Breonna Taylor case: Grand jury was ’not allowed to bring murder charges’

A Kentucky grand juror has said the jury was not given the chance to consider homicide charges in the police killing of Breonna Taylor. Police shot Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman, six times in her apartment in Louisville, Kentucky on March 13, which triggered protests across several US cities. A judge permitted the anonymous juror to release the statement, ruling it was in the public interest.

A Homicide charge wouldn't of been an appropriate charge it would be involuntary man slaughter at worse. Regardless you had cops who had a warrant one got shot in the leg so the police returned fire. Blame the boyfriend not the police.

Yeah, the DA is the one who files charges, so it is limited to what the GJ is allowed to consider. Maybe they should say the they were also not allowed to consider war crimes? Nor were they allowed to consider rape charges? This is why I had a problem with only one GJ member being allowed to provide their view. It doesn't represent the whole.
