Kentucky: U.S. Postal Employee 'No Longer Employed' After 112 Ballots Found in Dumpster

A U.S. Postal Service employee is out of a job amid an investigation into over 100 absentee ballots discarded in a dumpster in Louisville, Kentucky. A contractor found the unopened 112 ballots while renovating a home in Jefferson County on Thursday. Additionally, two political flyers were discovered by special agents with the Postal Service Office of the Inspector General. “When the investigation is

People Are Angry Breonna Taylor Didn’t Get The Justice She Deserves

The grand jury indicted one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor but not for her murder. The former detective, Brett Hankison, was charged with reckless endangerment of Breonna Taylor’s neighbors. People are outraged saying this is not the justice Breonna Taylor deserves.  Brett Hankison was indicted on Wednesday for three counts of first-degree “wanton endangerment.” In Kentucky, wanton endangerment is a felony charge that could mean up to five years in prison. The other two officers involved in the shooting were not indicted.  The Anger I just realized that if every single bullet fired by the Louisville police department had hit Breonna Taylor, they would be facing zero charges. — I Smoked Trump's Coup (@Dknight10k) September 24, 2020 The police that murdered Breonna Taylor in her own home are getting off scot-free.

Well, according to the state law of Kentucky wanton endangerment in the first degree is considered a Class D felony. In Kentucky, people who are convicted of Class D felonies face up to 5 years in prison.  Kentucky law states, “A person is guilty of wanton endangerment in the first degree when, under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to value of human life, he wantonly engages in conduct which creates a substantial danger of death or serious physical injury to another person.”  The charges that Hankison is facing actually has absolutely nothing to do with Breonna Taylor. Judge Annie O’Connell read the charges stating the officer, “wantonly shot a gun,” into a neighbor’s apartment.  Daniel Cameron, Kentucky Attorney General, explained that there wasn’t enough convincing evidence to link Hankison’s shots to the ones that killed Breonna Taylor. Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired at the officers which according to the attorney general, justifies the return of fire.  Breonna Taylor Breonna Taylor was 26-years-old when she was killed. She was a ER technician with so many exciting plans for her future.  On March 13th, in her apartment in Louisville, Breonna Taylor was shot six times and bled out on the floor. The Kentucky Police had a ‘no-knock’ search warrant for Breonna Taylor’s apartment.  Her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, said he did not know it was police and opened fire.  There was a total of 32 shots fired by the police that night. Attorney General Cameron explained the F.B.I. laboratory concluded that the shot that was fatal was fired by Detective Cosgrove. However, a lab in Kentucky could not determine exactly who fired the fatal shot.   Sam Aguiar, a lawyer representing Taylor’s family, blames the police department’s failure. Aguiar stated, “ Breonna Taylor gets shot in her own home, with her boyfriend doing what’s as American as apple pie, in the defending himself and his woman.”  Cameron stated the investigation confirmed police had knocked and announced their presence properly before entering Taylor’s apartment. Walker and neighbors in interviews have said that they did not hear the police announce themselves.     President Trump commented on the matter stating, “I think it’s a sad thing, and I give my regards to the family,” Trump said. “I also think it’s so sad what’s happening with everything about that case, including law enforcement. So many people suffering.” The Aftermath  Breonna Taylor has become an icon for the racial injustice that the black community faces. Her name along with other victims like George Floyd and Jacob Blake have been the center of the Black Lives Matter protests.   It took several months for Breonna Taylor to get justice. Breonna Taylor’s family received a of 12 million dollars along with changes to prevent future deaths by officers. The agreement was annouced about the settlement of the wrongful-death lawsuit on September 15th.  Breonna’s law was created to stop the use of “no-knock” search warrants. The law states, “a Federal law enforcement officer 9 (as defined in section 115 of title 18, United States Code) 10 may not execute a warrant until after the officer provides 11 notice of his or her authority and purpose.”  The indictment that Hankison received is not justice for Breonna Taylor. Many people have continued to protest and say her name to get her the justice she derives. She was murdered in her own home and the officer was charged for the bullets he missed.  People are heartbroken to see this happen. They are tired and disappointed with the system that is broken. Many questioning if the officer wasn’t guilty of killing Breonna then why did her family receive a settlement for 12 million dollars in the wrongful-death lawsuit. How much is a life worth that this injustice is happening? Taylor’s family and legal team wanted harsher charges. Activists are calling for real justice to be served. An attorney that represents Taylor’s family, Ben Crump, hoped to at least have the officer charged with manslaughter in the second degree. Breonna Taylor deserves better than this. Activists, friends, and family demand justice. Many people have taken to social media to tell America, “We need to do better.”

Political Posturing as Officers Shot in Breonna Taylor Protests

Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here As was expected when Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced that the police officers involved in the Breonna Taylor killing would not be charged with second-degree manslaughter, riots ensued. The mob violence that local authorities knew would be coming erupted in the form of at least two (and possibly three) shootings of police officers, rioting, and destruction. Less expected was the twist of presenting the grand jury decision as a matter of party affiliation rather than American justice. Presidential contender Joe Biden, in a prepared statement, said: “I know people are frustrated and they have a right to peacefully protest, but violence is never acceptable … And we can express pain, grief, anger, and disappointment at the way things are, but remain focused on rebuilding trust in our communities and delivering change that can be.” Officers shot, officers struck in the head with baseball bats, wanton destruction, and it appears Mr. Biden sees this as little more than “frustration.” The former VP and others failed to point out what a resolution might be; instead, the situation began to be framed as a party issue. Alicia Garza, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter, suggested that AG Cameron had delivered a Bull Connor speech, referencing the 60s-era anti-Civil Rights politician from Birmingham, Alabama. She said to MSNBC’s Joy Reid, “I think what I saw this morning was a Bull Connor speech in 2020 … unfortunately, it was being given by a black prosecutor.” Ignoring the fact that Theophilus Eugene “Bull” Connor was a Democrat, Reid asked viewers to disregard Cameron’s skin color and look to his party affiliation for the reason behind the verdict. She advised: “I think you have to always look at party. Party is the religion now in America — especially for Republicans. Don’t look at the fact that this guy is black. That does not mean anything … He is a Republican through and through. He spoke at the RNC. He told you who he was. Believe him.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) also chimed in with her thoughts, tweeting, “Breonna Taylor should be alive today. She should be living and laughing and loving. Instead, her family is left continuing the search for justice. Today’s charging decision holds no one accountable for her death.” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) followed a similar theme: “This is wrong. Breonna Taylor’s life mattered. She deserves justice. Her family deserves justice. Unjust laws produce unjust outcomes. This must end. The Senate must pass the Justice in Policing Act.” Schumer’s echoing of the rioter’s words again frame this as a Republican versus Democrat issue. Protests continue to rage across the country from the west coast to the east, some violent, some not. And while many may be angry at the decision not to prosecute the officers for Breonna Taylor’s death, the framing of this as a political issue is likely to do more harm than good. If politicians think the practices and codes of conduct permitted for police officers are wrong, then they are in a position to change the laws. Many of those decrying the current regulations have been in office for decades and have failed to make the changes they now say are urgent. If the system is flawed, then the gatekeepers of the system should be accepting responsibility. Making political hay out of a tragic death is neither courageous nor helpful. ~ Read more from Mark Angelides. Get Your Top Election Coverage Right Here on Liberty Nation [embedded content]

Do not let Democrats get away with the narrative that these riots are not their fault

President Trump is going to be blamed, just as he’s blamed for pretty much anything bad by Democrats and mainstream media. That’s a common theme that has been pervasive throughout the last four years, and in the vast majority of cases this theme is false. It’s not that the White House does everything perfectly, but they generally do what’s best for America. Democrats, on the other hand, do not, and mainstream media is complicit in promoting the propaganda that they’re innocent while Republicans are the ultimate form of evil in America. The sad and avoidable death of Breonna Taylor at the hands of law enforcement should be a catalyst for police reforms, especially as they pertain to no-knock warrants. There is conflicting information about whether they had a no-knock warrant, but it’s clear that they knocked and identified themselves before forcing their way into the house. As I noted yesterday, either execute the no-knock warrant or knock and wait. The fact that they did what appears to be a combination of the two likely contributed to Taylor’s demise, but that’s a discussion for another time. What can be considered unambiguous is that Democratic policies and their feckless leadership in cities like Louisville, Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Austin directly contribute to the rampant lawlessness. There’s a very clear reason why these cities seem to be most vulnerable to domestic terrorism. All of them have Democratic “leadership” at the city level and usually at the state level as well. That should tell us something, but Democrats try to rebuke the insinuations while mainstream media ignores the correlation. It’s 2020, so such things can be expected. That doesn’t mean we have to accept it and it should definitely mean we need to fight back. In the latest episode of NOQ Report, I talked about the dangers that Democrats pose to these cities and why we need to make sure voters are aware of these Democratic failures before the election. They are trying to spin this to be President Trump’s fault. After all, it’s happening under his watch. But despite claims by some conservatives that the President needs to supersede Democratic leaders in these cities and states, we need to be careful. If federal primacy engages in questions of law and order when Democratic mayors and governors denounce it, we could find we’re wishing for something that is turned against us in the future. Imagine a hypothetical Democratic president who decides to use federal law enforcement on issues that should also be localized. We will not have a strong argument against it if some conservatives persist in calling for action by the President. Federalism works for many reasons. One of those reasons pertains to law enforcement jurisdictions. It’s incumbent on law enforcement, city, and state leaders to request assistance from Washington DC. We should oppose the federal government taking too proactive of a role in local law enforcement issues, including riots. We would oppose a national mandate on gun control, for example, and right-leaning cities and states should be able to choose whether or not to enforce such a mandate. But if a Democratic president decides to send in federal law enforcement to enforce it, we must be able to say with consistency that such things are wrong. To be consistent, the federal government must allow local, city, and state law enforcement to do their jobs without interference until they explicitly request assistance. The real takeaway here pertains to the election narrative. It’s imperative that we educate and inform those within our circles about the truth of these riots. They are happening in Democrat-run cities because Democrats embrace the spirit of lawlessness. This new variation of their party has allowed identity politics to suppress any sense of law and order they may have had. It’s easy for Republicans to say that Democrats have always been this way, but that’s simply not true. Democrats haven’t always allowed their cities to be overrun by riots. They’re just wont to do it today because the alternative—embracing law and order—puts them at odds with their base as well as with the big-money donors like George Soros who helped them get elected. There is absolutely no reason why the people couldn’t make the connection between Democratic leadership and the domestic terrorism spreading across this country. Still, many don’t see it.

Breonna Taylor riots were anticipated. Why were cities, states, and DC not prepared?

The shooting of two police officers in Louisville yesterday highlighted a night of violence that spread through many Democrat-led cities across the nation. Riots were rampant in Louisville, Austin, Portland, Seattle, and the other usual suspects following an announcement of “light” charges against one of the officers who shot and killed Breonna Taylor. According to The Blaze, a suspect is in custody: The interim chief of the Louisville Metro Police Department said that a suspect was in custody after the shooting of two officers during the violent protests over the death of Breonna Taylor. Interim Police Chief Robert Schroeder said in a short media briefing on Wednesday evening that the two officers were in stable condition, and that one was undergoing surgery. Schroeder said that police were responding at about 8:30 p.m. to a call of shots being fired at the corner of First and Broadway streets when more shots rang out and two police were struck. Those police were taken to University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Many took to social media with concerns about why the riots were allowed to get so out of hand. Law enforcement at every level has known there would be protests and likely riots for over two days when Louisville announced they would be releasing the results of the grand jury investigation of the officers involved in the shooting. As our EIC noted yesterday, the riots were definitely going to happen and had very little to do with Breonna Taylor herself. There were attacks on law enforcement reported in multiple cities, including Seattle and Portland. According to Tayler Hansen and Andy Ngo: Police Officers are now getting hit with Molotov Cocktails pic.twitter.com/wNfNf4X1UE — Tayler Hansen (@TaylerUSA) September 24, 2020 Seattle: Antifa rioters beat a cop on the head who is knocked to the ground. #SeattleRiots #antifa #BLM https://t.co/OVyqe4LsRf — Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) September 24, 2020 But the violence was not just isolated to attacks on law enforcement.

The Breonna Taylor Indictment Has Arrived: Will Louisville Burn?

Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here A Kentucky grand jury indicted former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment on Wednesday, September 23. The charges were for Hankison’s shots fired during the search warrant raid on Breonna Taylor’s apartment, but not for killing Taylor. Instead, Mr. Hankison was indicted for the gunshots he recklessly fired into neighboring apartments. Two other officers involved in the March 13 incident, Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, were not charged. Say Her Name Taylor family attorney Benjamin Crump was quick to tweet, “Jefferson County Grand Jury indicts former ofc. Brett Hankison with 3 counts of Wanton Endangerment in 1st Degree for bullets that went into other apartments but NOTHING for the murder of Breonna Taylor. This is outrageous and offensive!” Crump is so upset because the Grand Jury’s decision means that the shot that killed Ms. Taylor was legally fired. Kentucky’s Attorney General announced the grand jury’s decision. Daniel Cameron, a Republican and black man, acted as a special prosecutor in the case and revealed some key facts surrounding the raid and Taylor’s death. She was killed by a shot fired by Detective Myles Cosgrove. Cosgrove’s shot was legal because he was returning fire from Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker. In short, Ms. Taylor was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and so her death – while tragic – was not the result of a crime committed by Cosgrove. Cosgrove’s and Mattingly’s shots were legally justified. Not No Knock Police did knock and announce themselves before breaking down Taylor’s door. That was a point of contention about the raid, and something focused on by Crump and his comrades. Attorney General Cameron announced his team found independent corroboration from a civilian witness that the police knocked and announced their presence. This point is vital because it informs whether Ms. Taylor and Mr. Walker thought police or others were invading the apartment. Cameron said his team conducted the review “from scratch,” pieced together from ballistics, interviews, and 911 calls. He used his connections with the FBI to have their lab examine the ballistics data available. It was the FBI, not state labs, that identified Cosgrove as the killer. Hankinson fired blindly into several apartments and recklessly endangered Taylor’s neighbors. A wanton endangerment charge is a class D felony and carries a penalty of one to five years in prison. Ben Crump’s reaction is a bellwether for unrest and tumult. In anticipation of Cameron’s announcement, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer invoked a 72-hour curfew, effective Wednesday night, from 9 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. ~ Read more from Scott D. Cosenza.

Breonna Taylor riots will have little to do with Breonna Taylor

In saner days, reactions to a so-called “light” indictment of former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison would likely have included protests (actual peaceful protest), editorials, vigils, and calls by politicians for action. 2020 has not been made up of sane days since February at the latest, so we can expect the news about Breonna Taylor’s alleged killer’s charges to bring rioting, demands to defund police, severe racial tension, and calls by politicians for extreme measures. That’s what 2020 has devolved into. But lost in the narrative about no-knock warrants and a citizen’s right to defend themselves will be the real reason for all the chaos that is about to ensue. Breonna Taylor’s death was tragic and likely avoidable, but she isn’t the real reason for the riots. She’s just another excuse to riot presented by Neo-Marxist agitators who have been actively trying to burn down cities across America for months. These agitators don’t care about Breonna Taylor or no-knock warrants. They don’t even really care about police brutality or systemic racism despite pretending to be fighting both. Their only interest is using this tragedy to spark hatred, anarchy, and the long-awaited revolution they’ve been trying to initiate for years. This is the tag from the U-Haul in Louisville where BLM/Antifa are offloading their riot gear. Looks like 788A13, not sure which state. ⁦@DonaldJTrumpJr⁩ ⁦@ElijahSchaffer⁩ ⁦@stillgray⁩ ⁦@MrAndyNgo⁩ ⁦@TaylerUSA⁩ ⁦@johncardillo⁩ ⁦⁦@FBI⁩ pic.twitter.com/oumTBgQxM6 — Eric Matheny? (@EricMMatheny) September 23, 2020 Black Lives Matter will be at the forefront and Antifa will grab some headlines, but the people representing them on the streets are just pawns. Even most of the agitators are pawns to a higher and much more nefarious force. The agitators may know more about the plan than the useful idiots who will be the tip of the rioting spear, but only negligibly. They believe they are starting a revolution to bring about anarcho-communism and to take down hegemonic authority in all its forms. They are being misled. The revolution they’re really starting on the orders of their puppetmasters is one designed to destroy America, all of it, and all of their agitators’ goals will be tossed to the wayside if they’re successful. Again, they’re just pawns. To the Neo-Marxist puppetmasters, Breonna Taylor is George Floyd. She’s Jacob Blake. She’s every person of color whose death has sparked wanton destruction and inner-city chaos in Democratic-controlled areas across the nation. She’s someone who can be used to fan the flames of their growing insurrection. The circumstances of both her life and death are irrelevant to the evil people at the top of the revolutionary food chain. She, too, is just a pawn to them, even in death. Especially in death. This is a moment when Americans, our representatives in government, and the leaders within the criminal justice system should be talking about the efficacy of no-knock warrants for drug-related crimes. The story being told about the circumstances the night Breonna Taylor was killed tells us two things. First, no-knock warrants are dangerous when done as a half-measure. Reports indicate they did, indeed, knock and attempt to identify themselves rather than simply busting down the door first. If they had initiated the no-knock warrant as it’s supposed to be initiated, it’s unlikely Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, would have been able to retrieve his legal firearm to fire at the police officers. If they had knocked and waited to issue the warrant without going in, they likely also would have avoided confrontation. But by knocking, waiting, and then coming in, they created a circumstance that led to tragedy. The second thing to understand is that no-knock warrants are dangerous, even when initiated properly, and therefore should not be used for crimes short of kidnapping or threats of violence. It’s understandable to use a no-knock warrant if lives may be in danger, but drug-related no-knock warrants are designed to help law enforcement collect evidence before it’s discarded or destroyed. That’s simply not worth the risk. A standard warrant should be enough to make the majority of proper drug busts and for those who are able to discard their drugs before law enforcement can enter, it’s incumbent on law enforcement to work harder to collect evidence otherwise. Risking the lives of those in their home, whether they’re drug dealers or not, is inappropriate. In fact, it can be deadly. But none of that matters today, at least not as far as the Black Lives Matter and Antifa “activists” are concerned. They aren’t interested in reforms. They want police to be eliminated by budget cuts, violence, intimidation, or a combination of the three. We should be making things better for this nation by learning from how poorly the situation was handled, a situation that led to an unnecessary death. Instead, the “activists” who will be destroying lives and property tonight and in the future only want us to learn one thing: Fear. Justice has NOT been served. Rise UP. All across this country. Everywhere. Rise up for #BreonnaTaylor — Linda Sarsour (@lsarsour) September 23, 2020 The anarchy that will rise surrounding Breonna Taylor’s killing will not make law enforcement better. It will not make anyone safer. It will not bring about positive change. Breonna Taylor’s death will be used to spark the revolution Neo-Marxists have planned for a long time.

‘Burn Louisville’ trends on Twitter. Joe Pags calls out their utter hypocrisy.

There has been a common theme on Twitter since the 2016 election season. If a conservative calls for violence, they will almost certainly be suspended or banned altogether. If a progressive calls for violence, they may get a warning but will probably get kudos and even retweets from Twitter staff. That’s what we’ve learned to expect from an organization that is staffed heavily by left-leaning employees. Many are full blown radical progressives using their jobs to participate in social justice activism. All the while, Twitter’s top brass will tell anyone publicly, including Washington DC, that they have no bias. But that narrative is demonstrably false as we can see by today’s big trending topic, “Burn Louisville.” Following news that Breonna Taylor’s alleged killer, former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison, will not be charged with murder, calls for massive riots and wanton destruction in the city and around the country flooded social media. These riots will have very little to do with Taylor’s death as I noted earlier, but that’s not important to Twitter. All that’s important to Twitter employees is that cities burn and their revolution continues to get legs. Here are some direct calls for violence. There have likely been tens of thousands of these, perhaps more. Twitter has not placed warnings on these calls for people to riot. They are letting it ride. But as radio host Joe Pagliarulo pointed at, Twitter was quick to slap a warning on a Tweet by President Trump that they believed called for violence. It did not, but by Twitter’s skewed understanding, they thought it did. Twitter blocked @realDonaldTrump's tweet that violence will be met with force alleging it promoted violence.. but Burn Louisville can trend with no recourse? At least give the appearance of being even-handed, @Jack. — Joe Pags Pagliarulo (@JoeTalkShow) September 23, 2020 “Joe Pags,” as he’s called on his radio show, we referring to a Tweet by the President in June warning Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters in Washington DC not to try to create what was built in Seattle that month. The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), which was later renamed the Capital Hill Organized Protest (CHOP), in Seattle was a six-block area near the East Precinct where multiple shootings and rampant crime took place when anarcho-communists took over. When reports came in that such an autonomous zone was being planned for the nation’s capital, the President issued a warning. Twitter labeled it as “abusive behavior.” There will never be an “Autonomous Zone” in Washington, D.C., as long as I’m your President. If they try they will be met with serious force! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 23, 2020 According to Twitter, a conservative presidential warning against violence is considered to be… violence. But leftists calling for actual violence are acceptable and even encouraged on Twitter. Got it. COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet Nobody said running a media site would be easy.
