, “We thought, and we hoped, that in addition to the monetary result that we got for the family, we had made it safer for every other police officer out there because they passed a new rule that all forced entries would be done by SWAT so that nobody else had to lose their lives.” Listen to the episode to learn more about Attorney Yaffa’s views and legal knowledge on the subject.
