New Ballistics in Breonna Taylor Case Directly Contradict Kentucky Attorney General
Will this send a new wave of demonstrators out into the street?
Our nation was thrown into violent disarray again last week after a grand jury’s conclusions in the Breonna Taylor case were revealed.
The judicial body chose not to charge any police officers for Taylor’s death back in March, in which a late-night drug raid ended in a hail of gunfire and no drugs were discovered anywhere in the home. A crucial piece of evidence in making this determination was the allegation that Taylor’s boyfriend first fired at police officers after they used a battering ram to enter the home.
New ballistics evidence appears to throw this claim into limbo.
A Kentucky State Police ballistics report does not support state Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s assertion that Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, shot a police officer the night she was killed.
Cameron said Wednesday the investigation of Taylor’s death March 13 ruled out “friendly fire” from officer Brett Hankison as the source of the shot that went through Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly’s thigh, prompting him and officer Myles Cosgrove to return fire, killing Taylor.
The KSP report says that “due to limited markings of comparative value,” the 9mm bullet that hit and exited Mattingly was neither “identified nor eliminated as having been fired” from Walker’s gun.
Here’s where it gets tricky:
Cameron said Hankison had been eliminated as the shooter because the three officers carried .40-caliber handguns, while Walker had a 9.
Wednesday night on CNN, Steven Romines, one of Walker’s attorneys, said he obtained a Louisville Metro Police Department record showing Hankison had been issued a 9mm weapon as well.
One can only imagine that this revelation could foment an uptick in demonstrations surrounding Taylor’s death.
