FBI nonetheless investigating if there have been civil rights violations in Breonna Taylor case

Ky. (WBKO) – Attorney General Daniel Cameron had a full first year in office.

Perhaps most significant is his handling of the Breonna Taylor case, in which the grand jury did not indict anyone directly for Taylor’s death.

Taylor was killed in a police raid in March 2019, and her death sparked a national movement and many protests.

Former Louisville officer Brett Hankison was the only one of the three officers charged by a grand jury on three cases of willful first-degree endangerment for blindly shooting in Taylor’s three-person apartment, next door. If convicted, Hankison could face up to 15 years in prison.

This finding had continued protests in the streets as people wanted more indictment, and especially indictment of Taylor’s death.

Another special prosecutor on the case was recently turned down.

Meanwhile, Cameron said the case is still being investigated at the federal level for civil rights violations.

“The breadth of experience we have here with over 200 years of combined experience with our career investigators and prosecutors, and we have relationships with the federal law enforcement community. That helped us as we went through this case and, in fact, the FBI is still leading the investigation into possible civil rights violations. “
