Listen from 11:23 - 14:10 to get the boyfriend’s testimony of what happened:

LMPD's Public Integrity Unit interviews Kenneth Walker about Breonna Taylor shooting (PART 1)
https://www.wdrb.com/lmpds-public-i...dio_4bcc2a22-c314-11ea-9fa4-cffb24ba57e9.html

Alternative source (if you want/need it):



My personal beliefs
- There might be some circumstances where a no-knock warrant should be used, but I’m pretty much against it.
- Based on the available evidence, I believe Breonna’s boyfriend was innocent.
- I believe Breonna and her ex (or “ex”) was the cause of the heat being brought to her own home, as you’ll see later.
- The no-knock warrant was changed, and I don’t know if the officers identified themselves properly or not. They said they did. Several neighbors said the officers didn’t say anything, but one neighbor said he heard them identify themselves once. And the boyfriend said he didn’t hear them say anything. We, in the public, don’t have enough evidence to say one or the other. The people looking at this case have to look at the evidence and determine that. And this case really hinges on that. But if the officers did properly identify themselves, then everything is legal/justified by law (except maybe what that officer on the other side of the building did, shooting wildly). Police officers don’t legalize or sign off on no-knock warrants. They do what they’re told to do and allowed to do.

Things to consider
Breonna Taylor was not killed because she was black. The police shot because the boyfriend shot; and it sounds like the boyfriend shot because he didn’t know who the heck was breaking down the door (totally understandable). It’s a messed up situation, but what the heck does it have to do with race? FYI: No-knock warrants happen ALL THE TIME. That’s why there’s a name for it! And it happens to Hispanics, Asians, Whites … all people. And sometimes cops are shot by criminals; sometimes innocent bystanders are shot by cops or criminals; and sometimes it’s the wrong house. This is everyday policing! But the media picked out this one particular case and said, “An unarmed Black woman was killed by a White police officer as she slept in her bed.” And then the circus began.


“But a clearer picture of Ms. Taylor’s death and life, of the person behind the cause, emerged from dozens of interviews with public officials and people who knew her, as well as a review of over 1,500 pages of police records, including evidence logs, transcripts of jailhouse recordings and surveillance photos.”

That sounds like it would take time to compile and sift through. But why go through evidence to determine exactly what happened and who’s guilty or not? Why not do what most black people do and just determine all of that from a Facebook meme or news story?


Here are some excerpts from a New York Times article:

Ms. Taylor had been focused on her future with Mr. Walker. But her history with 30-year-old Jamarcus Glover, an on-again off-again boyfriend who had spent years in prison, was hard to escape, even after she cut ties with him a month before the raid. When the officers rammed the door of the apartment, Mr. Walker later explained, he fired his gun because he feared it was her ex-boyfriend forcing his way in.

Although Ms. Taylor had no criminal record and was never the target of an inquiry, Mr. Glover’s frequent run-ins with the police entangled her. She had been interviewed in a murder inquiry, and paid or arranged bail for him and his associates.

When Mr. Glover called from jail after an earlier arrest in January, she told him that his brushes with the law worried her, according to a recording; each said “I love you” before hanging up. A GPS tracker the police placed on his car later showed him making regular trips to her apartment complex, and surveillance photos showed her outside a drug house.

In a series of calls hours after her death, as Mr. Glover tried to make bail, he told another woman that he had left about $14,000 with Ms. Taylor. “Bre been having all my money,” he claimed. The same afternoon, he also told an associate he had left money at Ms. Taylor’s home.



By the end of 2019, the city had taken possession of nearly half of the vacant buildings and was working to acquire the rest — among them 2424 Elliott, 2425 Elliott, 2426 Elliott and 2427 Elliott. There, according to court records, Jamarcus Glover and his associates operated a series of “trap houses,” where they stashed crack cocaine, marijuana and prescription pills.

An informant sent inside No. 2424 reported that six men were packaging crack cocaine and passing it to customers through a mail slot in a security door.

On Dec. 30, days after the new squad was started, police executed search warrants at Nos. 2424 and 2426 and a house a few blocks away, seizing eight guns, a surveillance system and 4.9 grams of crack, according to a police log. Mr. Glover was arrested, along with five others, and soon released on bail.

On Jan. 2, Detective Joshua Jaynes of the Place-Based Investigations unit asked for a camera to be installed overlooking the 2400 block of Elliott, according to an internal report he signed. Within an hour, it had captured between 15 and 20 cars briefly stopping in front of No. 2424. “Indicative of narcotics trafficking,” his report says.

At 5:53 p.m., a white Chevrolet Impala pulled up in front of the house, and Mr. Glover exited. The car was registered to Breonna Taylor, the report says.

Over the next two months, the new squad surveilled the Elliott addresses where Mr. Glover operated, and Ms. Taylor’s apartment 10 miles away. A GPS device the police put on Mr. Glover’s car tracked it to her apartment complex six times, according to the internal report. And Ms. Taylor’s new car — a Dodge Charger — was seen at the trap house on multiple occasions; she was photographed in front of it in mid-February.

The evidence collected on the Elliott houses was extensive, according to an application for a warrant to search the premises. And it appears to have been accurate: The same March night as the raid on Ms. Taylor’s apartment, the police struck No. 2424, where they found a table covered in drugs packaged for sale, including a plastic sachet containing cocaine and fentanyl, police logs and a laboratory report show.

But the information the police had compiled to suggest that Ms. Taylor’s apartment was used in the operation was thinner.

State and federal officials are investigating whether detectives had enough evidence to tie Ms. Taylor to Mr. Glover when they sought the warrant to search her apartment. Mr. Aguiar has argued that the police did not have adequate justification for the raid, and both he and the A.C.L.U. have objected to the use of a no-knock warrant.

That type of warrant is typically used in narcotics investigations when the police need the element of surprise to disrupt criminal activity and prohibit suspects from destroying evidence, said Walter P. Signorelli, former head of narcotics at the New York Police Department and author of a book on criminal law. It is also considered high risk; multiple jurisdictions across the country banned such warrants after innocent people were mistakenly killed in raids.

Judge Mary Shaw, who signed the order, said she had “asked needed questions of the officer, reviewed the affidavits prepared for each warrant and subsequently made the probable-cause determination required of me by law.”

The warrant cited five pieces of information establishing what the police said was probable cause: Mr. Glover’s car making repeated trips between the trap house and Ms. Taylor’s home; her car’s appearance in front of 2424 Elliott on multiple occasions; surveillance footage of him leaving her apartment with a package in mid-January; a postal inspector’s confirmation that Mr. Glover used her address to receive parcels; and database searches indicating that as of late February, he listed her apartment as his home address.

Here are some excerpts from a Yahoo.com article:

On Jan. 3, after Glover was arrested on trafficking and weapons charges, he called Taylor from the jail and asked her to contact one of his co-defendants to get bail money.

Taylor responded that the associate was “already at the trap” – slang for a house used for drug trafficking.

Glover told her to be on standby to pick him up if he made bail. “I'm going to get me some rest in your bed,” he said, according to the recording.

“Love you,” he said at the end of the call.

“Love you, too,” she replied.



On Dec. 30, 2019, days before her recorded jail conversation with Glover, Taylor posted a $2,500 bond for another man charged in the same case, Darreal Forest, 34.

His attorney, Casey McCall, did not immediately respond to a question about how his client knew Taylor.

Glover, Forest and three other men were charged with trafficking and weapons offenses after police received a tip from a confidential informant that they were hiding drugs and firearms in abandoned homes adjacent to the "trap house" they allegedly operated at 2424 Elliott Ave.



The jail recordings show that on March 13, Glover, trying to round up cash to make bail on a new set of trafficking charges, called a girlfriend and told him Taylor had his money.

"She had the eight grand I gave her the other day, and she picked up another six," Glover said.

“Did she tell you where it was?” the caller asked him.

“She didn't have the chance to tell me nothing,” he replied. “She dead.”

When the caller asked Glover why he left the money with Taylor, he said, “Don’t take it wrong, but Bre been handling all my money. She has been handling (expletive) for me and … it ain’t just me."



In a different recorded phone call from the jail March 13, Demarius Bowman, who was arrested with Glover, told his sister that another woman, Alicia “Kesha” Jones, 24, had been given the group’s money.

“We put all the money on Kesha,” said Bowman, 24. “We dumped everything on her.”

Jones was holding $3,413 in cash when she was arrested earlier after the search at 2424 Elliott Ave., according to police records.

Jones, Glover and Bowman, along with three other defendants – Rayshawn Lee, 33; Anthony Taylor, 31; and Adrian Walker, 28 – are charged with complicity in trafficking in a controlled substance and running an organized crime syndicate.

This would have been the perfect teaching moment. What should have been discussed is not only the dangerous practice of police conducting no-knock warrants, but the dangerous practice of black females getting into relationships with drug dealers. If you really stop and think … that shouldn’t be normal. A person shouldn’t be in a relationship with a drug dealer or a pimp or gang banger. And yet, they not only get into relationships with these men, they actively seek these types of men for relationships. And even with many black men being drug dealers, pimps and gang bangers, black females, especially those who live outside of the hood, still come into contact with black men who are not these things. And they turn these men down. A man who is morally upright is soft to most of them. Either they like drug dealers that much, or drug dealing means absolutely nothing to them. But neither one of these should be in existence. That’s just one of many issues in black America that needs to be fixed.

This is why the justice of her death is taking so long to sort out. Louisville Police weaving a story to justify their heinous actions...smh


" No drugs were found in the apartment, but Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman and EMT, was fatally shot. Like the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, her death has fueled ongoing nationwide conversations over racial injustice and police brutality. "

" A judge had approved a "no-knock" search warrant, meaning police did not have to knock or identify themselves before entering the home, according to The Courier-Journal in Louisville. "

This one guy made a video and said the Breonna Taylor situation was like this song. I only heard portions of this song before (from other people playing it) so I checked it out. Yes, I agree with him.

Take a look at these videos if you want to listen to the report being read off. But I warn you, this dude starts off part 1 singing so you might wanna fast-forward to the 0:40 mark. And he sings in another part of part 2 so you might wanna fast-forward that too. It’s not even funny to me, it’s annoying.

This guy makes a lot of good points in this video:

Attorney alleges Breonna Taylor’s name was used in drug suspect’s plea deal; prosecutor says that’s ‘false’

So, just like with the George Floyd incident, and all the rest of these incidents, everything people said and did was for nothing. Homes and businesses destroyed. Lives lost. And just think about all the things black people thought and said about the police and white people over this case and the many other falsely reported cases. But it’s okay because no matter what we think, say, or do, we’re never guilty.

FYI: You are not in control of yourself. You don’t make decisions for yourself, others do … the System does.

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.” ― Propaganda by Edward L. Bernays

“The essence of propaganda consists in winning people over to an idea so sincerely, so vitally, that in the end they succumb to it utterly and can never escape from it.” – Joseph Goebbels

“This is the secret of propaganda: Those who are to be persuaded by it should be completely immersed in the ideas of the propaganda, without ever noticing that they are being immersed in it.” – Joseph Goebbels

“Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.” – Joseph Goebbels


“I can’t breathe.” “Say her name.” You think regular everyday people made these popular? You think regular everyday people make all the memes on Facebook?
