(Headline USA) Breonna Taylor‘s family and their lawyers sharply criticized Kentucky‘s attorney general for the failure to bring charges against police officers in her death, calling Friday for him to release the transcripts of the grand jury proceeding while vowing to continue their protests until the officers are charged.
Ben Crump, a lawyer for the family, urged the prosecutor to make the transcripts public, so people can see if anyone was present at the grand jury proceedings to give a voice to Taylor.
Gov. Andy Beshear, a Democrat, has also called for Cameron to release what evidence he can.
Taylor, a black woman, was shot multiple times by officers after Taylor’s boyfriend fired at them, authorities said.
He said he fired in self-defense, wounding one officer.
Police, who announced themselves, were conducting a drug investigation and entered on a warrant connected to a suspect who did not live there, and no drugs were found inside.
Cameron has said the investigation showed officers acted in self-defense.
The grand jury charged one officer, who has already been fired, with firing into a neighboring apartment.
The FBI is still investigating whether Taylor’s civil rights were violated, and some have put their hope in that probe, but the burden of proof for such cases is very high.
