please link your postal inspector stuff. I will have to reread the warrant again. You obviously have zeroexpereince as a lawyer or law enforcement because you do not understand applicable law.That's simple. Haven't you been paying attention??
They lied in several ways. For example:
The Castle Doctrine is predicated upon two key rulings by the USSC: the 1995 Wilson v. Arkansas case, and the 1997 Richards v. Wisconsin case.
- -In the warrant, they claimed that the US Postal Inspector had been consulted, and had informed the LMPD that the suspect (an old boyfriend of Taylor) had been "receiving packages" at Taylor's address. We now KNOW, for a FACT, that the US Postal Inspector has stated, on the record, that he was NEVER consulted by the LMPD...and that there was NEVER any package sent to the suspect at Taylor's address.
- -They claimed, without ANY evidence, that Taylor was a drug dealer and distributor. Taylor had no criminal record, no history of violence and worked as a nurse. Taylor's boyfriend, who lived with her, had no record and was starting a new job at the post office. "No Knock" and "Knock and Announce" warrants must BY LAW be predicated upon evidence that the suspects are violent or are likely to destroy evidence. The LMPD warrant presented no evidence that Taylor or her boyfriend were violent, nor that they were even likely to possess drugs.
The FACTS of the case are that the LMPD banged on the door for "30-45 seconds"....NOT enough time to meet the legal standards of "enough time for the occupants to answer the door peacefully and avoid the potential violence and destruction of property of a forced entry".
The FACTS of the case also reveal that the cops who busted through the door were PLAIN CLOTHES cops with NO identifying badges or garments...NOT uniformed officers. So when Taylor's boyfriend fired one shot at them, he was ABSOLUTELY within his rights to protect himself. That's why the Attempted 1st Degree Murder of an Officer charges were quickly and quietly dropped.
The FACTS also show that the LMPD tried to get Taylor's boyfriend to LIE and testify that his now-dead girlfriend was secretly a drug dealer.
Sorry, but anyone...ANYONE...still defending (or rationalizing) on behalf of the LMPD or the KY AG in the Breonna Taylor case....is just not very credible. The details are all out there by now, so it's odd to see anyone (even conservatives) still raising some of these bogus issues. There is really no defense for what the LMPD did to Taylor, regardless of anything the KY AG said yesterday. His press conference was just a disgrace.
