Federal Buildings Boarded-Up Ahead of Possible Louisville Decision on Whether to Charge Officers in Breonna Taylor Death

Federal buildings in Louisville, Kentucky have been boarded up ahead of a possible decision from the city on whether to charge the officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor, 26, who died during a no-knock search warrant in March, Fox News reported.

The windows of one of the city’s courthouses and attached offices were reportedly reinforced with on Sunday, according to Fox News. The Gene Snyder United States Courthouse will be closed to the public from Sept. 21 to 25 and court appearances will be conducted through video conferences, an order from Kentucky’s Western District Court read.

An unidentified courthouse official said the legal building has shut its doors in preparation of an announcement, according to the Courier-Journal. Authorities are expected to announce a decision on charges regarding the three officers involved in Taylor’s death, the local outlet reported.

Officers allegedly shot and killed the 26-year-old during a narcotics search warrant after Taylor’s boyfriend opened fire on them, later saying he didn’t know they were law enforcement, according to the Courier-Journal.

U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman has reportedly requested Homeland Security agents to protect the federal buildings, according to the local outlet.

The Kentucky Court of Justice did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

  1. All Law Enforcement Officers involved in the Justified firing of weapons resulting in the death of Bronna Taylor should be exonerated. They returned fire after being fired upon.

  2. The police tactical units operate in gray areas. In those units some individuals almost feel divine and do things that are completely illegal. If some tactical unit comes to my door and shouts out “Police, open up” I am likely to question what is going on, especially when I am not guilty of anything. If they commence to break in the door and I have a gun handy I am more than likely to try and defend myself. The question I had in my mind over this case is, if the Boy friend with Breanna had fired a gun why did they shoot Breanna so many time and kill her on the spot? To me that is careless and reckless operations of police activity and a complete violation of the illegal search. The police started out with bad information, went to the wrong apartment without due vigilance, proceeded with entry illegally, and killed a person who was not guilty of anything. Unless that department terminates these officers for their conduct there will be a lot more damage that occurs. SOME police have huge egos and feel they are above the law.
