A Kentucky grand jury has cleared current and former police officers in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor — indicting one ex-cop for “wantonly” firing shots into another apartment the night she died.

The 12 jurors returned three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree against Brett Hankison for shooting his gun into an apartment next to Taylor’s. Occupants of that residence were identified by their initials in charges — and none of them were “BT.”

None of the other officers involved in the raid were indicted.

According to Kentucky penal code, “a person is guilty of wanton endangerment in the first degree when, under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life, he wantonly engages in conduct which creates a substantial danger of death or serious physical injury to another person.”:snip:

Louisville: Protests Break Out, Gear Unloaded from U-Haul After No Murder Charges in Breonna Taylor Case

Protesters took to the streets of Louisville Wednesday after a Kentucky grand jury did not bring murder charges against any of the officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor.

A pair of videos shared to social media shows protesters unloaded shields and signs from a U-Haul truck. It is unclear who rented the truck. One shield read “BLM” in red, while another one had the phrase, “Protect Black Women.”:snip:

Kentucky AG: Reject Celebs Who Try to Tell You How to Feel After Breonna Taylor Ruling

 

In his press conference following the grand jury decision, Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron reported that the officers who showed up at Taylor's door in March "both knocked and announced their arrival at the apartment." In conclusion, he said, "the warrant was not served as a no knock warrant." When they couldn't get anyone to open the door, the decision was made to breach the door. While officer Brett Hankison was indicted, Cameron explained that, according to Kentucky law, the use of force by Officers Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove were justified because they were returning fire.

 

"I know that not everyone will be satisfied" with the decision today, Cameron acknowledged.

The AG added that there will be celebrities and activists who don't even live in Louisville who will "try to tell us how to feel." He urged residents to rejects those attempts.:snip:

As I understand it Breonna Taylor was living with a drug dealer, that was who the warrant was for.

 

Thing is there have recently been so many riots in so many places that its hard to keep up with all the particulars of every incident.
