Charges Announced in Breonna Taylor Killing

Make no mistake… Louisville was going to burn irrespective of what the charges were or were not. On the merits, the charges appear to be appropriate.

One of three Louisville police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor was indicted by Kentucky  grand jury on Wednesday, following a six-month investigation into the case that sparked mass protests nationwide.

Jefferson County Circuit Judge Annie O’Connell read the grand jury’s decision in open court on Wednesday afternoon, charging fired detective Brett Hankison with three counts of wanton endangerment in connection to the police raid on the night of March 13.

Sgt Jonathan Mattingly, Detective Myles Cosgrove, who were also present at the time of Taylor’s death, were not charged.

    I disagree with the charges. If the boyfriend shot first, and I don’t believe the boyfriend when he says the cops didn’t announce themselves, and the cops fired back, I don’t see how the cop was charged.

    Is jjf on his way to Louisville to participate in the rioting and looting
    Or he is dressed up in his cheerleading uniform and pom poms in his hand cheering on the rioters and looters?

    @Mar. Police chief says evidence shows and witness in adjoining apartment heard cops knocked and identify themselves, even though they had a no-knock warrant. Which is why no charges. The third cop charged was probably outed by the other two officers; that guy was basically playing backup and ripped off ten wild shots into the apartment next door. Hence the “wanton endangerment”.

    So, if climate change is real, then why are the liberal rioters and looters starting fires in Louisville and other large cities?
