    Grand jury found he shot at the police first after they knocked and announced, reinstate the charges take it before a jury.

    Sounds like discrimination.

    Grand jury just indicts doesn’t convict. There are multiple witness who dispute this. That’s what a trial is for. Oh that’s right there isn’t one except for the criminal cop. Only one facing a trial.

    They heard the door being broken down by a battering ram ( though I'm sure they couldn't discern the tool being used). They may have also been awakened by the gunshots that came into the apartment, through her window & sliding glass door, from the one, charged ex-officer. Crazy ex-boyfriends have been known to not always make the stealthiest of entries into locked apartments.

    Further, I just heard live reporting from NY Times reporter Rukmini Callimachi that, according to the fmr. Kentucky Police Academy trainer who had trained these officers, in a properly-executed, "knock-&-announce," the officers should be, "screaming,'police!' so loudly that the entire apartment complex hears it," and that, according to the reporter, "by all accounts, did not occur." Only one, out of a dozen neighbors who'd they spoken with, heard the policemens' announcing themselves.

    And that is from an article that claims to know and stipulate to just exactly what evidence was presented at the grand jury? Again do tell IE you're entirely incorrect and I want to watch you flail around.

    They shot the first cop as soon as he entered and ballistics and blood splatter confirmed. I would find it almost impossible to believe they heard a door ram break the door, got out of bed together went to the hall with a loaded gun and shot in what 2 seconds. We'll all get to see the evidence and if it's true there's zero chance your scenario is plausible. I could care less what the NYT says after the African American Kentucky AG just destroyed their stories on this case. Like the AG said, you will have media and celebrities trying to rile up opposition with no knowledge of the evidence so he gave us the basic facts, it took a whole two hours.

    Everything posted was common knowledge. Not sure what you are getting on about.

    It was actually a FORMER boyfriend of Breonna's who was the police suspect (perhaps the same one Breonna's new boyfriend thought might be breaking in).

    You’re flat out wrong. The question is... do you realize it and say this garbage anyway?

    Maybe you should go back to the initial post and read what I wrote.

    You didn't read the post I responded to, by @dispondent

    So, the substance of his post is to assassinate the character of liberals based on anyone they support, or whom they hold up as 'poster child' as 'scum' and the proper response is to reveal the kind of person republicans support, and the poster child ( his language ) is Trump, who is the worst president in history, a threat to US national security owing to his incompetence and authoritarian tendencies.

    But, of course, you don't give a damn, you just jump into the middle of someone else's conversation, and start shooting with no consideration of context.

    No wonder the vast majority of the electorate prefer democrats over republicans.

    The Democrat appointed AG's won't police their own is what it shows.

    So you have the basic facts wrong and note the reckless manner in which the police acted.

    They also lied and never rendered aid to the woman they had just shot

    I'm all for reserving final judgement until all the evidence comes out at trial. It doesn't sound as though you think waiting is necessary.

    So, the city and BLM will be satisfied with result? Maybe one more quick memorial and then we can all go about our lives with this behind us?

    ......

    Or should I turn on the news?

    Based on what the AG announced today it sounds like the police involved followed protocol. The grand jury transcripts will not be released yet so there may be more to learn when they are. It's tragic but not murder. Protestors need to be careful lumping every police incident as race driven and abuse of police power. This is where liberals lose credibility when they paint with a broad brush.

    Trump may be the pilot, but the plane won't fly if it is being sabotaged by liberals.

    Hopefully they'll bring murder charges against the boyfriend for her death.

    Did you not even listen to the DA's press conference today, as a result of the fatal shot she would have died within 15 seconds to 2 minutes regardless of aid rendered. The officer who fired recklessly has been charged for that, the other two did not.

    They heard the witnesses under oath, you did not. Remember all the alleged witnesses in the Michael Brown shooting who told the press they heard and saw the "hands up don't shoot" but under oath they all retracted and said that they had just "heard" that is what happened. They indicted on the charges which were warranted by the evidence.
