In Kentucky, a member of the grand jury that heard evidence in the case of Breonna Taylor’s killing says jurors were never given the opportunity to consider homicide charges against the Louisville police officers who shot Taylor to death as they served a no-knock warrant in Taylor’s home last March. In a statement issued through their lawyer, the anonymous juror wrote, “The grand jury didn’t agree certain actions were justified, nor did it decide the indictment should be the only charges in the Breonna Taylor case. The grand jury was not given the opportunity to deliberate on those charges.” The juror released the statement after a judge issued a ruling Tuesday allowing jurors to speak publicly.
