None of the officers involved with Breonna Taylor’s death in Louisville, Kentucky during a raid on her home were charged specifically for her death. One of the officers, Brett Hankinson, was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment for shooting into nearby apartments, narrowly missing a family inside one of them. Evidence suggests that none of Hankinson’s bullets hit Breonna Taylor. The shooting of Taylor was ruled justified due to her boyfriend firing at the officers first.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron did an excellent job breaking down all of the facts of the case in a compassionate manner. The first fact to understand is that Breonna Taylor’s apartment was at the center of a drug raid. A no-knock search warrant was issued for her apartment but the police chose to knock and announce themselves. A nearby witness says that the police did, in fact, knock and announce. The boyfriend, who admits to shooting at the police first, says the police knocked but did not announce themselves.
Although the “boyfriend” and police have differing views of the event, none of their accounts include the widely believed point of view that there was a no-knock raid in which police entered the home and killed Breonna Taylor. The media, as well as leftist politicians, have been circulating the false “no-knock” story. The police knocked, announced, were fired upon, fired back, and unfortunately that resulted in the death of Breonna Taylor. She was not laying in her bed, she was awake and standing in the hallway next to her boyfriend.
The false “no-knock” narrative parroted by mainstream media and liberal extremist politicians has created a dangerous environment. Marxist and subversive groups like Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA have already descended upon Louisville, Kentucky which is where the Breonna Taylor incident happened.
Kentucky National Guard has already been activated. There is also a citywide curfew from 9pm to 6:30am with the exception of those going to work and religious services. A video circulating on Twitter shows ANTIFA-type rioters pulling protest signs out of a UHAUL van. It is not quite clear where the van came from or who paid for the van or the signs. Whatever the case may be, all of the officers involved with the Breonna Taylor case and their families have been moved out of the area for their own safety.
