(Courier-Journal)   On the day of the Grand Jury dismissal, since people keep saying Breonna Taylor was shot in bed (she wasn't) or that Kenny Walker ordered drugs delivered to the house (he didn't), here's a good fact-check rundown of the case   (courier-journal.com) divider line

How long did the police wait before calling for an ambulance?

Funny how much easier it is to control the narrative about what happened when you don't leave any survivors

They had no reason to be there.

Yep. Too bad for some it's a cop can do no wrong to "those people".
 
2020-09-23 10:08:49 PM  
Claim: The cops had no right to execute the warrant in the first place.

True.
 
2020-09-23 10:09:18 PM  
The facts are:

1) The cops invaded a house.
2) One of the people in that house fired at the cops because he didn't know it was the cops and shot a cop in the leg
3) The cops fired back at the guy but instead killed a totally innocent woman and shot some rounds into nearby apartments for giggles.
4) Facts 1-3 are totally fine and there is no societal change or punishment required.

That's the problem.  It's possible for a cop to get shot and a bystander to get killed and other bystanders almost get killed and yet in terms of charges, everyone acted basically as they should have.

the grand jurors indicted Hankison alone on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment for shots that went into a neighbor's apartment where three people were home.

Murder a black woman in her own home and only get charged for the shots that miss.

A subsequent search of Taylor's apartment found no drugs.

So not just murder, pointless murder.

She died in her hallway, not her bed, therefore the cops were right and everyone needs to apologize to them.

This is what some idiots think.
 
2020-09-23 10:15:00 PM  
Since then, it has been widely reported, including in The Courier Journal, that Taylor was shot eight times.
Taylor's official cause of death, as determined by the investigation, was six gunshot wounds to the body.


Oh, f*ck you.  F*ck you right in the f*cking face.

Today I learned getting out of bed is worthy of execution, warrants for no knock assaults can be based on hearsay evidence, Breonna was shot 6 times not 8 so it was a justified execution, and the officers involved in the attack didn't have body cameras because going snatch and grab style to a person's home w/ guns drawn is one of those times you shouldn't have body cameras on.

/ Go fark off, a jury should be deciding this in open court. But her family will never have their day in court.

I flagged you as a racist apologist a lomg time ago and it still holds

Police killed an innocent woman, without warning, in her own home, where they had no place being. These clarifications dont change that basic fact.

Walker: She died in her hallway, not her bed, therefore the cops were right and everyone needs to apologize to them.

Nope, it's for the people screaming "She was sleeping in her bed!".

Normally around here, facts matter. No, she shouldn't have died. But spreading misinformation is no better than the people claiming that she was a drug dealer. Misinformation is misinformation, no matter who is spreading it.

That's the problem.  It's possible for a cop to get shot and a bystander to get killed and other bystanders almost get killed and yet in terms of charges, everyone acted basically as they should have.


The great outrage here is not just that the cops brutally murdered Breonna Taylor, but that the law permits and even incentivizes such behavior.  I understand the desire to see them arrested and charged, but that can't happen because as horrible as their actions were, what they did isn't actually against the law.  It's the law itself that needs to be fixed.

This why you don't trust anyone going on about the importance of "law and order".  The law is a tool only to be respected when it works for justice.  No law should be respected when it permits and rewards injustice.  A demand for "law and order" regardless of what the law says is a demand for nothing less than submission to the state, aka fascism.
 
2020-09-23 10:22:06 PM  
If their behaviour was criminal, they should all be arrested and tried.

If their behaviour was acceptable in the framework of the current system, the whole system needs to be burned to the ground and every cop and cop-murder-enabler fired.

I don't see any other options.

One cop guilty on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment because his recklessness could have killed somebody seems pretty unfair to the one person who didn't know who killed her because the there is no evidence police announced their presence.

You left out the fact that her ex boyfriend who frequented said house was a drug dealer and that she had been questioned previously both for his drug crimes as well as on suspicion of murder. He had been spotted dealing out of the apartment complex and she had been found to be with him near drug deals via cell phone tracking. The cops were there to bust her as a knowing accomplice to his drug dealing and got more than they bargained for when her new boyfriend started shooting at them.

Moral of the story: don't hang out with drug dealing murderers and you'll probably live longer.

I'm sure being murdered by six cop bullets instead of eight means all the world of difference to the murdered woman.

There are falsified police reports and falsified warrant requests, but yeah...wanton negligence is the only crime that happened here.

All of which does not support lying to obtain a warrant. Which you know.

It may be misinformation, but it's not really important.  If someone says "she was murdered in her bed" versus "she was murdered in the hallway", the important part of those statements is that she was murdered, not the location of the murder.  Being pedantic about an unimportant fact like that dimishes the importance of the overwhelming case that the cops committed murder.

So you should just know when people barge in unannounced in plan clothes to not shoot them, because.

This still has never been addressed, just that she deserves to die by relation.

No drugs were found, no announcement of being the police were made....... what were they expecting to do exactly.  In plains clothes apparently, knock in the door and everyone just revolves around them magically because?  In the USA with guns everywhere?

The whole 'she was involved in drugs' comes from two things. She used to date the guy the cops were after, and he lied after she was dead and said she held his money.

If you were on the hook for thousands in drug money, blaming its disappearance on a dead lady is not the dumbest plan I've heard.

The cops were there to bust her?

Citation farking needed.

The cops were there to serve a warrant on someone they already had in custody.
 
2020-09-23 10:42:56 PM  
Further proof that No-knock warrants should only be used in the most extreme of circumstances.

The cops were in street clothes, rolled up in an unmarked car, and started pounding on someone's door in the middle of the night, then broke it down. How did they not expect to get shot at, especially in a state like Kentucky? Try that shiat out in the sticks, where farmers answer the door with a shotgun blast after midnight.

Or did they do it like this just because if they tried to do it during the daytime, they might have had a uniformed officer around wearing a body camera?
 
2020-09-23 10:45:06 PM  
Detective Joshua Jaynes, who obtained the search warrant for Taylor's apartment, has also been reassigned by LMPD leadership.

Maybe the LMPD should FIRE detectives who lie on search warrants instead of just re-assigning them.

Do you think breaking and entering deserves a death sentence?
