A tape recording of the Kentucky grand jury proceedings in the Breonna Taylor case will be released on Wednesday after an anonymous juror filed a legal complaint saying the Kentucky Attorney General, Daniel Cameron, misrepresented the case.
The juror said they had not been offered “the option of indicting the two officers who fatally shot the young woman.” The public will find out on Wednesday if that was the case and the details surrounding the case.
Taylor’s case, is one of many that has spurred nationwide protests and riots across the country. The grand jury indicted the former Louisville police officer for wanton endangerment during the raid that took the life of Taylor.
However, the other two officers who also fired shots, were not indicted. Moreover, no one was charged for causing Ms. Taylor’s death.
According to reports the former Louisville police officer, Brett Hankison, who was a detective at the time, fired into the sliding glass patio door and window of Ms. Taylor’s apartment. The windows were covered with blinds, so shooting into the apartment was in violation of a department policy. The department, according to reports, requires officers to have a line of sight when they fire their weapons, meaning that they can see what they are firing at.
The three officers, which included Hankison, were dismissed from the force. The letter of termination according to The New York Times stated that that he showed “an extreme indifference to the value of human life.”
There are a lot of questions connected to the Taylor case that still need to be answered but in my opinion the most important one is the one we’re not dealing with: police officer training.
We saw in the case of George Floyd the extensive use of force that led to his killing and in Taylor’s case a failure to follow proper protocol and training when firing a weapon.
I wonder if what we’re seeing has more to do with improper training than racism.
It’s a question worth asking and looking into.
