Breonna Taylor Killing, At Least One Cop Wore a Body Cam
A potentially important development in the Breonna Taylor murder … at least one of the cops who raided his home appears to be carrying a body camera, which raises questions about the police department’s earlier statements that there was no body video camera from the shooting.
Officer Tony James is seen in this photo clearly wearing a body camera. The photo was obtained by VICE news, and this contradicts the police chief, who said that after the shooting, the officers involved are in divisions that do not need body cameras.
What we don’t know … was the camera operational during filming? If so, it could be the critical piece of evidence to determine exactly what happened inside Breonna’s house.
A second officer – Myles Cosgrove – was also photographed with a body camera mount, but no camera was attached.
Breonna, who has been shot several times in the raid, and her boyfriend, Kenneth walker, were asleep on March 13 when cops came to execute a search warrant involving her ex-boyfriend. They used a ram to get in and Walker fired a warning shot from inside. He says the cops never identified themselves … the police say they did.
Walker’s shot hit a cop, and officers responded with 35 shots. An officer fired 10 shots indiscriminately. When the cops wrote their report, they said Breonna was not injured. It was a lie.
As we reported, local prosecutors attempted to strike a plea deal with Breonna’s ex-boyfriend, telling him that if he said Breonna was selling drugs, they would. cut him a good deal – possibly probation instead of 10 years in prison. The cops have no proof Breonna was involved in drugs and the family say it’s a shocking case of trying to smear Breonna’s name in order to protect the cops who killed her. The ex-boyfriend rejected the deal.
So far, no one has been arrested or charged with Breonna’s death.
