Did Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron think Breonna Taylor’s life mattered?
Reported on news sources, Daniel admitted he never recommended the grand jury to indict two of the cops involved in the murder of Breonna Taylor. TMZ reports Daniel presented the case to the grand jury and said that the officers were “fully justified in firing their weapons because Breonna’s boyfriend had fired first at them.” Daniel said,
“Our recommendation is that [officers] Jonathan Mattingly and Myles Cosgrove were justified in their acts and their conduct.”
Daniel also told the grand jury a witness “heard the police announce themselves before the raid,” but 12 other witnesses say they did NOT hear the cops announce themselves. Daniel didn’t recommend manslaughter charges and the police didn’t provide any medical assistance to Breonna after they killed her in cold blood, which technically is manslaughter as the term is defined as reckless disregard for human life.
Breonna’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, was protecting Breonna when he thought intruders entered his home. The cops were in plain clothes, went to the WRONG house, and according to Kenneth, never knocked or announced themselves. Kenneth is also a licensed gun owner and didn’t break any law under the stand your ground rule. The first shot he fired was a warning shot. Kenneth has since filed a lawsuit against the Louisville PD.
The three cops fired 32 bullets, striking and killing Breonna, but only one former officer, Brett Hanikson, was ultimately charged for putting the neighbors in danger. Detective Myles Cosgrove is the officer that fired the shots that took Breonna’s life, he’s currently crowdfunding money to retire.
