DAILY MAIL – Police who shot dead Breonna Taylor say they knocked on her apartment door three times and waited about one minute before saying ‘let’s go, let’s breach’, secret grand jury testimony reveals.

About 20 hours of audio from the grand jury proceedings related to the Taylor case was released on Friday. Grand juries typically meet in secret and releasing testimony and other evidence from their proceedings is rare.

A court, however, ruled that the content of the proceedings should be released and ordered Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, whose office led the investigation, to release the audio files.

‘We knocked on the door, said police, waited I don’t know 10 or 15 seconds. Knocked again, said police, waited even longer,’ Louisville, Kentucky, police Lt. Shawn Hoover said in an interview recorded March 13 – the same date Taylor was shot – and later played for the grand jury.

‘So it was the third time that we were approaching, it had been like 45 seconds if not a minute,’ Hoover said. ‘And then I said, ‘Let’s go, let’s breach it’.’

Officers had a ‘no-knock’ warrant to search Taylor’s apartment for drugs the night she was killed.

Cameron later said officers announced themselves.

It’s a key issue because the officers said they opened fire after Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired a gunshot at them.

So they had a no-knock warrant but proceeded to knock anyway. The fact that these officers knocked three times and waited a minute before breaching the door seems appropriate.

But I would suggest that is what put their lives in danger, giving time for Taylor’s boyfriend to get in a shooter’s stance waiting for police to enter. Remember, when officers breached the door, they said Breonna and her boyfriend were waiting for them at the end of the hall and her boyfriend was already in a shooter’s stance.

If these officers had just breached the door and entered without knocking and caught the couple by surprise, it seems to me that the chances of a shootout might have been greatly diminished and Taylor might still be alive.

Whatever you think about that, these officers clearly weren’t to blame for Breonna’s death. That alone belongs to her boyfriend and these idiot BLM protesters need to admit that.
