Well Louisville be prepared to pay out from now on since you caved on this.

Perhaps Breonna Taylor was a victim of circumstances but her live in boyfriend shot at cops.

LMPD got a no knock warrant but the officers nonetheless knocked/identified before attempting entry
Gunfire was exchanged between Taylor's boyfriend Kenneth Walker and the officers through the door. Walker said that he believed that the officers were intruders. The LMPD officers fired over twenty shots.
Breonna Taylor was caught in a crossfire her boyfriend initiated.

The primary targets of the LMPD investigation were Jamarcus Glover and Adrian Walker, Kenneth Walker’s brother. Kenneth had a gun legally.
Taylor was shot eight times and LMPD Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly was injured by gunfire also.

Kenneth Walker was licensed to carry a firearm, fired first, injuring Mattingly, when police returned fire into the apartment.
Jamarcus Glover and Adrian Walker were suspected of selling controlled substances from a drug house 10 miles away.

A neighbor witnessed everything and corroborated the LMPD claim that they hollered Police and someone inside the house shot through the front door.
According to a Taylor family attorney, Jamarcus Glover had dated Breonna Taylor two years before and continued to have a "passive friendship".

LMPD has observed both suspects come and go from that residence multiple times.
The search warrant included Taylor's residence because it was suspected that Glover received packages containing drugs at Taylor's apartment and because a car registered to Taylor had been seen parked on several occasions in front of Glover's drug house.
No drugs were found in the apartment. Sounds like a legal execution of a warrant that went south quickly.

Fact is if you shoot at cops they generally shoot back.
Louisville decided to pay the $12 million and that was their choice.

But going after these cops for returning fire with an officer 998 criminally is bullshit.
An internal affairs investigation confirmed from interviews with Kenneth Walker and with Taylor's neighbors that the police had knocked loudly before attempting to breaking in, so the no knock claim is BS.
The suspected drug dealer Glover had been seen walking into Taylor's apartment that afternoon and left with a USPS package before leaving and driving to a known his drug house.
The warrant said a US Postal Inspector confirmed that the man had been receiving packages at the apartment.

Taylor was an EMT and Walker was unemployed.
Walker said in his police interrogation that Taylor yelled multiple times, "Who is it?" after hearing a loud banging at the door, but didn’t hear an answer, and that he then armed himself. Walker, a licensed firearm carrier, shot first, striking officer Mattingly in the leg.
LMPD returned fire. Three officers fired a total of 20 rounds.

Taylor was shot five times in the body and pronounced dead at the scene according to the autopsy.

Walker surrendered then and was Taken into custody.
Louisville U.S. Attorney's Office is reviewing the findings.The FBI is also conducting its own independent investigation. Those two investigations are still ongoing.
Walker initially faced criminal charges of first-degree assault and attempted murder of a police officer. The LMPD officers said they announced themselves before entering the home and were immediately met with gunfire from Walker.
According to their statement, Walker discharged his firearm first, injuring Mattingly.

Walker's lawyer said Walker thought that someone was entering the residence illegally and that Walker acted only in self-defense.

Walker was released from jail due to COVID-19 concerns

Remember 2016, there’s been some slow development in the Weiner Laptop ordeal. Former FBI agent John Robertson told the IG about massive delays out of the NYFO coming from the seventh floor of JEH.
Robertson said for weeks after being alerted, top FBI leaders including Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and Bill Priestap took little to no action to investigate. Only after threats to go public by the NYPD who had the laptop did they finally act.
All this was buried by the seventh floor while they devised a way to white wash it with an interview unlike any suspect has ever been given with a possible NATSEC breach of this magnitude.

This should set off your tuning fork that the briefing in the SCIF yesterday has them scrambling for lifeboats. Here they left goes trying to project a lack of credibility into what Durham is about to deliver.
When you throw a rock in the bushes and you hear a yelp, that's the dog that was hit.

Your turn in the barrel dipshits
Gotta love those blatant Dem-biased articles used for circular references and hearsay rumors as their basis for "politics getting into the investigation". Bill Barr had every legal right to not allow Mueller's Report from ever seeing the light of day but he didn't.

All these frantic MAGA's running around with their hair on fire over how things are proceeding, propagandized by the media with false deadlines of 60 days before an election, and lack of instant gratification requests not being granted.
You've got to ask yourself questions, why is @realDonaldTrump is not blowtorching Barr on Twitter for not indicting the swampers right now? Why is Barr not getting the surface of the sun heat that Sessions got?
The evidence is overwhelming and some of his strongest supporters are almost apoplectic about the injustice. Between Sessions complete failure to do his job, & Rosenstien/Mueller stalling prosecutorial progress when it came to the swamp, it's taken time.

.@JoeBiden handlers are desperate to pander to hispanics down in Florida the have him play the Latino Hit "Despacito" Did they look at the translation 🤣🤣

I want to breathe your neck slowly
Let me tell you things in your ears
So that you remember when you're not with me
I want to undress you with kisses slowly
Sign the walls of your labyrinth
And make your whole body a manuscript
Turn it up turn it up..... turn it up, turn it up
I wanna see you dance
I wanna be your rhythm
I want you to show me
Your favourite places places places Places
Let me surpass your danger zones
To make you scream
And forget your name
