Brett Hankison Says Breonna Taylor Doesn’t Need To Die

Police Detective Fires Louisville Brett HankisonThe 45-year-old gave emotional testimony on Wednesday, insisting he did nothing wrong when he opened fire in the tragic shootings of 2020, of which 26 years old Breonna Taylor.

“And Miss Taylor’s family, that’s just – She didn’t have to die that night,” Hankison said from the stands.

The prosecutor raised an objection. The judge ordered a sidebar.

Taylor’s Mother Tamika Palmer ran out of court after Hankison said this.

Taylor died on March 13, 2020 when police in Louisville, Kentucky, executed a search warrant for her apartment as part of an investigation into her ex-boyfriend. Her then boyfriend Kenneth Walker opened fire on police after they broke in. He said he didn’t know they were policemen. Hankison, detective Myles Cosgroveand Sgt. Jon Mattinglywhom Walker hit in the leg, opened fire.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R) says that the FBI determined Cosgrove fired the fatal bullet, but only Hankison was shot and faces a charge of endangerment because his bullet entered a nearby apartment. However, at least three grand jurors said prosecutors did not bring other charges. They put Cameron on duty for his press conference in which he said Cosgrove and Mattingly were right to fire back.

Hankison is accused of starting a blind fire into a couple’s home Chelsey Napper and Cody Etherton, and their children. No one in the family was injured. Napper was pregnant.

During Wednesday’s in-person checkup, Hankison insisted he had “sincere sympathy” for the pair.

“If my daughter was shot, bullets entered our house, that would be very disturbing, and I apologize to her for that,” he said.

The search warrant on Taylor’s apartment was a restraining order, but a police sergeant testified earlier that the original restraining order was actually summed up as a restraining order and notice. Hankison testified that Sgt. Matting banged loudly on the door of Taylor’s apartment during the late-night incident.

Hankison cryptically repeated, “police, search warrant,” Hankison said. It was too noisy, one upstairs neighbor complained about it. However, he said they received no response from Taylor’s apartment, so they decided to use a hammer to break down the door.

He said when he went inside, he saw a large flashing muzzle and could feel the percussion from the lightning. He said he initially believed someone was shooting at them with a rifle. (Walker owns a shotgun.) Mattingly goes down.

“I believe he said, ‘I got hit by a bullet,’ or ‘I failed,’ one person or another,” Hankison testified. Hankison described Mattingly as a friend.

He didn’t know if Cosgrove or Mattingly were returning fire, he said. Hankison testified seeing more footage, and described a chaotic situation.

“I know Sgt. he said. “And I know they are trying to reach him. And I see that they are being executed with this rifle. “

Hankison testified that he returned fire through the sliding glass door, aiming for the beams of the muzzle. At the time, it is unknown how many times he opened fire, he said.

“Tragedy,” he said, when asked how he feels about what happened that night. “It was not necessary to happen. My opinion is that certain actions–”

The prosecution objected. The judge upheld it.
