This was just one of the many police stories this past spring and summer that were used as pretexts for riots, I mean, mostly peaceful protests. The Lyin' Press has taken each of these and run with them for weeks or months, sequenced into the Infotainment during short breaks in the Kung Flu Panicfest.
I imagine even if you live in Louisville, Kentucky, unless you live in the neighborhood in question [We cannot recommend this - PS Legal Dept.], you may have heard nothing more than the Lyin' Press narrative.
Peak Stupidity appreciates our favorite literary pundit, and lawyer, don't forget, who has just written a column explaining what happened during the fatal shooting of this Breonna Taylor, woman of color (which is the most important thing):
Hey, guys, I found out the true facts in the Breonna Taylor case!That's bad ... but go on, Miss Coulter:
Remember the “botched raid” (New York Times) on Breonna’s apartment in Louisville, Kentucky, last March, when police officers killed this innocent black woman as she slept peacefully in her bed?
Yes, apparently, without announcing themselves, the police smashed in the front door of the WRONG APARTMENT. Their warrant was for a man Breonna had dated eons ago and barely knew anymore, and whom they already had in custody! Assuming the police were home invaders, Breonna’s boyfriend pulled out a gun—again, police were at the WRONG APARTMENT—whereupon the officers opened fire, killing Breonna and wounding one of their own in friendly fire.
You probably won’t believe this, but it turns out, none of that is true.In lawyer mode, Ann Coulter explains herself with many details of this shooting. Most of them contradict the Lyin' Press narrative that was used to incite riots.
Contrary to the repeated claim that the police “had the wrong address and the wrong person and the person was in custody”—as the Rev. Al Sharpton put it—the police were not at the wrong house at all.
It seems that Breonna Taylor was knee-deep in the criminal enterprise of her sometime-boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover, who was running a massive drug operation, selling crack cocaine and fentanyl to the citizens of Louisville.
The gist of the ending of that police raid on an apartment housing the drug dealers was that Breonna's squeeze Jamarcus shot at the cops after they entered the apartment after knocking (admitted by Jamarcus). OK, there are plenty of times that one feels the cops fully deserve to get shot as they act like Police State minions. We've all seen videos of a few of these. Peak Stupidity does not have any love for Police State, USA and the drug war. This was not one of those times, though.
One would think that the Lyin' Press would have gotten ahold of at least one or two egregious, riot-worthy* cases of relatively (at least) innocent black people coming out on the bad ends of police encounters. I'm guessing that the general impulsiveness of these black guys doesn't let them get as far as some cool-headed white guys who peacefully push their rights in the face of the cops, some of who murder them anyway. At that point, for the white guys, the Lyin' Press doesn't care. They don't care about the white man's problems, and plus, there wouldn't be riots anyway, so what's the point?
It's great to have Ann Coulter to set the record straight. Too bad about the nice business you built up over 25 years in Louisville that got smashed up by rioters. You won't be reimbursed by the inciters in the Lyin' Press.
* Of course, that doesn't mean I'm against Americans shooting dead rioters that invade their property either.
