Nancy Pelosi gave her response to the Grand Jury ruling of the Breonna Taylor case that found the involved police officers innocent of any wrongdoing. She started by saying that justice had been denied to Breonna and then said, “Just think if it were your daughter or your sister, your cousin, your relative, your friend, who was murdered by the police and there was no – the charging decision held no one accountable for her death.”
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said that there is no doubt that what happened to Breonna was a tragedy, but that his job as the special prosecutor for the case was to focus on facts, pursue the truth, and put everything else aside.
He said, “My job is to present the facts to the grand jury, and the grand jury then applies those facts to the law. If we simply act on emotion or outrage, there is no justice. Mob justice is not justice. Justice sought by violence is not justice – it just becomes revenge. And in our system, criminal justice isn’t the quest for revenge. It’s the quest for truth, evidence, and facts, and the use of that truth as we fairly apply our laws.”
Speaker Pelosi has zero regard or concern for facts and truth in this case, she only wanted the narrative that police are violent killers to be propagated further. The police were found innocent of any wrongdoing, that should be celebrated because it proves that those officers aren’t corrupt but they were doing their job. A job that brings so much danger and they have every right to protect themselves. The fact remains that the police announced their presence, Kenneth Walker opened fire knowing it was the police, and officers returned fire to protect themselves, if they hadn’t those officers would be dead too. The fact remains that the police did their job and the truth remains that they did it right and have every right to defend themselves, just as much as anyone else.
“Our reaction to truth today says what kind of society we want to be. Do we really want the truth, or do we want a truth that fits our narrative? Do we want the facts, or are we content to blindly accept our own version of events? We as a community must make this decision.”Daniel Cameron
