The man cops charged with attempt to murder a police officer during a botched raid in Kansas earlier this year had no clue the men breaking into the home were cops, according to the 911 call he made to police which was released today.
Charges had already been dismissed against Kenneth Walker, boyfriend of Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old nursing student who was killed during the botched raid on March 13.
“I don’t know what’s happening,” he says in the recording, sounding tearful and terrified. “Somebody kicked in the door and shot my girlfriend.”
The call lasts just two minutes before Walker hangs up, probably having already been arrested because when the dispatcher called back, there was no answer.
It took two-and-a-half months for the Louisville Metro Police Department to release the video because they knew it would exonerate the man they described as a “significant danger to the community we protect” after a judge released him to house arrest.
But that was a just a gaslighting attempt to place the blame on him for the crimes they committed, including obtaining the search warrant by lying to the judge.
The cops, Brett Hankison, Myles Cosgrove and John Mattingly, are under investigation by the FBI. Mattingly, who headed the operation, was shot in the thigh by Walker, who is a legal gun owner with no criminal record.
The main target of the police drug investigation was a man named Jamarcus Glover who Breonna Taylor had dated two years earlier and had maintained a “passive friendship” with him, according to attorney’s for the victim’s family.
In fact, another group of Louisville cops had already served another search warrant at Glover’s house that night which was ten miles away. He was already in custody by the time cops arrived at Taylor’s apartment.
Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit which you can read here.
