News of the Day: Confirmed, Kentucky AG did not recommend murder charges in Breonna Taylor case

Over the weekend, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron publicized the grand jury recordings of the Breonna Taylor investigation.

The decision comes after an anonymous juror requested such recordings be released. According to CBS News, the juror was prompted by “how Cameron presented the grand jury’s findings last week.” In addition, they are petitioning for a release on all transcripts and reports. 

The 15 hours of recordings affirm Cameron never recommended murder charges, which explains why Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the officers who fired shots at Taylor, were not indicted. 

“I’m confident that once the public listens to the recordings, they will see that our team presented a thorough case to the Jefferson County Grand Jury, Cameron said of the release. 

Color of Change, a racial injustice organization, called Cameron’s failure to bring murder charges the week prior “a second injustice against Breonna Taylor.” 

The tapes offered an array of revelations. Among others, this included that there was no master plan for the search and that Cosgrove described a loss of senses. The FBI reported Cosgrove fired the bullet that killed Taylor. 

In a big moment for live television, Saturday Night Live premiered their new season on Saturday night. Musical guest Megan thee Stallion gave a riveting performance that called to protect Black women and criticized Cameron. “We need to protect our Black women and love our Black women. Cause at the end of the day, we need our Black women,” she said.
