8:13 AM PT — Civil rights attorney Ben Crump opened the press conference with a fiery speech calling out Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron and all the apparent discrepancies between the evidence he presented to the grand jury and evidence that’s been widely reported.
This led to a very public call for Cameron to release the grand jury transcripts, and Crump’s co-counsel, Lonita Baker, echoed that demand and took it a step further … by questioning whether the grand jury actually decided not to charge the officers who fatally shot Breonna, or if Cameron made the call himself.
Breonna Taylor’s family is set to address the public for the first time since it was announced only one of the 3 cops involved in her case was being charged … and NOT for killing her.
Breonna’s mom, Tamika Palmer, is holding a press conference outside Louisville City Hall. It’s unclear if the family will take questions.
As we reported … on Thursday, the grand jury indicted now ex-officer, Brett Hankison, on charges of wanton endangerment. Hankison was not charged for the shooting of Breonna, but for firing his weapon into Breonna’s neighbor’s apartment.
The incident has sparked outrage across the country in the form of protests and angry words from celebs, athletes and politicians.
Family attorney Ben Crump told us he had some concerns about what the AG presented during the grand jury proceedings … and that the evidence should’ve led to more charges.
