In light of today’s indictment of former Officer Brett Hankinson1, who admitted to blindly firing in the direction of the shots that were fired towards him, I can only assume rioting is inevitable considering there were no charges directly linked to Breonna Taylor’s death. The former police officer was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment.
These charges were not acceptable, whether or not other charges are warranted according to people like known antisemitic activist Linda Sarsour2, who are trying to incite rioting and unrest. Therefore, I feel it is my duty to give everyone the opportunity to have all of the facts of the case that led to the midnight raid of Taylor’s residence. There is much misinformation floating around the internet and the Legacy Media from things like her getting shot eight times while sleeping in her bed to the warrant being for someone else’s home to the police not knocking despite witness accounts3 saying they heard the police announce themselves.
These newly released documents4 are vital knowledge for We The People, and it is necessary that the actual facts are out there regarding the Breonna Taylor case5. Brought to you by Officer Brandon Tatum of The Tatum Report6, and prepared/submitted by Detective Kelley Goodlett, these official documents are impeccably prepared to be objectively informative about the facts leading up to and as a result of the officer-involved shooting. Here’s my breakdown of the untold truths behind the shooting of Breonna Taylor of Louisville, Kentucky.
Breonna’s History of Involvement in the Drug Game
☆In 2016, a dead body was found in a rental car4, that homicide detectives traced to Breonna Taylor. She claimed to not know of the victim, though he happened to be one of her then-boyfriend Glover’s partners in crime Bowman’s brother. The rental was registered to Taylor at her residence on Springfield Dr., however, she claimed Glover often drove the vehicle. The contact number she provided for the investigation was provided for police again on February 14, 2020, this time by Glover4.
☆In 2016 and 2017, Taylor put up cash and bailed Glover out of jail for unrelated misdemeanor and felony charges, records showing that once again, Glover provided his address as the residence on Springfield Dr.
☆Simultaneous search warrants were executed on December 30, 2019, on the two trap houses (Elliot Ave. and Mohammad Ali Blvd.) which led to the arrests of Glover and associates A. Walker, Forest, Lee, Crenshaw, and Knight4. As a result of the search warrants, law enforcement confiscated 7 firearms, nearly 5 grams of crack cocaine, a half-ounce of marijuana, and paraphernalia and surveillance equipment. The following day, after surveillance review, the detectives surmised that there was indeed an uptick in violence and narcotics-related crime that led straight to the house on Elliot Ave., and that the trap house was up and running within days of the raid. Less than a week later, Glover was seen making a drug deal on surveillance cameras set up by the police, getting out of the passenger’s side door of the vehicle; a vehicle that happened to belong to none other than Breonna Taylor. Glover consistently used her vehicle for drug deals (caught on camera), and he used her address as his own for banking and when giving contact information to police4.
☆ From Jan 1, 2020 to Jan 3, 2020 there were 48 calls made from the jail Glover was at to Breonna Taylor’s cellphone. 15 were made during booking, so not all transcripts were available, however 33 of the calls were made from Glover’s dormitory in the jail4.
☆ In the transcripts from contact between Taylor and Glover, from booking in January of 2020, she was clearly still involved with her ex-boyfriend with whom she had been trafficking narcotics, even exchanging “I love yous” and running his errands to his known drug dealing associates4. This can all be proved through transcripts of calls, texts, and video surveillance of her residence on Springfield (transcripts and still-shots in the provided documentation4). Also from the jail transcripts, Taylor is acknowledging his request for her to “just be on standby” to pick him up upon his release from jail. They also exchange more intimate insight into their relationship, where she appears to know he is with multiple women, and imply that they sleep together4.
☆The detectives continued their investigation on the trap house on Elliot Ave,, which enabled them to discover a 2017 red Dodge Charger driven by Glover for the trap house to re-up on crack cocaine intended for illegal distribution4. Unfortunately, when the officers attempted to follow the Charger, it performed evasive maneuvers to “heat test” the cops trailing him. Fortunately, this gave probable cause for law enforcement to get permission to put a GPS tracking device on the Charger, and they were able to clearly see the connection between the trap houses on Elliot Ave., Mohammad Blvd., and Taylor’s residence on Springfield Dr., the vehicle stopping at Taylor’s residence anywhere from 2 to 6 days between visits4.
☆ One of the dates where Glover entered the Taylor residence, he stayed just long enough to retrieve a package (surveillance photos provided in documentation4) and proceeded to drive directly to the trap house on Mohammad Ale Blvd. Further surveillance showed that following this suspicious transaction, there was heavy pedestrian and vehicular traffic at the house, staying for very brief periods of time; Glover and associates made frequent short errands to and from the trap house. Eventually, Glover made a short trip to another town he had previous narcotics dealings, in his home state of Mississippi4.
☆ Pole surveillance from February 13, 2020, installed by the investigative team at the house on Elliot Ave. shows, in another suspiciously brief 5-minute interaction at the residence, Taylor momentarily getting out of the passenger side of Taylors Black Dodge Charger driven by Glover. while waiting for him during one of the alleged drug deals4. She is seen on multiple occasions via video surveillance arriving at the house on Elliot Ave., staying only for a moment, at varying times throughout the day and night4.
☆The following day, February 14, 2020, the Red Charger was towed from the house on Mohammad Ali Blvd., and Glover once again supplying phone number and address contact information registered to Breonna Taylor. 10 days later the detectives received Glover’s subpoenaed Chase bank records which also listed the Springfield Dr. address as his own4.
What happened That Night
☆On March 13, 2020, the raid was conducted by the investigative team with the assistance of SWAT simultaneously at the trap houses on Springfield Dr., Elliot Ave,. and Mohammad Ali Blvd.; unfortunately the raid on Mohammad Ali Blvd was unable to proceed upon the announcement of the officer involved shooting of Breonna Taylor4.
☆At the trap house on Elliot Ave., none of the suspects attacked the police officers, and everyone ended the night unscathed. Arrests were made at the trap house after the police found large quantities of crack cocaine, fentanyl (found by K-9 officers in a Crown Royal bag in a tree), 4 illegal firearms, large quantities of cash, and digital scales and other paraphernalia indicating drug trafficking was taking place there. Detectives also caught photo evidence of a suspect attempting to dispose of cocaine in a toilet. Glover, Bowman, Lee, and Jones were arrested, and paperwork that could be used as proof of residence was found with A. Walker’s name on it4.
☆The raid of Breonna Taylor’s home had a much more tragic ending. The police had a no-knock search warrant, yet they claim and there is witness corroboration, that law enforcement knocked and announced themselves. K Walker dove out of harm’s way after firing upon the police, and Taylor, left standing alone in the hallway, was shot five times, and died. K Walker was not named on the search warrant because he was not under investigation in the drug trafficking case4.
☆According to a phone call Glover made from jail, retelling K Walker’s account of the night, “He [Kenneth Walker] said motherfuckers knocked on his door, but he didn’t know who it was. They asked who it is, but don’t nobody say nothin… He said they kicked that door and he “bocked” on them. He said they started shooting back, and Bre was in the hallway and she caught bullets,” he continued on to reference his attorney, “Scott know Bre, he know her, he been dealin with me and Bre the whole time I’ve been going through this shit”4
☆Breonna Taylor was NOT in bed sleeping, nor was she shot 8 times after police came in without knocking, guns a-blazing, and the criminals involved and in the know are aware of this. Even the boyfriend K Walker is under the understanding that he fired his legally-owned firearm and wounded an officer, causing them to returned fire3. In addition to that Taylor’s live-in boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, admitting he fired at the door because someone was knocking loudly and not responding when Taylor called out to ask who it was, and that allegedly led him to believe it was a burglar (it was the rare warning via knocking type burglar). This explicitly contradicts his statements that no one knocked before the door was rammed.
She Didn’t Need to Die
The most important takeaway to me for the cause of Breonna Taylor’s death was like Glover said repeatedly- you don’t shoot at the police! I believe Taylor would still be alive if K Walker had not fired after the police knocked on the door. Although she was knee-deep in the drug game4, I do not wish harm on anyone (except pedophiles and rapists), and it is a tragedy that she died because of her involvement in drug trafficking and her boyfriend’s improper judgment of shooting at the police. I feel for her family in their time of grief, and I am sorry that they are feeling the pain of losing someone they love. Although I understand the need for justice to be served and something bigger to be done, nothing will bring her back, including trying to unjustly charge police officers with murder.
It is so important that people wait for all of the facts to come out and actually educate themselves about what they plan on being outraged over. If you’ve gotten this far, give this report a read and get an even better understanding on what led to the death of Breonna Taylor.
