Kentucky AG Now Looking to Delay Release of Grand Jury Material in Breonna Taylor Case

This will almost certainly irk activists who have been demanding answers for months.

It was only days ago that a grand jury determined that only one officer would be charged with a crime during the raid that killed Breonna Taylor back in March, and that those charges would not be directly related to Taylor’s death at all.  Instead, the officer in question was charged with “wanton endangerment” after discharging his weapon recklessly and into the apartment next door to Taylor’s.

This sent protesters back out into the streets to again demand justice for the young woman, who was shot several times by police during the late night raid.

This week, a member of that grand jury lamented that the process was not as transparent as it should have been, legally requesting the right to speak about their experience.

The Kentucky Governor also called for the grand jury materials to be made public, something that the state’s Attorney General seemed amenable to.  Now, that appears to have changed.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s office on Wednesday announced it moved to delay the release of grand jury records in the controversial March police shooting of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, hours before the audio recording of the proceedings was set to go public.

Cameron’s office filed a motion late Tuesday to delay the release by one week in order to protect the identity of the witnesses, particularly the private citizens, named in the recording, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. His office said it wants to “redact personal identifiers of any named person and to redact both names and personal identifiers of any private citizen.”

While those redactions appear to be for the greater good, the delay is almost certain to fuel the fire of protesters who have long believed that something fishy is occurring with Taylor’s case.
