Over the past 48 hours, we’ve learned information about the murder of Breonna Taylor that changes everything. Breonna was a 26-year-old EMT who was killed while Louisville Metro Police executed a no-knock warrant on her apartment.
Newly obtained body-camera footage of the murder raises a number of questions, concerns and accusations. A number of police policies were violated, one of the most damning being officer Brett Hankison re-entering the scene after shooting into Breonna’s home.
The release of the body-cam footage is not the only earth-shattering piece of news we’ve learned within the past two days.
A member of the grand jury on Breonna’s case has now filed a suit demanding that the transcript of the jury deliberations be released, inferring that the jury was never given the option to press charges against the officers.
In light of this, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron released a statement essentially admitting that he did nothing to recommend charges against the officers to the grand jury.
On today’s episode of The Breakdown, Shaun unpacks and explains the grave importance of these findings and what they mean for the future of Breonna Taylor’s case.
