All along, the BLM crowd has been screaming that Breonna Taylor was an innocent person who was gunned down illegally by police during a no-knock raid on the wrong home. I believed them, and this was one of the few times that I saw eye to eye with them. 

Until this morning, when I ran across this story from Blue Lives Matter

I was facing a conundrum- I had two narratives from two different sources, both with reasons to spin the story. So I went to local news sources. Reading this, it appears like Breonna Taylor was involved heavily in the drug trade. 

In fact, the car that contained this murder victim was rented by Breonna Taylor. The victim had been shot to death before crashing into a telephone pole. 

The mayor of Louisville is angry that the documents were leaked, claiming that the police must have leaked them to sway public opinion and influence the investigation. So what? The mayor himself has attempted to sway the investigation and hurt the police. It’s about time that the cops get to tell their side of things. Note that the mayor doesn’t deny that the documents are truthful, he merely questions the timing of their release. 

The Louisville Urban League, who has been leading the protests proclaiming that Taylor was an innocent woman gunned down by police, had this to say: 

“What we want to say back is it doesn’t justify her death.”

The fact that they lied about her innocence tells me that there is more to this story. If you have the truth on your side, why lie?

Breonna Taylor was involved in the illegal distribution of drugs, and is involved in some way with at least one murder. Her ex-boyfriend was driving her car while buying and selling drugs. She was handling large amounts of drug money- at least $29,000 in cash. 

Did she deserve to die? No. 

Was she tied to the illegal narcotics trade? Yes.

Was she most likely a criminal? Yes.

Were the police to blame for her death? No. That distinction goes to Taylor and her criminal activities.

So there has been a claim that the warrant was not for that location.

Any info that supports or debunks that claim?

It's USAToday, but they seem pretty sure that it was a good warrant.

BC – The police were serving warrants on 4 locations associated with her ex-boyfriend (who she was still seeing and still working with/for.)

One location was where Ms. Taylor was at, because ex-boyfriend was known to be there occasionally. Plus, Ms. Taylor was part of his criminal organization.

Innocent, not.

Plus, the cops did announce as they went in. Then the boyfriend shot at the cops, hitting one. Then a shootout occurred, and Taylor was hit.

No, no-one deserves to die during a warrant.

But… how to not die during a warrant? Don't do what gets a warrant served on you or your location.

Not doing what gets a warrant served hasn't saved any of the numerous innocents murdered by police on illegal raids. And while I'm willing to admit that the Breonna Taylor case is a lot more complicated than it was painted as, I am legit beyond the point of caring when jackbooted thugs and criminal scumbags shoot each-other up. Although I'll admit to a slight bit of bias on account of living in Oregon (though not in Portland, thank God).

Have you ever experience the cops when the "announce"?

I have.

they mumble "police" at a conversational level, then kick down (or otherwise break down) the door while shouting quite loudly, so loudly that they are incomprehensible, and rush in.
So don't think that :announcing: amounts to much. At 3 Am I'd probably shoot too.

As far as her innocence, that is another story.

B, yes I have. Because of someone I let rent a room because I felt sorry for them. And then there was the time the cops did it because of fuckery by the in-laws who 'stayed' for 2 weeks and finally left 2 years later.

Both incidents almost cost me a job. But I was able to point out my cooperation and how I dealt with the issue and showed that, though I was a dumb-ass, I was on the right side of the law.
