Kentucky AG Defends Decision in Breonna Taylor Case, Says Officers ‘Justified' in Use of Force

28 days ago   |   By Mediaite

On Wednesday, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron defended the decision not to directly charge former police officer Brett Hankison in connection with the shooting of Breonna Taylor -
