Four Officers Charged In Connection With Breonna Taylor’s Death

by News Update

Nearly two and a half years after Breonna Taylor died in a hail of police gunfire during a botched drug raid, federal prosecutors charged four current and former Louisville police officers in connection with her death. Attorney General Merrick Garland accused three of the officers of lying to a judge to get the search warrant. Prosecutors say the officers tried to cover up their actions afterwards with two of them meeting one night and “agreeing to tell investigators a false story.”

"They violated her constitutional rights as an American citizen." – Lawyer …
Well, murder is more than that. You don't need to be an American to have a right to not be killed.

These policemen who shot this woman should be lynched after serving 20 mandatory years in Rykers.

Maybe those cops will get no bail I mean that's what all the other criminals are getting off with no bail why not the cops. Democrats once again right before election time have it asked backwards this ought to help them big going into the midterms LOL I'm being sarcastic

I prayed on this case and I know Justice was coming thank you Lord people think they can walk around here and do wrong. But it will come back I knowed in my heart they was wrong when they went in that young lady apartment it just did not sit in my soul. Justice for Brianna Taylor and Justice will come for others that they killed and think they going to get away with it you watch what I tell you.

Rouge Campos August 5, 2022 - 8:54 AM

So she gets caught with drugs dealers n crap but that's all this is bs….

Panda Young August 5, 2022 - 8:56 AM

What does all this demonstrate, prove and show? It demonstrates, proves and shows police officers are malevolent liars, manipulators and con artist, not to mention cowards, that CANNOT be trusted on any level. We have criminal liars patrolling our streets. Very scary. The police views the public as their enemy. We cannot trust law enforcement because they cannot even trust themselves. Most, not all, law enforcement are criminals, without a moral compass, who just never got caught. Don not trust a man or woman who are called police because it may cost you your life.

Lisa Allen August 5, 2022 - 8:56 AM

This is awesome. The universe is at it's best

The mother she already have deserved Justice already thanks to serve that at their purpose the right to do is for to do their job seriously and to have responsibility and the focus that are of anything happens that everywhere to America and that's the truth anyway everyone because I told you so already officers are not telling the truth and especially that are cheap officers have no responsibility it's like they cannot control of the temple or even that are what they're doing because everyone need to focus if they do not focus then they will already crossing the line especially the officers where everyone is like a Deja Vu again that I told you so but the mother she already have her justice already and but the pain that I bet she got is very heartbreaking and especially that her future and her daughter that she she already lost her kind of her child and this is what happens officers that they cannot even to tell the truth but don't worry everyone thanks to that Washington they say right there they're already have responsibility and focused is to write study for telling the truth and now that are for officers it's going to be like maximum prison for life

Luis Romero August 5, 2022 - 9:32 AM
