Things are likely to get bad in Louisville, Kentucky.
The grand jury announced Wednesday that they had only indicted one police officer in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor. The officer indicted in the case was charged with wanton endangerment, apparently for the shots being fired and not actually for the shooting of Taylor.
Following the announcement, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron came out and explained the charges, saying that mob justice is not justice. He was very matter-of-fact, to the point and explained that he understood Wednesday’s announcement would not please everyone. In other words, he said exactly what you want someone charged with upholding the law to say.
I understand that there is a lot of emotion tied to this case. I get that a particular group of people feel like they are not being heard or understood by those in power, I get that. However, the fact of the matter remains that Cameron and the grand jury had evidence that you and I did not have and they made this decision.
However, there are still some who are unable to accept this idea that they had much more evidence about the case that you or I had and instead of accepting this want to throw more fuel on the fire.
