LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Kentucky grand jury has indicted former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor.
The two other officers involved in the shooting, Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove, were not indicted.
The announcement comes after Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron's office presented its findings to the jury earlier this week. His team has been investigating the Taylor shooting since May.
A quick reminder to people on who they should also be mad at as well, and that’s the lobbyist groups that supported the Louisville Metro PD and the Louisville mayor before the Breonna Taylor shooting. Groups like Moms Demand Action (bankrolled by Michael Bloomberg). Here they are with the Louisville Metro PD chief of police at the time of the Breonna’s death, Steve Conrad:
They are also cozy with the Louisville Mayor, Greg Fischer:
Of course, there are reasons why possibly the LMPD targeted the complex Breonna was at (kick out the low-income minorities and gentrify the area):
Attorneys for the family of Breonna Taylor claim a plan to redevelop part of the Russell neighborhood contributed to her death.
In an amended complaint filed in Jefferson County Circuit Court Sunday, attorneys Sam Aguiar and Lonita Baker called Taylor's death "the culmination of radical political and police conduct."
The attorneys claim Louisville Metro Police more aggressively pursued a drug case against Jamarcus Glover, 30, and others, because of where they allegedly operated -- a home on Elliott Avenue in the heart of Russell.
For years, the city has been buying and demolishing properties on Elliott Avenue to make room for new development as part of Vision Russell, according to the complaint.
Vision Russell is a collaborative effort to "transform Russell into a neighborhood of opportunity and choice" through redevelopment and investment. The lawyers claim over a three-week span in 2020, the city demolished eight homes on the street as part of the project.

Of course, Moms Demand Action fails to admit their organization’s support for the same people who were in charge when this all happened to Breonna:
The people that Moms Demand Action support and worked with were in charge when Breonna was killed (and are Democrats). Simple as that, yet they never once mentioned their ties to the LMPD or mayor Fischer after the shooting (I wonder why.....).
