In the ongoing case of Breonna Taylor, new details have emerged. This week, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron sat down with CNN for an exclusive interview regarding the case. Cameron admitted that he did seek murder charges for either officer involved in the shooting.
Earlier this week, Kentucky State police released a ballistic report. The report revealed that State Attorney General Daniel Cameron was wrong. The report does not support the notion that Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker fired the first gunshot and shot a policeman.
During the interview, he disclosed that the two officers involved in the incident, were justified in their actions and behavior.
Breonna Taylor‘s case has gotten national attention. After Breonna Taylor’s death, people around the world called for an investigation. People also called for the officer’s conviction. When the officers entered her home wearing plain clothes, a shoot-out ensued leaving Taylor dead. As many may recall, last week the grand jury found that none of the officers guilty of first- or second-degree murder. Out of the three Officers, Myles Cosgrove, Jonathan Mattingly and Brett Hankison; only one officer had been indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment.
Cameron continued in his interview saying, “Ultimately, our judgment is that the charge that we could prove at trial beyond a reasonable doubt was for wanton endangerment against Mr. Hankison.”
