As of late Thursday afternoon the situation in Louisville, Kentucky has taken on the appearance of surreal performance art, where the guilty prosecute the innocent for crimes that were never committed. Such is the current status of the Breonna Taylor case.
Former Louisville Police Officer Brett Hankison was indicted by a grand jury Wednesday on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree for firing rounds into Breonna Taylor’s neighbor’s apartment, endangering the lives of three residents who were home at the time. He was not charged in connection to Taylor’s death. Riots broke out immediately, even though the officers including Hankison were under fire during the incident from Taylor’s drug dealer boyfriend, who was in the apartment with her.
Hankison is being made the fall guy in this incident in an attempt to molify the racist mobs that want to abolish the entire concept of police departments. He was under fire and obviously did not target the neighbors, but rather misfired in an attempt to protect himself and his comrades. Though the racist mobs want his head on a platter, most legal experts think getting a conviction on wanton endangerment against Hankison will be difficult, if not impossible. Thank God.
Meanwhile, racist slurs are being directed against Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, even though the grand jury, not Cameron’s office, issued the indictment. More riots are expected Thursday night, in complete and deliberate ignorance of the facts of the case.
As the riots proceeded Wednesday night, two Louisville Police Officers were shot by a rioter. “LMPD Major Aubrey Gregory was treated and released from University Hospital with a leg wound after being shot beneath his hip. Officer Robinson Desroches was struck in the abdomen is in stable condition after undergoing significant surgery and is expected to recover,” Fox News reported.

The shooter is rioter Larynzo Johnson, 26, and he has been charged with two counts of assault in the first degree and 14 counts of wanton endangerment in connection with the shooting of the two police officers.
Louisville Police Chief Robert Schroeder said Wednesday police made 127 “protest-related” arrests across the city during the riots following the grand jury decision to cowardly charge Hankison in connection to the police raid that resulted in the death of Breonna Taylor. There were also at least 16 instances of looting across the city.
“I want to emphasize how grateful I am for LMPD. The men and woman literally putting their lives of the line to protect our people and protect our city,” Mayor Greg Fischer said at a Thursday press conference. “What we saw last night with two police officers being shot is obviously, completely unacceptable. Violence will only be a source of pain, not a cure for pain. We know violence is never the answer.” But Democrat-sponsored Marxist violence will continue in Louisville tonight. Damn the facts, damn justice. The racist mobs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter just want power and they don’t care how they get it.
