#Roommates, as the details continue to emerge regarding the recent indictment (or lack thereof) in the Breonna Taylor case, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is under fire following a shocking admission. After being accused by a juror of misleading the public regarding evidence in the case, Cameron just admitted that he never actually recommended that the officers who shot Breonna Taylor be indicted on murder or manslaughter charges.
@TMZ_TV reports, during a recent interview with a local media outlet in Louisville, Kentucky, state Attorney General Daniel Cameron openly admitted that he never recommended that officers Jonathan Mattingly and Myles Cosgrove be indicted on murder or manslaughter charges for the shooting death of Breonna Taylor. Instead, Cameron said that the case he presented to the grand jury supported the belief that the officers were fully justified in firing their weapons because Breonna’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, shot at them first.
Cameron explained his strategy for his lack of indictment, stating “Our recommendation is that [officers] Jonathan Mattingly and Myles Cosgrove were justified in their acts and their conduct.” He continued, adding that he told the grand jury that the single witness who says he heard the police announce themselves before the raid changed his story.
Additionally, Daniel Cameron confirmed that the wanton endangerment charged was the only thing he felt he could prove beyond a reasonable doubt. However, it should be noted that Louisville police allegedly didn’t provide medical assistance to Breonna Taylor for 20 minutes, which would seem to easily put manslaughter (legally defined as reckless disregard for human life) on the table in the indictment—but it was not.
As we previously reported, one of the grand jurors in the Breonna Taylor case filed a motion earlier this week to be able to speak publicly after openly accusing Daniel Cameron of knowingly misleading the public about crucial evidence that was presented to jurors in the case.
