And more reports come forth detailing the killing of Breonna Taylor, who was killed by out of uniform police, who broke into her home unannounced while she was sleeping, shooting her repeatedly, mistakenly as the police had the wrong address and in fact the suspect they were after had already been apprehended. Apparently she was able to get out of bed and collapsed in a hallway, where she lay dying, gasping for breath, for 20 minutes, with no police aid or assistance. 20 minutes she was left to die, alone with no comfort at all. Did I mention Breonna - who had a sterling record and was an Emergency Medical Technician - was also Black?

Gee, you seem to have left out the undisputed fact that in the course of the police executing a lawful warrant signed by a Judge (you know, like a FISA warrant), Miss Taylor's boyfriend first shot and grievously wounded one of the police officers, causing them to return fire inadvertently striking and killing Miss Taylor,

Did you not know that or as in all Leftist reporting these days, did it not fit the narrative you desired to create?

Only you, and those like you, would attempt to spin a statement of facts as "not fitting the narrative you desire to create". I note you didn't actually refute a single statement in my comment. Meanwhile, of course I know the police really made a big boo-boo when barging into the wrong apartment and killing the wrong person. Of course the boyfriend, who was a fully and lawfully licensed and registered gun owner, would shoot when a group of men pushed down the door of the apartment, out of uniform and not announcing who they were, and rushing into the bedroom early in the morning, fully armed with assault weapons pointed at you! I thought personal protection was a major argument in support of a no-restriction interpretation of the 2nd! None of this changes anything in my comment - once they shot the (totally wrong) Black woman, they left her to bleed out on the hallway floor without attempting to give aid or comfort.

That's how Leftists and their media create a narrative - by including only selective facts. I note you didn't "refute a single statement in my comment" - simply added your own opinions.

But, in Lannyworld now it is appropriate for anyone visiting a home to shoot at police who are operating under a valid warrant and announced who they were, and then blame the police for the carnage that results. Let's keep that in mind the next time a home invader of color is shot breaking into the home of a White person.

All Lives Matter including those we usually refer to as “white”, those we usually refer to as "black", and those we usually refer to as "police" who come in all colors.

Two more garbage opinion letters.

Not so glowing in your assessment today, eh Rottweiler? Remember to follow the rules - Be proactive.

Just waiting for your same old tirade....fire when ready you have nothing else to do.

Lanivan

It will be so nice when you actually have something proactive, news worthy, carefully researched, and well reasoned to add to the forum!

Lanivan have you noticed that the rest of us comment on the opinion writer and you just spend your time attacking us. You are an internet bully. So sad, get a life.
