Breonna Taylor’s Family Refuse to Go Away

The attorney for Breonna Taylor’s family says he won’t accept the findings of a Kentucky grand jury until the state’s attorney general releases the transcripts from the proceedings.

Civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump called on Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron to provide “transparency” to a grand jury ruling that failed to indict any of the police officers at the scene of Taylor’s shooting with charges specific to her death.

“If you want us to accept the results, then release the transcript so we can have transparency,” Crump said during a Friday morning news conference in Louisville, Kentucky.

Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician, was shot and killed by three plainclothes officers in March who were serving a warrant at her housein a drug raid. Early reports suggested that the officers had served a “no-knock” warrant and had shot Taylor during a shooting exchange with her boyfriend. But Cameron announced on Wednesday that officers had presented themselves and that Taylor’s boyfriend had fired on them first.

One of the three officers involved is being charged with three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment of Taylor’s neighbors.

Question: If the family’s attorney is so up on the law and thinks it’s OK to release grand jury details what does he have to say about the charges filed to date reference the boy friend who fired the first shot at the cops? During my 45 years as a cop at both the federal and state level a person such as the boy friend committing the acts he is known to have committed that night would be charged with attempted murder for his actions against the cops and murder in that her death resulted due to his illegal actions while armed. Amazing none of authorities nor media personalities have addressed these issues. Do you think we may be seeing cowards at work? Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired

If she hadn’t been dating and/or living with and enjoying the “Drug” life style none of this wouldn’t have happened in the first place. Although the search warrant was issued because of her other ( ex ) boyfriend, dealing drugs, which she enjoyed the proceeds of the illegal activity. Then to top it off the new boyfriend had and fired a weapon at the Police, the police would not have returned fire striking and killing her.

THE ANSEWERS THEY SHOULD BE SEEKING IS WHY SHE WAS WHERE SHE WAS AND WHY SHE WAS WITH A PERSON THAT FIRST SHOT AT THE POLICE, INSTEAD OF OBEYING THE POLICE. IT IS TIME PEOPLE WAS TAUGHT IF THE POLICE TELL YOU TO DO SOMETHING, DO IT, AND IF IT IS WRONG, TAKE THEM TO COURT, FOR IF YOU START SHOOTING AT THEM EXPECT TO BE KILLED. YOU SHOOT AT ME AND I HAVE A GUN, BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR I WILL BE SHOOTING BACK AND I WILL BE SHOOTING TO KILL.
