Protester Who Witnessed Police Shooting Wanted To Hold ‘Bad Protesters Accountable’ Thursday, Sep 24 2020 

'

Shortly before someone shot two police officers in downtown Louisville Wednesday night, a protester nearby heard loud bangs, which he thought came from devices police were using to break up a large crowd near Brook St. and Broadway.

Moments later, he heard the distinctive sound of gunshots. He started running down an alleyway. Then he saw a few men run past him, one of them still shooting, he said.

At that point, I was keeping an eye on them just because I noticed that he literally just shot the police, he said. He wasnt shooting in the air, he was shooting directly at them.

What’s Next For Policy Inspired By The Breonna Taylor Movement? Thursday, Sep 24 2020 

'

At his press conference closing the investigation into the death of Breonna Taylor, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Taylor’s death in a March police raid was “a tragedy.”

“And sometimes,” Cameron added, “the criminal law is not adequate to respond to a tragedy.”

For months protesters have called for the Louisville Metro Police Department officers involved in Taylor’s death — Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, Det. Myles Cosgrove, and former Det. Brett Hankison — to be charged with murder. A grand jury instead charged Hankison with three counts of wanton endangerment, a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

Here Are Some Of The Big Questions Remaining About The Breonna Taylor Case Thursday, Sep 24 2020 

'

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s long-awaited announcement regarding criminal charges in the fatal police shooting of Breonna Taylor offered some new information, but left many questions unanswered.

Cameron said Wednesday he would prosecute former Louisville Metro Police detective Brett Hankison on three counts of wanton endangerment. A Jefferson County grand jury recommended those charges, and none against Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Det. Myles Cosgrove, currently on administrative reassignment, who shot Taylor in a late-night raid on March 13.

Much of the new information Cameron provided was based on ballistics reports produced by FBI and Kentucky State Police Labs. He said the FBI’s lab determined Cosgrove fired the fatal shot, but the KSP analysis could not draw a conclusion in the matter. There was no conclusive evidence that any of Hankison’s bullets struck Taylor, he said.

Brett Hankison, Charged With Wanton Endangerment, Has History Of Misconduct Allegations Thursday, Sep 24 2020 

'

The only charges to come out of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s investigation into the police killing of Breonna Taylor are three wanton endangerment charges for one of the three officers involved in the shooting.

Former Louisville Metro Police Officer Brett Hankison has been charged with showing “extreme indifference to human life” by shooting into an apartment where three people lived in Taylor’s complex.

Hankison was one of the officers that went to Taylor’s apartment on March 13 to serve a search warrant. Taylor’s boyfriend said he believed they were intruders, so he fired one shot at them, striking Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly in the leg.

Breonna Taylor’s Neighbors Unsatisfied With Charges, Attorney Says Thursday, Sep 24 2020 

'

A lawyer for Breonna Taylors neighbors says they are pleased that a grand jury has decided to indict former Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) officer Brett Hankison for putting them in danger by blindly firing into their apartment during a raid on Taylors home. But they dont believe the charges go far enough.

There is some disappointment that everyone was not indicted, and theres also disappointment that no one is facing any charges, presently, for the death of Breonna Taylor, attorney Brandon Lawrence told WFPL News.

Hankisons charges are three counts of wanton endangerment, one for each of the three people in the apartment next to Taylors. So far no charges have been brought against the other two officers, or against anyone in Taylors death.
