Louisville Metro Police Department officer, Jonathan Mattingly is currently being investigated for Breonna Taylor death. Mattingly sent an email out to over 1000 employees in the department claiming that the officers did the right thing that night.

“I know we did the legal, moral and ethical thing that night. It’s sad how the good guys are demonized, and the criminals are canonized.”

Mattingly also called protestors thugs, complains about the government enforcing civil rights violations, and claims this is “good versus evil.” The emails that Mattingly sent out to 1000 LMPD staff was acquired by Roberto Ferdman.

Breonna Taylor was an innocent woman who was gunned down by the police on March 13, 2020. Mattingly and his colleagues Brett Hankinson, 44, and Myles Cosgrove, 42, raided Breonna Taylor‘s apartment in southwest Jefferson County in Kentucky, United States.

Louisville police entered the apartment of Breonna Taylor and Kenneth Walker using a battering ram to force open the door. The police were investigating two men they believed were selling drugs. The Taylor/Walker home was included in a “no-knock” search warrant, signed by Jefferson County Circuit Judge Mary M. Shaw, reportedly based on representations by police that one of the men used the apartment to receive packages. The New York Times later reported that before the raid the order had been changed to a “knock and announce” warrant, meaning that the police were required to identify themselves. The suspected drug dealer had allegedly been seen walking into Taylor’s apartment one January afternoon with a USPS package before leaving and driving to a known drug house, and the warrant said a US Postal Inspector confirmed that the man had been receiving packages at the apartment. Postal Inspector Tony Gooden has said that his office had told police there were no packages of interest being received there.

Louisville police stated that they announced themselves while entering the home after knocking several times and saying they were Louisville police officers with a search warrant. Neighbors and Taylor’s family dispute this, saying there was no announcement and that Walker and Taylor believed someone was breaking in, causing Walker to act in self-defense. Walker said in his police interrogation that Taylor yelled multiple times, “Who is it?” after hearing a loud bang at the door, but received no answer, and that he then armed himself. Walker, a licensed firearm carrier, shot first, striking a police officer in the leg. In response, the officers opened fire with more than 20 rounds, hitting objects in the living room, dining room, kitchen, hallway, bathroom, and both bedrooms. Taylor was shot at least eight times and pronounced dead at the scene. No drugs were found in the apartment. According to anonymous sources who spoke to WAVE3 News, one of the three officers allegedly fired blindly from the exterior of the residence, through a window with closed blinds and curtains; the sources said they do not believe Taylor was struck by any of the bullets fired by the officer who was outside.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron won’t do his job. It’s been over six months since Taylor death and not one officer involved has been arrested for her death. It seems like they are doing everything to try to cover up these cops vicious murder. They even went as far to offer a plea deal to Breonna Taylor’s ex-boyfriend Jamarcus Glover which would have required him to say that Taylor was part of his drug operation. The family’s attorney shared a picture of a plea deal on Facebook.

Interim Chief of Police Robert Schroeder declared a state of emergency for the Louisville Metro Police Department on Monday. The department has also canceled all off-day and vacation requests “until further notice.” The announcement comes ahead of Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s announcement in the Breonna Taylor case.
