Breonna Taylor’s Boyfriend SUES Louisville Police Afer Tragic Shooting + Kentucky AG Has ‘Critical’ FBI Ballistics Report + Breonna’s Alleged Ex Given Plea Deal To Implicate Her

​ ​ ​ ​

We’ve got a few updates in the Breonna Taylor case. Get news about her boyfriend – Kenneth Walker – suing the Louisville Metro Police Department, what Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron revealed about the FBI ballistics report and deets about Breonna’s alleged ex-boyfriend being offered a plea deal to implicate her inside…

It’s been five months since police carried out a “botched raid” that took the life of a 26-year-old black EMT. Breonna Taylor was shot and killed in her home by police who raided the WRONG residence. Her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, was charged with attempted murder because he reportedly shot one of the police officers who entered their home unannounced.

Twenty-two shots were let off by police officers, eight of them struck Breonna and killed her on March 13th.

Following the fatal shooting, Breonna’s family filed a lawsuit against the Louisville Metro Police Department. Now, her wrongfully accused boyfriend is doing the same.

Today, Kenneth Walker held a press conference to announce his lawsuit against the Louisville Metro Police Department.

“The charges brought against me were meant to silence me and cover up Breonna’s murder,” he said. “For her, and those that I love, I can no longer remain silent. For her and those that I love, I can no longer remain silent,” he said.

Peep the clip below:

Respectable move by Kenneth.

The lawsuit names Mayor Greg Fischer, Attorney General Daniel Cameron, Jefferson County Commonwealth’s Attorney Tom Wine, LMPD Police Chief Rob Schroeder, former Chief Steve Conrad, the Louisville Area Governmental Self-Insurance Trust, 13 LMPD officers and unnamed officers, according to reports. Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, Detective Myles Cosgrove, and former Detective Brett Hankison were the officers involved in the shooting.

The 28-year-old is seeking unspecified monetary damages from the city and the police department for assault, battery, false arrest and imprisonment, malicious prosecution, abuse of process and negligence stemming from the night Breonna was killed.

Kenneth’s attorney wants an immediate judgement for Kenneth’s immunity under Kentucky’s “stand your ground” law, which prevents officials from prosecuting anyone who acts in self-defense. The civil complaint was filed in the Jefferson County District Court today.

Also, Kenneth’s attorney claims his client didn’t fire the bullet that wounded a Louisville police officer that night.

"We know police are firing wildly from various angles," attorney Steve Romines told The Courier Journal. "The timeline and evidence at the scene is more indicative of (police) actually shooting Mattingly than it is Kenny Walker."

“Kenny continues to reel from the death of the love of his life, but he is also the victim and survivor of police misconduct — misconduct that threatens his freedom to this day,” the complaint said.

The Courier Journal breaks down the details of what happened the night Breonna was murdered:

In the complaint, Romines states that Walker was interrogated by LMPD under false pretenses the night of the shooting — and then wrongfully and illegally arrested, detained, charged and prosecuted.

After police used a battering ram to enter Taylor's apartment while serving a search warrant, Walker fired what he said was a "warning" shot, striking Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly in the femoral artery in his thigh.

Mattingly, along with detective Myles Cosgrove and now-fired detective Brett Hankison, returned fire, killing Taylor.

However, Romines told The Courier Journal Tuesday that he doesn't believe Walker shot Mattingly.

We can’t even imagine what Kenneth is going through after the love of his life was murdered right in front him. We pray for strength during this traumatic time and hope he prevails!

Speaking of boyfriends...

 

Jamarcus Glover – a man police identified as Breonna’s ex-boyfriend and the focus of the no-knock raid – was arrested on drug charges last week and he was reportedly offered a plea deal that would have implicated Breonna in his alleged crimes.

 

 

Jamarcus was offered a plea deal that required him to agree to confirm that Breonna was part of an “organized crime syndicate,” according to WDRB. On July 13th, Jamarcus was given the offer by the Jefferson Commonwealth’s Attorney office to avoid a 10-year prison sentence and be sentenced to possible probation on charges of criminal syndication, drug trafficking and gun charges.

They wanted him to admit that he and Breonna were “co-codefendants” and that she was also involved in the drug trafficking operation in Louisville through April 22nd. Did they not realize she was MURDERED on March 13th? So, how could she be involved in a drug trafficking operation through April 22nd?

Well, Jamarcus turned down the deal.

“The fact that they would try to even represent that she was a co-defendant in a criminal case more than a month after she died is absolutely disgusting,” said Sam Aguiar – an attorney representing Breonna’s family. We couldn't agree more.

Last week, the 30-year-old told the Courier Journal Breonna had NOTHING to do with any illegal drug trafficking. He said the information police obtained the night of her death was wrong and that the police are attempting to change the narrative of her death.

"The police are trying to make it out to be my fault and turning the whole community out here making it look like I brought this to Breonna's door," Glover told USA Today/The Courier Journal in a video interview from an unidentified location.

"There was nothing never there or anything ever there, and at the end of the day, they went about it the wrong way and lied on that search warrant and shot that girl out there," he said. 

After failing to post $50,000 bail on previous drug and trafficking charges, Jamarcus became a fugitive. Police arrested him hours after his interview with The Courier Journal on an outstanding warrant.

Jamarcus believes the police implicated Breonna in his alleged crimes because she bailed him out of jail before and she would receive packages at her apartment for him. He said “shoes and clothes” were inside the packages.

Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine responded to Jamarcus' claims, stating the plea offer was a "draft" and that her name ended up being removed.

 

 

 

Meanwhile…

 

 

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron - who spoke during the RNC last week & is a Trump supporter - revealed his office received the FBI ballistics report from the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor and said it's a "critical" piece of the investigation.

"That is a critical piece of this investigation," Daniel Cameron said on "Face the Nation."

"There's no video footage of the incident in question and Miss Taylor's passing. And I can announce to you today as part of those efforts early this week, we have received that ballistics report. Now, again, that is a critical piece of this investigation. It's not the end all be all. There are still some witness testimony and interviews that have to be conducted. But we do have that ballistics report. We will be meeting with the FBI at the beginning of this upcoming week to have a painstaking review of that information. And that will help us in the analysis that needs to be undertaken before we can get to final steps"

Let's get the ball rolling on Breonna Taylor's case so the people who murdered her, or at least negligently killed her, get prosecuted...ASAP!
