9:03 pm
force just a few hours after the announcement we talked to some protesters in downtown louisville where people have been gathering for months has not right. it's not right out of the houses would be arrested we didn't get justice today, honestly was not surprised i think that all what we saw today. >>it is historic of how black folks have been treated in our nation and ben crump attorney for taylor's family writing on twitter quote if brett hankinson behavior constituted wanton endangerment to people in neighboring apartments. then it should also be considered wanton endangerment a briana in fact it should have been ruled wanton murder attorney general cameron saying the investigation took months with interviews as recent as last friday, the case then presented on monday so news nation asked how long the grand jury deliberated how long did they deliver a today began on monday or to begin tuesday. and that was of this week correct. i will that they started. >>early monday. in some time.
9:04 pm
before and so they heard everything they needed to hear the attorney general says it's unlikely there will be any additional charges related to the shooting and adds that he understands that some people in the community may be hurting criminal law is not meant. >>to respond to every sorrow and grief and that is that is true here. my heart breaks. >>for the loss of miss taylor. >>one in danger of it is a felony that carries a punishment of up to 5 years in prison and a possible $10,000 fine now i can tell you the governor has authorized a limited deployment of the national guard and the mayor has imposed a curfew which begins at 09:00pm out here that's eastern time. the cold early news nation reporting in louisville, kentucky. >>a lot to unpack here for more now on today's grand jury ruling we're joined by
9:05 pm
attorney paula canny up all at the decision of course leaving the family all kinds of people confused heartbroken very angry was justice served. >>well in my opinion, no justice was not served but justice is a process. it's a it's a difficult situation. i mean what you've got to understand about this process as attorney general cameron was the one presenting the case to the grand jury. what is presented to the grand jury usually results in the grand jury issuing indictments for one d prosecutor wide send the a charge for so clearly prosecute their attorney general cameron had already decided before he started presenting evidence that all see it was going to seek charges for was reckless
9:06 pm
endangerment. i mean it was a complicated case and there are so many things wrong with the criminal justice system are shown by this. they got a search warrant to do a search at night on a person's residence over drug packages and they began it by not announcing their presence is police officers and breaking the door down with a battering ram i mean that crazy flat out crazy and then. you know that they didn't charge for shooting all of the officer shot their guns, i mean, and the forensic still have not been released we still don't know which fire arm. struck the fatal blow temp briana taylor. i mean the whole thing is just a not well done it seems to have an appearance propriety i mean even the fact that the attorney general took
9:07 pm
it over from the louisville district attorney to initiate the prosecution is troubling because i mean there are political overtones this particular deputy attorney general is one of the people on president trump's list to replay throughs bader ginsburg. so you know his republican there definitely are political overtones to this trump has him praise for our he's handled this and good prosecutor easily could have presented sufficient evidence to at the very least how the grand jury returned an indictment or manslaughter negligent homicide implied malice murder or even in this case, reckless endangerment with a firearm and the other thing is yes isn't about money, but it's a super low level felony. the arrest warrant issued by the jury to
9:08 pm
give you a sense of how low level what is was only $15,000 and officer fired officers already been. >>you know booked and released. >>paula branded taylor's death has become part of the national narrative since george floyd's death about the treatment of people of color by police and now this it in your mind is there any reason to believe that. police reform of any kind. we'll come because of this. >>well i want to hope there has to a police reform and there has to be criminal justice reform and there has to be you know warm about how we do so much of what we do i mean so many people make mistakes uh district attorney's signed off on the not only what was the probable cause for the warrant, but the
9:09 pm
method of execution that judge signed off on that as well these officers then went and use that battering ram so even as the simplest things in terms of you know how you execute a search warrant. we have to take a look at that and not doing this for that years, crazy and that's a remnant of the war on drugs which should sell you know wasn't really a racially motivated thing all you have to do back is go back to the sentencing differential between crack cocaine and powder cocaine crack cocaine having greater sentence is that about her cocaine because. people believe people of color you more than the white people use powder in terms of you know use of force policies as a country not just as the state attorney can talking but absolutely as a country we have establish a uniform use of force policy
9:10 pm
for the but because what is permissible on in kentucky is not permissible another state and meet other great irony of this is so many of the use of force. policies and procedures are actually problem gated cried cried the companies as opposed to legislative bodies. so it is so ironic that the police who seek to enforce all these roles are really probably the most unregulated of any of the main government and cities under so to be regulated. some know it's time more politicians on all of us to set rules and regulations to control the conduct. now the police not just more the safety of citizens, but for the safety of officers. i mean this was a super dangerous incident for for everybody
9:11 pm
involved it's just that no police officers and this instead. you know got hurt so now i'm an optimist and i believe that saw i believe that this is the beginning of a or movement where we you know deep parts where we don't treat everything as a criminal justice problem and the election of chess game that some people are you know we're upset about in san francisco. they're making real. you know efforts. 2 you know reform all aspects of the criminal justice system some know i'm going to be an optimist and i'm gonna leave that is sad as this is. >>it isn't going to stay this way it we will. you know i i won justice will prevail in all take a lesson from you know a lot of the druze bader ginsburg who did things with fervor and commitment and grayson i i believe that we
9:12 pm
can do that as a people and i also want to say you know violence against violence isn't going to do anything and so now i believe that where and people with lots of great people in yeah we're going to have meaningful reform all right we're going to have to end on that all great insights and certainly we'll be talking about this for quite some time. >>i asked for joining u.s. attorney thank you so much tonight families who have had their own loved ones killed at the hands of law enforcement. >>called 2 days the situation frustrating but not necessarily shocking our kron four's jonathan mccall is live for us tonight in the newsroom with the pain that they're dealing with tonight, jonathan grant vicki you know what these families know all too well the pain that briana taylor's family is dealing with. >>that's because they've had their own loved one shot and killed by law enforcement, but no one held accountable in the deaths they say today's decision is not justice and is
9:13 pm
just part of the system that continues to target and rob african americans of their rights. >>it's a tight knit family where the members have been forced together through tragedy. each of them losing a loved one at the hands of law enforcement and now that the news that the officers who killed breonna taylor won't be directly charged with her death. don't causing them to reopen and relive their own pain for its people are. >>has been brought to her account and very much as 13 and i hope more people open their eyes and see how. >>i read this problem and through virtual call wednesday evening, they tried to console in healed one another from the news that they say is disappointing but not shocking kat brooks in says taylor's death is a clear cut sign that more needs to be done to protect black women who are also killed by police in staggering since the year 2015 a black women who we just make up 13% of the female population we've accounted for

9:15 pm
to actually push out some of these fools who are it because we have political power to the state capitol. they did just you know they they just haven't they just haven't done their job. >>it should be noted that earlier this month, san leandro officer bryan fletcher was charged with manslaughter in the april shooting death of steven taylor. fletcher is actually the first officer here in the bay area to be charged in connection with the deadly shooting as early a protest is set for tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock in oakland for breonnataylor it will be held at a mural for her that's located at 15th and broadway. but tonight in the newsroom jonathan mccall kron 4 news. >>thank you jonathan and our coverage on the decision in breonna taylor's case continues throughout the night and at kron 4 dot com. there you can watch the kentucky attorney general's full announcement as well as a timeline of briana taylor's case and reaction to today's decision it's off kron 4 dot com. >>burglaries in san francisco
