Third grand juror in Breonna Taylor case wants to speak out

A third grand juror in the Breonna Taylor case plans to speak out about the controversial deliberations that cleared three Louisville cops of any criminal liability in the 26-year-old emergency room tech’s death, according to reports.

The announcement comes just three days after two other jurors spoke out for the first time on “CBS This Morning”, calling Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron a “liar” for suggesting the 12-member panel signed off on clearing the cops.

“After much reflection, Anonymous Grand Juror #3 has joined Anonymous Grand Jurors #1 and #2 in promoting truth and transparency regarding the Breonna Taylor case,” Kevin Glogower, the attorney for the other two panel members, said in a statement, WWBT-TV reported.

Glogower said the third juror “firmly supports the fact that no additional charges were allowed at the conclusion of service.

“The legal team for the three Grand Jurors will continue to protect their anonymity and aid them in the courageous efforts.”

Taylor was shot and killed during a botched police raid on her home on March 13.

The grand jury indicted since-fired Detective Brett Hankison on weapons charges for firing into a neighboring apartment but cleared him, Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, and Detective Myles Cosgrove of any blame for Taylor’s death.

Cameron defended the decision in an interview Thursday, saying “it was not our judgment that there should be other charges that the grand jury should be advised of,” adding that the jurors were free to bring up other questions or other issues,” according to ABC News.
