The Daily Mail reports that one police officer involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor has been charged with ‘wanton endangerment.’ Kentucky detective, Brett Hankison has been charged in the death of Breonna Taylor by a grand jury. The grand jury did not charge the other two officers involved in the shooting.
Breonna Taylor was 26 when she was shot and killed in her home shortly after three officers executed a no-knock warrant at her home address. Her boyfriend, who was the subject of the warrant, fired at the officers first. The officers returned fire, accidentally hitting Breonna Taylor 5-times.
The state of Kentucky has worked overtime this week, preparing buildings that are susceptible to attack by BLM rioters. The Kentucky State Police and National guard are active and alert as the state expects to see looting and riots in the wake of the news.
The Mayor of Lousiville, Kentucky, Greg Fischer, announces that he will be implementing a curfew from 9:00 pm to 6:30 am for the next 72 hours in hopes that it will stop violence expected after the decision was announced. In his press conference, he said, “No matter what Attorney General Cameron announces, I urge everyone to commit, once again, to a peaceful, lawful response.”
Was Breonna Taylor shot in her sleep?
Did the police announce their presence?
Did her boyfriend shoot at the police?
Will these facts matter to BLM?
Will they still riot and loot?
Will they still defend criminals?

It is important to note that not a single murder charge was filed for any police officer involved in this shooting. I wonder how LeBron is going to cope. Maybe he’ll go and incite more violence before signing more deals with communist slave-owning China.
