About the well-publicized death of Breonna Taylor by police bullets in Louisville, Kentucky, the Cultural Left says the raid on Taylor’s apartment in which she was tragically killed was actually at the wrong apartment. As with just about everything the Cultural Left says about all these cases, this is one more flat-out lie.
I read the 12-page search warrant for the raid on Breonna’s apartment. They definitely had adequate probable cause for a raid.
The raid was at the right house.
The main drug dealer in the investigation, her ex, was seen leaving her house with a UPS package and driving to the drug house with it. He was receiving all of his mail at her address, mail which included these packages that he was taking to the drug house. On another occasion, police observed the ex come to Breonna’s apartment and look behind some rocks. He pulled out a package that was hidden behind the rocks. He got in his car and drove with the package to the drug house where he was dealing cocaine and heroin.
There were obviously drugs in both of those packages. The ex listed her apartment as his residence, and he was no doubt getting UPS packages of drugs sent to her residence, picking them up, and driving them to the drug house.
Breonna was obviously allowing her place to be used as a place for her ex to receive drugs via the mail to take over to the drug house. Also, her vehicle was seen at the drug house where her ex was selling drugs on multiple occasions. She herself was seen at the drug house on multiple occasions.
Breonna got mixed up with this ex, Javarious, and he took her down a dark path. He was a drug dealer the whole time she was with him and
afterwards too. At one time Breonna was a suspect in a homicide investigation because a the body of a murdered man was found slumped over the steering wheel in her vehicle. Turns out she had loaned the car to Javarious, who loaned it to someone else, then the someone else person ended up being caught up in an apparent drug-related homicide.
Breonna visited Javarious many times at jail and often sent him packages there. She also took a lot of calls from him in the jail. Javarious complained to friends that Breonna still had $8-15,000 of his money. That has to be drug money he’s talking about. So she was holding his dope money for him too.
The Cultural Left just made up this lie about the wrong house, and they never talked about the drug dealing.
The police did indeed knock loudly and announce their presence. The police said they did so multiple times, and a neighbor heard them do it once. Breonna’s boyfriend said he never heard police announcing their presence. He thought it was Javarious coming back to bash in the door and invade the home. However, he was on good terms with Breonna, so he would not have done that.
He armed himself with a handgun and he and Breonna made their way to the hallway with a view of the door. They were both spread out on the floor of the hallway. The boyfriend was pointing his gun at the door. She was stretched out right next to him. The police burst in the door and the boyfriend started shooting. One shot hit a police officer in the leg. That officer then returned fire, an act that was proper and just. Tragically, Breonna was killed by eight bullets. The boyfriend may have been wounded.
Yes, Breonna was a ghetto Black, but I don’t think all ghetto Blacks are bad people. A lot of them are but a lot of others are more or less ok. I wouldn’t want to associate with them, but they aren’t flat-out evil. Breonna Taylor was neither a good person nor a bad person. She did some good things in life, and she did some bad things, too.
Mostly she made a terrible mistake getting involved with a dangerous Black drug dealer and getting all wrapped up in his drug dealing game. You hang around ghetto Black drug houses all the time and get involved with these ghetto Black drug dealers who live lives where homicide is never far away, and you might just end up dead. That’s a dangerous life to live.
The death of Breonna Taylor was simply a tragic error if the boyfriend is correct that they did not hear the police announce their presence. However the police did nothing wrong, and this was no “police murder” of an innocent Black person. It was simply a tragic error. She also set herself up with an incident like this by getting deeply involved with a ghetto Black drug dealer. And if she herself was involved in the dealing, which looks like it may be the case, then she’s not so innocent after all. She still didn’t deserve to die, but she was also no angel.
Most of these Blacks getting killed by police frankly deserve what they got. However, I do not feel that way about Breonna Taylor. But neither was it some evil racist White policeman murdering another poor Black person.
