Are you forgetting that the police were fired upon first as they entered the apartment which they had reason to believe was an apartment involved in illegal drug dealing and would thus be armed?Not if they saw Breonna Taylor and shot her directly. Not if it was an arrest warrant and they decided to shoot the drug dealer instead.
The police fired in self-defense at the man holding the gun who had just fired at them, the man who then quickly hit the ground leaving Taylor exposed beside him, and she was struck six times.
The police did not "decide to shoot the drug dealer instead".
The police fired back quickly in self-defense before the gunman could return fire.
They saw one gun .. there could have been multiple guns .. seeing one gun is enough to fire back at those behind that gun.
I believe the grand jury made the right call, all aspects of the situation considered.
