Charles Barkley spoke on Breonna Taylor decision tonight during TNT’s NBA pregame show.
Breonna Taylor was killed in March during a drug raid gone wrong. The only charges brought forth Wednesday were wanton endangerment against a former officer Brett Hankinson for shooting into a home next to Taylor’s home.
Barkley says you can’t put the Breonna Taylor case in the same situation as George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery because her boyfriend shot at the police.
Look at Charles Barkley using his platform to insinuate Breonna Taylor’s murder was somehow justified. Chuck, if you have no value to add then please get out of the way. pic.twitter.com/HOXLL6QOzE

Barkley went on to also speak against the notion of defunding the police which has become a staple of the Black Lives Matter movement.
