Wednesday evening, NewsMax reported, “Officer In Breonna Taylor Case Fights Move To Fire Him.”
At least one Kentucky police officer connected to the fatal shooting of a Black woman, Breonna Taylor, is fighting a police move to terminate his employment.
An attorney for Louisville Metro Police detective Joshua Jaynes told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his client hasn’t done anything wrong and shouldn’t be disciplined in connection with a police raid in March that led to Taylor’s death. The shooting of the 26-year-old woman in her Louisville home sparked months of protests there amid national protests over racial injustice and police misconduct.
“I’m very troubled by the chief’s actions here, and I hope that we can challenge those proposed actions successfully,” attorney Thomas Clay said.
The National Director of the Knights Party, based in Harrison Arkansas, Thomas Robb said, “It’s to the point in America that law enforcement officials are being prevented from doing their jobs, which is to protect and serve. If you look at every case this past year that a non-white was killed by law enforcement, these non-whites were commiting serious crimes at the time. And in most cases, they were interacting violently with law enforcement. In this case, this whole matter could have been avoided very easily…..don’t get involved in drug sales! That ‘thug’ life may cause serious injury and/or death.”
