Uh Oh - Might be About to Go Down - Protestors Hit The Streets Unhappy With Breonna Taylor Decision

Uh Oh - Might be About to Go Down - Protestors Hit The Streets Unhappy With Breonna Taylor Decision
Posted By: Will Moss on September 23, 2020

A grand jury didn’t charge any officers with **** Ms. Taylor in her Louisville apartment. A former officer, accused of firing recklessly, was indicted on three counts of ‘wanton endangerment.’

Right Now

Police began arresting protesters in Louisville hours before a 9 p.m. curfew, and other cities were bracing for demonstrations.

The two officers who shot Ms. Taylor were not charged.

A grand jury indicted a former Louisville police detective on Wednesday for endangering Breonna Taylor’s neighbors by recklessly firing his gun during a raid on her apartment in March. No officer was charged with **** Ms. Taylor.

Grand jurors indicted Brett Hankison, the former detective, on three counts of “wanton endangerment,” saying he had threatened three people’s lives by firing bullets that traveled through Ms. Taylor’s apartment and into theirs. A pregnant woman, her husband and their 5-year-old child were asleep in that apartment, and the bullets shattered a glass door but did not harm the couple and their child.

Mr. Hankison had fired into the sliding glass patio door and window of Ms.



Taylor’s apartment building, both of which were covered with blinds, in violation of a department policy that requires officers to have a line of sight. He is the only one of the three officers who fired their weapons who was dismissed from the force, with a termination letter stating that he showed “an extreme indifference to the value of human life.”

In a news conference following the announcement of the grand jury’s decision, Kentucky’s attorney general, Daniel Cameron, said he knew that some people would not be satisfied.


“The decision before my office is not to decide if the loss of Breonna Taylor’s life was a tragedy — the answer to that question is unequivocally yes,” Mr. Cameron said.

He later added: “If we simply act on outrage, there is no justice — mob justice is not justice. Justice sought by **** is not justice. It just becomes revenge.”

The decision came after more than 100 days of protests and a monthslong **** into the death of Ms. Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency room technician who was shot at least five times in the hallway of her apartment by officers executing a search warrant.

Because the officers did not shoot first — it was the young woman’s boyfriend who opened fire, striking one officer in the leg; he has said he mistook the police for intruders — many legal experts had thought it unlikely the officers would be indicted in her death.
