Breonna Taylor Grand Juror Wants to Talk, Files Motion with Court
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel cameron has at least one pissed off grand juror on his hands in the Breonna Taylor case … and that person is claiming the right to talk about the proceedings.
The anonymous grand juror filed a motion on Monday with Jefferson County Circuit Court asking a judge to lift the gag order for all grand jurors who wish to go public – because that juror feels Cameron put them out to dry when he announced the ex-cop indictment Brett hankison.
According to the documents, obtained by TMZ, the grand juror said Cameron has repeatedly told the media “that only the grand jury made the decision on who and what to charge based solely on the evidence presented to them.” . As you know, Hankison and the 2 other cops involved have not been billed with the shooting and murder of Breonna. Instead, Hankison was the only one charged with shooting his gun at an apartment next door to Breonna.

The move sparked days of protest across the country, and it’s clear this grand juror feels Cameron is shirking responsibility. As he or she puts it in the material, “It is patently unfair that jurors are subjected to the level of accountability the attorney general has campaigned for simply because they have been subpoenaed to serve their community.”
Translation: You ran for this office, Daniel Cameron, so you should feel the heat.
Although the grand juror was not specific, it does appear that they have some complaints about how the proceedings unfolded. It would be really interesting to know if the grand jury heard the 12 apartment residents say that the police had NOT identified themselves before. break Breonna’s door. If the grand jury did not hear them, it would be interesting to know if this information would have prompted this grand juror to vote to indict the cops who shot Breonna.
Grand jury proceedings are always kept secret, so this juror’s request is highly unusual.
But, as they say in the documentation … “Using grand jurors as a shield to deflect responsibility and accountability for these decisions only sows doubt in the process while leaving a chill in the backs of future grand jurors. . “
In addition to the right to speak publicly, the juror also asks the judge to publish the transcript of the proceedings.
