What happened to Breonna Taylor was a tragedy. There is no getting around that.

Yet Black Lives Matter made things a million times worse by lying and lying and lying about what actually happened. For months we’ve been fed phony accounts from the media who swallowed whatever BLM and the Taylor family attorney told them to say. Please read:

In the aftermath of the death of Breonna Taylor during a police raid on her Louisville apartment, many have questioned whether the police were at the right apartment in the first place.

“Unwarranted raid, at the wrong house for a suspect that was already in custody,” a June 3 Facebook post reads.

June 5 post from the Democratic Party also included the claim: “Three police officers shot and killed Breonna Taylor after barging into her house without a warrant …”

USA TODAY reached out for comment to the Democratic Party. A spokesperson cited the House Democrats’ efforts to ban “no knock” warrants in an email.

“Several outlets, including USA TODAY, have reported on the serious questions around the warrant and the application filed by the police officers, and there are questions around whether this no-knock warrant was even constitutional. The city of Louisville has subsequently banned these types of warrants because incidents like Breonna’s should never happen again,” Chris Meagher with the DNC told USA TODAY on June 30.

“They had the wrong address AND their real suspect was already in custody,” Ben Crump, an attorney supporting the family, tweeted on May 11. “2 months later, no one has been held accountable for her death… but we will change that!”

Problem is, it was the proper address.

The police who were investigating Taylor’s apartment did have a “no-knock” warrant to enter that address. The warrant for Taylor’s address was approved due to Taylor’s prior association with a suspect in a drug case.

Her “ex-boyfriend” listed her address as his own.

LMPD suspected that Taylor was receiving packages on behalf of her ex-boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover, who police suspected of drug trafficking, according to court documents.

In his affidavit, Louisville detective Joshua Jaynes wrote that a no-knock warrant was necessary “due to the nature of how these drug traffickers operate,” according to ABC News.

“These drug traffickers have a history of attempting to destroy evidence, have cameras on the location that compromise Detectives once an approach to the dwelling is made, and a have history of fleeing from law enforcement,” Jaynes continued.

The lies didn’t end there. The white-black pretender Shaun King spread more BS:

In the aftermath of Breonna Taylor’s death, the facts of the case have been muddled as various false claims circulate online. Among them is an assertion that one of the officers involved in the shooting death was shot by friendly fire.

“It is now believed that the police officer who got shot in the leg in the shooting of Breonna Taylor was shot by ‘friendly fire’ from his own officers,” activist Shaun King tweeted.

“His partners were haphazardly emptying their clips and fired shots into 3 different apartments. They shot him,” King continued. King also posted the same claim to Facebook.

One of the officers involved, Jonathan Mattingly, was shot in the leg after police broke into Taylor’s apartment. There is no evidence to support King’s claim that officers had shot him; rather, Kenneth Walker, Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, fired the shot as a “warning,” he later told investigators.

Attorneys for Taylor’s family and Walker do not dispute how Mattingly was injured that night.

They did have a proper no-knock warrant. The premise for the warrant is here.

However, they did not execute it. They knocked and identified themselves as police. Getting no response, they kicked in the door and took gunfire from Taylor’s boyfriend, striking one of the officers in the leg. They returned fire, killing Taylor inadvertently. A grand jury found that the only applicable charge was “wanton endangerment” against Officer Hankison because his shots penetrated an adjacent apartment.

Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron explained the event thoroughly. It’s at the link. The officer who fired the fatal shot was apparently not the officer charged.

The boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, claims to be “devastated” by the Grand Jury conclusion. He could have prevented her death by simply complying with the police.

Cameron said evidence shows the “officers both knocked and announced their presence. It was also corroborated by a witness in an apartment near Taylor’s.” Therefore, Cameron said, the warrant was not served as a “no-knock” warrant.

And that made me wonder about something- why was Taylor struck six times and Walker not once?

Did Walker use Taylor as a shield?

You will never convince me that the officers intended to shoot her.

But I came to a fateful conclusion. Knocking at the door and identifying themselves as law enforcement gave Walker time to get a hold of his weapon and ready it.

Had the officers executed the no-knock warrant it is unlikely Walker would have had time to ready his weapon and discharge it. Breonna Taylor might well be alive today and Officer Mattingly would not have been wounded. And two more cops would not have consequently been shot.
