So you think it's OK for cops to murder people.
Is it only OK if those people are black? Or is anybody fair game?

No-knock raids should never happen, but the AG said the cops did announce themselves.

According to one witness who changed their story at least twice. Twelve others maintain they heard nothing until shots rang out.

However, everybody agrees the cops did, in fact, knock several times.  Therefore, this wasn't actually a No Knock raid (no matter what the paperwork said), but functioned as if it was a normal warrant.  Banning no knock warrants would do nothing to prevent this scenario in the future.

1. Cops knock.  They may (or may not) have shouted "Police!" at this point.
2. Taylor and her boyfriend hear the knocking (but not "Police!") and get out of bed.  Her boyfriend grabs his gun.
3. The two of them are in the hallway together when the cops stop knocking and start breaking down the door.
4. Taylor's boyfriend fires one shot at the cops, thinking they are burglars.
5. Two of the cops fire back in the direction of the couple, where they were fired upon.  Taylor gets hit six times.
6. The third cops flips the fark out, runs outside, and fires at a random window in the apartment.  His bullets go nowhere near the couple but go through the window, into the wall, and into another apartment.

The first two cops were taking fire and fired in the direction they took the fire.  Therefore, self defense, no charges.  Basically, both the cops and Taylor's boyfriend had valid self defense claims.  These cops should have been fired or disciplined for not being more clear in announcing they were police, but not doing that probably isn't criminal (but did trigger the shootout).

The third cop fired in a random direction and could have hit somebody else.  Therefore, he was fired from his job and was charged with the "wonton" charge.

The fact that the warrant probably wasn't valid in the first place doesn't matter in the criminal case because none of the cops on the scene were involved with writing it up; they were just given a task to do by others with limited (and incorrect) information.


If you follow Fark's Homeowner with a Gun Rule, Taylor's boyfriend had a duty to retreat and should have made positive identification of the intruders first, no, he should have been shot at first - then and only then would he have been justified in defending himself against the home invaders. Oh, they're cops? Cue hypocrisy statement.

Can you imagine being such a weak ejaculation of a man that your problem with this case is a man firing on officers kicking down a door at 6 AM serving a warrant at the wrong address, while his naked 25 year old girlfriend stood next to him?


Actually it was just after midnight.  They were at the right address.  And she wasn't standing next to him naked.

But you're obviously well informed.

Isn't that exactly what happened in Texas last year? A cop lied to get a no-knock warrant, and himself and a few other cops got shot along with two people in the home being killed. I'm still sad the guy in the house only had a revolver. Think what he could've done to those cops with a rifle.

There's a vast difference between "announce" and "identify". If you're rich and white, you get "identify", where they come to your door and serve the search warrant. If you're poor or black you get "announce" after they kick down your door and a few seconds before they shoot you. It's a major distinction often lost on those who will naturally get the "identify" option by virtue of their station in life.

Interesting.

They had a warrant, so as the law is currently written they did have legal right to enter and execute the warrant.  Their method is what's being debated.  If he had no idea who they were because he couldn't hear their announcement that's a huge problem.  And why I'm opposed to no-knock warrants.

They also lied to obtain the warrant. It kind of renders it a useless piece of paper, even if "legitimate"

From what I'm reading I wouldn't say he lied.  But his justification for the warrant was really farking thin.  It amounts to Walker was previously charged for drugs, the cops saw him at her apartment, so it must be full of drugs and drug money.  Oh and he once got a package delivered to her apartment that the cops have no idea what it was so it must have been drugs.

And the fact that the judge approved 5 warrants in 12 minutes tells me she didn't scrutinize them much if at all.  If I were the judge I would have wanted more than that for at least that one.


So this is legitimate discussion.  (Not the "all cops are bad, racist, etc.")  I've read that the warrant was kind of sketchy, but haven't had time to get the details.  The reason I'm so harsh on the "all cops are bad" crowd is that they accomplish nothing.  Taking a hard look on how warrants are approved and (more importantly) executed would be a good thing.  And, as I've said repeatedly in the past, qualified immunity needs to be rolled back.  Rioting is counter-productive.

So why don't liberals tout the importance of the 2nd like they should? Stop letting right wingers have the monopoly on gun ownership.

Because that would mean the left was wrong about something. That doesn't get many likes on Twitter.

I'm anti-right wing as they get, myself. That being said, it's useless complain about the hypocrisy of right wingers in relation to guns, or anything else in general. Hypocrisy is the essence of conservative politics in general, so if you're expecting them to have strong beliefs on a topic, you're a sucker. They will twist and bend their entire belief system around on the basis of stigginit it to the libs, even if it contradicted what they said 30 seconds ago.

I am right-wing and will be voting for Trump. I just hope after everything that has happened in 2020 that gun control is dead.


Take your gun and shove it up your ass, traitor.

AwfulObject: A mistaken killing is a manslaughter.  That's the charge they should have gotten. Just because your the tip of the sword doesn't excuse your part in the cut - you're part of the apparatus that's supposed to execute the collective will of the people.


I'm still hesitant on this part.  I do know these guys get into a room and plan.  They (usually) don't just grab guns and bust a door down.  They talk about who they're looking for and what they're looking for and all the other details.
Someone got up in front of that room with everyone involved and lazily or negligently or maliciously got important details wrong, and now people - including two cops last night - are hurt or dead.
That's a person who should be working on a fishing boat a thousand miles away to avoid investigation and jailtime.  But apparently he has nothing to worry about.
I guess in your metaphor, I'd rather see the handle of the sword in jail.

Kenneth Walker, the boyfriend, had a strong enough self-defense case that they dropped charges against him. However, the police were still serving a lawful warrant when they returned fire. That third idiot, who actually got indicted, didn't hit anything. The killing rounds were fired by the other two, one of which had just been shot himself.

I believe that Kenneth Walker believed the cops were intruders. But the cops didn't know that. Shooting back, in that situation, seems more than reasonable.

I just don't see how this would be a murder case and considering that no one would give a flying fark about any of this had Breonna Taylor been anything but black, the whole thing reeks of agenda and deliberate manipulation.

And I farking hate cops most of the time.

Just don't switch positions if D's put 2 and 2 together and start buying guns.
The NRA doesn't like liberals owning guns for damn sure.

Begoggle: ElecricalPast: Begoggle: vestona22: Was he shot at first?  'Cause the police involved in the Breonna Taylor shooting were shot at first by her boyfriend.  Or are we not allowed to mention that?

You can lie about whatever you want, there's no law against that.

I fail to see the lie here...
The boyfriend admitted to shooting first.
He shot first because he thought someone was breaking into his house in the middle of the night.

Yes - he shot first. He said so. No lie there.

Oh that's a little more information.
He shot at some cops who were breaking into his home and had no right to do so.
Interesting.

If we're also allowed to mention that no-knock warrants should NOT be a thing in this country and the whole incident happened because the police broke into someone's house in the dead of night without identifying themselves first because in the grand scheme of all things American, a woman's life isn't nearly as important as not allowing drug dealers the time to flush their drugs down the toilet.

According to the DA, there was a knock.

Why is it that people with alternative opinions always preface their statements with "I have always been in support of X", and then say things that are definitely not in support of X?  Is this the new "I'm not racist, but..."?

The weirdest thing about your kind is the only way you can discuss or debate is by taking what other people said, change a couple of words, then echo it back. Did you learn from the Jack Chick School of Discussion?

OK so we've decided that SOME people want cops to kill and hurt black people exclusively.
I think they probably would be happy with the cops hurting other groups too, such as gay people or any other religion or race than they are.

No-knock raids should never happen, but the AG said the cops did announce themselves.


Well then.. As long as they said (pinky swear) they announced themselves it's all good.
