A former detective with the Louisville police department has been indicted on felony charges of wanton endangerment after shooting into the apartments next door to Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old EMT who was killed in her own home by police.
Brett Hankison, who was fired in June, is facing three felony counts and bail was set at $15,000. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Two other officers involved in the shooting, Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove, were justified in their use of force, state Attorney General Daniel Cameron said at news conference. All three fired their weapons at Taylor's apartment.

We need to see the bodycams, that much is a given.
That being said, fuck the opportunistic rioters. Four fucking months of this bullshit and it's amounted to nothing but plummeting approval ratings for BLM and further galvanizing Trump's base. Enjoy four more years, I guess.
