Louisville Metro Police Officer Shot During Riots Following Breonna Taylor Indictment

Louisville police riot fatal shooting

Earlier today, a grand jury indicted one Louisville Metro Police officer in connection with the shooting death of Breonna Taylor during a police raid earlier this year. The indictment handed down, though, was for reckless endangerment of people in surrounding apartments due to one officer’s gunfire. None of the three cops were indicted for Taylor’s death.

Protests in downtown Louisville have escalated of throughout the afternoon.

And tonight, someone opened fire on some of the assembled police officers, hitting one of them.

The night is still young and the mostly peaceful protesters seem determined to escalate the rioting whatever the cost.

UPDATE: NBC now reports that two police officers have been shot.

Update: This post has been corrected to remove a reference to the execution of a “wrong address” warrant. The warrant that was served did, in fact, list Breanna Taylor’s address. We regret the error.

      It’s ironic how a bunch of narrow minded fools march around and show their butts over some bad cops or cops that made a mistake, etc. When compared to the 200 plus years of race based atrocities that the democRat Party did to Blacks what is going on today with the police doesn’t even register.
      Even more ironic the marching fools are a voting block for their present and former democRat Party slave masters. Yesterday’s democRat slave master forced Blacks to pick cotton while today’s democRat Party slave master has gullible Black Americans harvesting votes.

      The democRat Party has clearly made a mess out of a lot of Blacks. Obviously Content of Character has been replaced with pure demoCrap. Frankly…A Black American being a member of the democRat Party makes as much sense as a Jew belonging to the nazi party.

      Nonetheless America is at a point to where if fools insist on continuing being fools then fools will have to be stopped one way or another.

        Normally its best to ignore people like Little Debbie but girl you need to learn history.
        Yes up until the 80’s southern Democrats were a mostly racist party. The northern ones were what the main democratic party is now. Just before the civil war they mostly split off and ran their own candidate for president, the northern Democrats had their own. . In the 40’s southern democrats did not want equality like the northern democrats so they formed the Dixiecrats and nominated Strom Thurman for president. They died out shortly after Truman was elected and their political leaders became Republicans. By the 90’s most of the southern democrats became republicans. While quite a few of the southern democrats were racist the northern were mostly liberal. The republican party now has most of the former southern democrats except the ones who identify as Blue Dogs. We find both parties somewhat repugnant. And quite a few of the southern republicans fit your description of the extinct southern democrats.

          Robert Byrd was KKK and was Hillary Clintons mentor.

          https://www.redstate.com/bonchie/2020/07/01/worlds-worst-fact-check-claims-democrats-didnt-start-the-civil-war-or-kkk/

          “In reality, the parties did not re-align to the extent that one can claim they switched places. How do I know? Because Republicans didn’t even start gaining consistent majorities in the south until the early 2000s. What actually happened? Old, racist FDR era Democrats died out and their children and grandchildren became Republicans over decades of change. There is no evidence there was a sudden switch between the parties in the mid-20th century. If that were true, we’d have never gotten Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton.”

          “Republicans voted more heavily for the Civil Rights Act than Democrats did. Republicans had also pushed far longer for its passage than Democrats did. “

        2. avatar Old Blue Dog says:

          Byrd later said joining the Klan was his “greatest mistake,”[and after his death, the NAACP released a statement praising Byrd, acknowledging his former affiliation with the Klan and saying that he “became a champion for civil rights and liberties” and “came to consistently support the NAACP civil rights agenda”.

          If it is the grandchildren who are now joining the Republican party they must all have Progeria as the vast majority at Trump rallies and out campaigning seem older.

          I voted for Trump last time as the democratic choice was a known bad choice.
          This time no way, I’ll vote for Biden with the hope enough republicans in the house replace democrats so there is just 1 or 2 more democrats than republicans and vice versa in the senate. That way neither party will be able to railroad stuff through without cooperation and Biden will be mostly neutered.

        Geoff, I am watching live. A microcosm of one lens doesn’t give a full overview. They also tend to focus on the sensational. No matter, it’s still ugly. BTW, how’s things down there in Polk County? From what I see you have a hell of a sheriff.

        1. avatar Geoff "The witch finally met her bucket of water" PR says:

          We had one (1) BLM ‘protest’ a few months back in a main intersection where a uniformed Antifa showed up stirring shit up like jumping on blocked cars in traffic.

          The city PD shut that down. Once Grady Judd got on the TV the next day and made this announcement, things quieted down.

          For some reason TTAG is dumping my comments with a URL in them. The ‘gist’ of his TV message was “People in Polk County like guns, and have guns. If burning or looting happens in your home, blow them back out of your house with your guns.”

          Their protest enthusiasm cooled greatly after that… 🙂

    1. avatar Ron says:

      Yep. If anyone’s noticed, in most of the south, there was a little rioting when this started, but it didn’t last long.

      Want to know why? Because the police weren’t ordered to back down and cede territory to an uprising. The rioters felt the pain of conflict and their buddies going to jail. This lead to them losing steam.

      1. avatar Ron says:

        I’ll add, I personally know of one southern departments outright policy on riots is “We always gain ground, and never give ground.” That mentality is very important in crushing this garbage. When faced real aggressive opposition these cowardly leftist terrorists fold like wet cheese.

      2. avatar ChoseDeath says:

        Absolutely Ron. I live in NC, and my local city had a little block or so radius that was a designated “Protest Zone.” No weapons, no bullshit tolerated. One time, one person actually fired a shot in the air trying to show how tough they were, and the police broke the sound barrier throwing his dumb ass in jail (and to be fair, he was not on the BLM (or equivalent) side). This was over our statue in the town square, an angel with a Confederate soldier, basically honoring the fallen in the Civil War. The protest side actually won this particular argument (peacefully, and with a local hearing before the city leaders, AS IT SHOULD BE DONE), and we moved the statue to the local Confederate cemetery. The mayor is a total POS, one of those “our local government would never work with ICE,” type people (and a fat black woman, coincidentally), prompting the local Sheriff and Police Chief to issue a statement that basically said “We were not consulted about nor do we condone anything in the Mayor’s statement. She’s talking entirely for herself.”

        Haha! Wet cheese, LMAO. How apropos a metaphor.

      The very THOUGHT of using .50BMG against crowds of mostly-peaceful protesters is simply AWFUL, and you should be ashamed.

      .303 British, .30-’06, or 7.62x54R are much better for crowd control–higher rate of fire in most cases, quieter, and less messy, not to mention the cost savings.

      A couple of properly-sited Vickers MkIs in enfilade, for example, can work wonders in modifying crowd behavior. One or two belts, enough to brew up a cuppa, should suffice for the average inner-city social gathering, don’t you think?

      Alas. . .

        Yes yes, but the wonderful thing about the larger bore is the mess. Holes in bodies are shocking to the uninitiated. Many, many start freaking out at limbs sheared straight off & large sections of torso evaporating into a mist. Wonderful deterrent that is against the unprepared.

        To whit, taking a cue from Lil’-un and his executions with AA guns. I’d submit that 20 – 40mm, whilst definitively less budget friendly from the initial glance, will end up being much less an expense than one would think. Plus, over penetration in a dense line in depth is a bonus, not a detraction. More for your money. :p

        And that when one of his curbside pharmaceutical vendors was arrested, he told somebody to go see Breonna, tell her he said to give you $7k for bail.

        I have not seen it alleged that they found thousands of dollars of drug money in her home after they killed her. I bet those Narcs are wishing they hadn’t pocketed all the drug money they found in her house. (yeah, my opinion of drug cops is best expressed by Tom Selleck in the movie An Innocent Man)

    These POS are always asking why do Police shoot people. Tonight is a prime example of Why???. When the Police become targets as they have over the last several years. They are reacting as anyone would when they are threatened. They shoot first and ask question later. Kentucky has Stand Your Laws and they apply to the Police as well as the citizens. You shoot they shoot.
    Kentucky is a Castle Doctrine state and has a “stand your ground” law. A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat. … Any person who uses a gun in self-defense has immunity from criminal and civil law.

          The question is, was there solid evidence she was storing money or drugs for her ex boyfriend, or was it just ‘she used to date this guy, so we get to raid her and find out if she’s his employee’?

          Unfortunately for the one who wrote the sworn statements the warrant was based upon, they had plenty of time to search the place after her death, and thus far have come up with nothing. It could very well have been two innocent people, one defending his home from armed home invaders, the other killed by an asshole cop who wildly sprayed bullets in a residential area (what he’s charged with, what every cop who shot at those newspaper carriers in Torrance should be charged with).

    These are neither riots nor peaceful demonstrations. This is a D.N.C. sanctioned Marxist Insurrection financed by the Nazi Collaborator Geo. Soros and his coven of Marxist Globalist Atheist Billionaires. It is a carefully choreographed war on our nation and it’s citizens. It is high time for President Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act and turn the Marines loose on these Marxist Insurrectionists. What we have here is the fulfillment of Joseph McCarthy’s warning to us all those decades ago.
