In the early reports it was said her boyfriend fired at the police. This is not new information.

The police say they announced themselves. That does not mean they did. The police in MN when they shot that little girl claimed they announced themselves, but video showed very clearly that they went up and started firing into the residence. They got the wrong apartment.

So many lies out there. Here are facts:

Warrant was for the right apartment.
Taylor's rental car had a dead body in the trunk.
Taylor bailed her drug dealing boyfriend out twice and visited him dozens of times in jail.
The drug dealing boyfriend said she handled the cash for him.
She was frequently seen at drop houses and he was seen taking packages from her apartment.
Police believed she was heavily involved in his drug deals.
The boyfriend in her apartment fired first and originally claimed that Taylor fired the weapon.

Police say they knocked loudly while the boyfriend says they didn't.

The ONLY thing that should be in question was whether they used proper procedure and whether they properly identified themselves. But the media is spreading a bunch of lies trying to make this bad news woman look like a saint.

Well, that's enough of the changed subject to "who was the boyfriend and what was he doing".

Back to the subject:
Why is it never mentioned in today's "news" reports, that when the cops broke open the door, the boyfriend SHOT AT THE COPS from inside the darkened apartment, forcing them to return the fire, while Breonna was directly in the line of fire?

The "protesters" are always yelling that "Breonna was murdered", when she clearly wasn't. The agenda to pretend this was a bunch of careless white cops shooting at a black girl because of her color, is on full display... and it requires pretending the protesters didn't know the cops were responding to gunfire from within the apartment.

It makes a great story, pinning the "murder" on the cops... as long as people aren't told that the cops were returning fire. Then the "protesters" can go on pretending.

Interesting-I had heard NONE of that. Media does a hell of a job of suppressing the truth.

Ms. Taylor had an on-again off-again relationship with Jamarcus Glover, a convicted drug dealer who listed her apartment as his address and used it to receive packages.

You are the company you keep. Breonna Taylor is no innocent here, she was using her house as a cash stash house while her boyfriend aka her business partner, ran the trap house. Taylor was photographed at the trap house (drug house) leaving with packages. Recorded phone conversations also had the two of them talking about their business deals. Justified search warrant and the only reason she was shot was because her current boyfriend opened fire on the police when they entered the home, shooting an officer. Taylor was knee deep in the drug trade and the liberals who make these felons meth heads as their civil rights hero’s is mind blowing.

Which was from when she dated the other guy...MONTHS ago, and whome she was no longer dating. You state this like it was found in her car during this incident. Very misleading . Even the linked article makes that clear unlike you.

her EX boyfriend. Gosh...shocking that she might see him in jail while dating him.....

Quote:

Her ex BF says lots of things. But again-this was months prior.

And appear to have been wrong.

You mean when someone broke the door down? and cops were hit, and she was dead? Also...doesnt matter in regards to her.

Someone knocks loudly or softly doesn't matter when they then break your door down.

They shot someone who was unarmed, and did no wrong. So yeah, people are upset. You trying to change reality by trying to make it sound like they found a dead body in her rental car and making it sound like the body was there when the incident occurred, or was her fault is simply insane.

No-knock raids are a setup, and this is the proof.
It's a perfectly legal process. Don't blame the cops because they followed the law.

I haven't heard ONE "news" outlet mention that. Especially when they are showing some protest outraged that Taylor got shot. Her boyfriend in the apartment opened fire on the police, and the police fired back, just as they are always trained to do, continuing to fire until the threat against them was stopped.

Were the cops supposed to NOT return fire, even as somebody was shooting at them?

This important fact puts a whole different light on what happened. Breonna's tragic death was not a murder, it was an accident. The cops were doing what they HAD to do.

But it suits the agenda of somebody, to keep pretending it was just a bunch of trigger-happy cops randomly opening fire on a black girl. So we keep getting distorted reporting pretending she was murdered, while never mentioning that somebody in the apartment opened fire on the cops first, thus forcing the cops (yes, forcing) to shoot back into the apartment.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooti...Breonna_Taylor
Every single report I’ve seen on this incident noted that the boyfriend shot at the cops.
It put no different light on anything.
The boyfriend thought that someone was attacking them.
He was legally permitted to carry and he was standing his ground.

Or is that not a thing now?

You've heard of "suicide by cop". This time it was "murder by cop", where this idiot forced the cops to shoot at him a lot, while Breonna was right there in the line of fire.

But this is never mentioned when the media shows "protesters" screaming "Breonna Taylor was murdered!".
The boyfriend who was with her is not a drug dealer.
You really haven’t a clue about the facts of this case.

You have a right to defend yourself and your home. Most people probably would have done the same thing.
They would have thought themselves the victims of a burglary or home invasion.



It's a local story, did it make it onto the national news, that the DA tried to get her Ex-boyfriend to implicate her and say she dealed drugs in exchange for getting a reduced sentence? (To try to smear her character and paint her in a negative light and sort of to excuse the officers somewhat)?????? He told them no. It wasn't true and he would not lie.

Thank you.

It is absolutely disgusting how the cops have tried to cover themselves after killing this woman.
