USA: Police officers involved in Breonna Taylor case sacked

Louisville, Kentucky Police Department on Tuesday fired two police officers implicated in the case of Breonna Taylor, the African American woman whose death in a robbery became a rally for the Black Lives Matter movement. “@LMPD (will) be quitting Constable Joshua Jaynes. He filed the search warrant that led to the tragic murder of #BreonnaTaylor,” tweeted Ben Crump, an attorney for Taylor’s family. He also shared with Jaynes a letter of resignation from acting Louisville Police Chief Yvette Gentry. An attorney for Detective Myles Cosgrove, another officer involved in the raid, told the US media that his client had also received discharge papers. Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency worker, was shot and killed six times after police rushed into her home with her boyfriend on March 13. Police said friend Kenneth Walker shot her once, which they retaliated, killed Taylor but did not hit Walker. None of the three raid officers were charged with his death. Detective Brett Hankison was released by police in June and charged with “unsubstantiated compromise” in September for brutally and indiscriminately shooting at neighboring homes during the robbery.
