Charlie Kirk – the host of “The Charlie Kirk Show” and the founder and president of Turning Point USA – the largest and fastest-growing conservative youth activist organization in America, spoke up about the truth behind the death of Breonna Taylor.
In Kirk's video, he decried the “anarchists, BLM-incorporated democrats” marching in the streets and trying to advocate for justice for Breonna Taylor without reading up on the facts.
Even Senator Harris, who Kirk claims “will never be Vice President of the United States,” says Taylor's family deserves justice.
Here are the facts of the case.
When Louisville police officers went to Taylor’s residence, they knocked even though it was supposed to be a no-knock raid. The officers then entered her home because there was no answer after they made their presence known.
Taylor’s new boyfriend then started shooting at the police officers, proving that Kenneth Walker is a criminal and a thug. (Related: One officer in Breonna Taylor case charged with wanton endangerment, Kentucky AG finds police use of force was JUSTIFIED.)
Walker fired a 9mm pistol at the officers who were simply doing their jobs and executing a search warrant. Walker shot Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly in the leg. Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove then returned fire.
The police and Walker then continued to shoot at each other. Sometime during the shootout, Taylor passed away after being hit six times by police bullets.
A Jefferson County grand jury charged Brett Hankinson, now a former Louisville Metro Police Department detective, with three counts of “wanton endangerment.” Hankinson fired a total of 10 rounds, with some entering an adjacent apartment housing a male, a pregnant female and a child.
Hankinson has already been fired from the force, and he is currently facing five years on each of the three charged counts. It was also determined that the other two officers were justified in firing their weapons.
While Taylor's death isn’t an outcome anyone would defend, it’s worth noting that the police didn’t walk into a random apartment. The police also didn’t stroll up to a random person on the street execution-style and decided to kill this individual.
Taylor was standing in the hallway, next to Walker, who was in a shooting stance and was unharmed during the shootout. She was also dating Walker, a criminal, who decided to shoot at the police.
And so the grand jury in Jefferson County, Kentucky, poured over this information. This outraged people and some say it’s unfair that the police are only tried for reckless endangerment, which is probably a correct indictment for one of the officers for endangering some of the other residents in the adjacent apartments.
But if there was evidence for the grand jury to proceed with a murder indictment, wouldn’t they have done that? Unfortunately, this grand jury was under such public pressure to go and proceed with that kind of indictment for murder.
Yet they didn’t push through because the facts didn’t warrant it.
Think again before you write Breonna Taylor’s name on your helmet or you have a shirt that says “Breonna Taylor.” Know the facts of the case: That she was involved in a drug-trafficking criminal scheme, that she was dating Walker, a thug who tried to kill a police officer and her ex-boyfriend Glover, wasn’t exactly an upstanding member of society.
Despite these facts, there are those who insist that Taylor must be remembered like Jacob Blake, who was accused of being a rapist. Before you start to create these “nationwide emotives and quasi-pathological campaigns” about “unjust police killings,” remember that Taylor would still be alive if her boyfriend Walker didn’t try to kill a police officer.
Kirk clarified that he wasn’t defending the fact that Taylor passed away in the crossfire. Rather, he called out the idea that police officers went out of their way to murder a defenseless Taylor in her bed when she was actually standing in the hallway.
The officers also knocked courteously even though they had a no-knock warrant. Know the facts, don’t get angry because mainstream media tells you, and stand with police officers who acted correctly during the incident, advised Kirk.
If people are going to burn down another city because of Taylor’s death, Kirk warned that he and others like him, who respect the police, will not tolerate it.
Hold the line with truth because rioters want to burn down America at all costs, concluded Kirk.
