VT: A pro-Trump, anti-American militia, the 3 Percenters, were lauded as the saviors of Louisville from “evil Negros with guns.” When the “evil Negro’s” showed up to protest the murder of a 26 year old African American EMT by crooked white cops who were trying to rob a stash house (ten miles away…didn’t know how to use Google maps)…

Yes…the cops were robbing stash houses and got lost. This is what Breonna Taylor is all about, a police force that is utter and absolute useless shit.

Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African-American emergency medical technician, was fatally shot by Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) officers Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove on March 13, 2020. Three plainclothes LMPD officers executing a no-knock search warrant entered her apartment in Louisville, Kentucky. Gunfire was exchanged between Taylor’s boyfriend Kenneth Walker and the officers. Walker said that he believed that the officers were intruders. The LMPD officers fired over twenty shots. Taylor was shot eight times and LMPD Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly was injured by gunfire. Another police officer and an LMPD lieutenant were on the scene when the warrant was executed.

The primary targets of the LMPD investigation were Jamarcus Glover and Adrian Walker, who were suspected of selling controlled substances from a drug house more than 10 miles (16 km) away. Glover had a prior relationship with Taylor. 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 house. No drugs were found in the apartment.
The WNBA season started with 26 seconds of silence and an empty court. “We are dedicating this season to Breonna Taylor,” Layshia Clarendon, a New York Liberty guard and member of the new WNBA Social Justice Council, said. https://t.co/fwmMTivxE1

Walker was licensed to carry a firearm and fired first, injuring a law enforcement officer, whereupon police returned fire into the apartment with more than 20 rounds. According to a wrongful death lawsuit filed against the police by the Taylor family’s attorney, the officers, who entered Taylor’s home without knocking or announcing a search warrant, opened fire “with a total disregard for the value of human life.”
