"Evidence #BreonnaTaylor case cop shot by loose cannon partner, not Breonna's boyfriend #KennethWalker." /1
Remember this #BreonnaTaylor news is 9/1 dated so there may be more recent updates.

"This isn't the newest article, but the best I've seen with forensic facts to figure out what actually happened to #BreonnaTaylor, and her boyfriend #KennethWalker. /2
"#BreonnaTaylor is repeatedly mentioned in intl news coverage abt #protest, not facts. For example, I've heard it on @BBCWorld. This article shows that #protestors are onto somethng. #Louisville justice for #Black people / #AfricanAmericans is dirty all the way to the top. /3
"Currently @kyoag Cameron is in waiting to announce charges for #Louisville #cops. He's in a tough spot w/the global #blackwomen #BLM focus on #BreonnaTaylor's cop-scandalous demise. /4
"@kyoag probably doing backroom consultation with the likes of his mentor @senatemajldr #McConnell, trying to figure out which charges (or none) for the cops will do the least damage to McConnell's or Cameron's political careers. /5
"But alternatively, trivial charges could result in #protesters burning down parts of commercial #Louisville, alienate the business community, and energize #Democrats to oust #McConnell in the #2020Election (unlikely, polls say). /6
"In this article they provide evidence that #KennethWalker, #BreonnaTaylor's most recent boyfriend (not the drug dealer), didn't hit #Mattingly the cop with his one hollow point bullet, because that would have done a lot more damage to Mattingly's leg: /7

"There's also no blood photographed on #KennethWalker's obvious-shaped bullet. Officer #Hankison is heard (maybe on a 911 recording) after a minute of silence - no demand for surrender - rather calling for "reload", leading to a second volley of shots. /8
#BreonnaTaylor was probably killed in the first volley, or her voice would have been mentioned in coverage. #Hankison was later fired for shooting indiscriminately, probably including for shots fired into adjacent apartments, so he's more likely the perp who shot #Mattingly. /9
"The charges against #Walker were dropped temporarily, but he's suing to drop the charges permanently ("with prejudice"), as well as for financial compensation, which he will surely get, and deserves, in a big settlement with #Louisville. /10
(Update: #BreonnaTaylor's mother also sued for wrongful death and today the City of #Louisville agreed to pay her family $12 million and institute reforms aimed at preventing future murders by police.) /11

"Last week, I heard a California local forum on @EmpireKVCR w/a national investigative reporter, @rcallimachi. She said #BreonnaTaylor lived on a drug crime hotspot street, so not all of #black #Louisville is being drug-policed so heavily. /12
"Here's the @KQEDnews interview with investigative reporter Rukmini Callimachi @rcallimachi about #BreonnaTaylor on @KQEDForum – The Live Statewide Conversation on Public Radio. /13

"Also the rumored accusations of gentrification, residents say, are false; they just want, and were getting, normal-paced development.

"Finally, not much coverage mentions B.T.'s apartment was broken in that night bc she had a 3 year relationship w/a drug dealer. Bad karma. /14
"We'll probably never know what she knew about him, or if she looked the other way.

"So the #cops were suspicious, and got a search warrant because #BreonnaTaylor was still receiving some of the former boyfriend's mail, probably normal advertising. /15
"The neighbors agree with #KennethWalker that the #cops didn't announce themselves as they broke in #BreonnaTaylor's place with a battering ram." /16

Political speculative fiction idea from a friend: @JohnKasich throws his hat in the ring as an Independent: 'Folks, vote for me, or vote for @JoeBiden. Either way you'll vote for the future of American democracy, and either way you'll get a better Pres. than you've got now.' /1
'Am I a spoiler? No. Here's why. I'll campaign to get your vote, and I'll try to become President. But on election day, or whenever you vote early, I'm asking you to vote for either @JohnKasich or @JoeBiden , whichever of us you think is polling ahead. You decide.' /2
'You can vote without spoiling, @JohnKasich or @JoeBiden, because it's an election within an election. Either way, American democracy wins.'
If you enjoyed this political speculation idea, feel free to retweet it to political analyst & filmmaker @MMFlint. /3
