How the Police Killed Breonna Taylor | Visual Investigations

None of the police officers who raided Breonna Taylor’s home wore body cameras, impeding the public from a full understanding of what happened. The Times’s visual investigation team built a 3-D model of the scene and pieced together critical sequences of events to show how poor planning and shoddy police work led to a fatal outcome.
Whether it's reporting on conflicts abroad and political divisions at home, or covering the latest style trends and scientific developments, New York Times video journalists provide a revealing and unforgettable view of the world. It's all the news that's fit to watch.

Shoutout to the single officer who testified it as an "egregious act" and criticized the officers.

Sad part is, only ONE officer thought they were in the wrong.
(Crying) “my girlfriend is dead”.

This looks like a group of idiots who watched one too many action movie's trying to live that fantasy.
The education level of some cops in the US is so low.

Honestly watching this and understanding the context of everything, this just puts America to shame.

It was sheer luck that nobody in the other apartments was killed. Could you imagine there you are watching TV or doing whatever and bullets just start flying through the room?

“My girlfriend is dead.” “ I don’t give a -.” That tells you all need to know about police brutality and cruelty, besides the killing of innocent people..

After the Breonna's Boyfriend said that he wasn't hit with a bullet, another officer said "That's Unfortunate". I am disappointed, disgusted, and honestly I hope that officer pays the price.

This is just a whole mess they should all be fired for their poor assessment of the situation and how they handled it.

Ethan Sickler:
What I find interesting is there’s not a single person that looks at this and says “yep, those guys were doing the right thing”. Not a SINGLE PERSON, yet people are still so divided over this specific incident. Strange times.

ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE FOR HAVING THEIR CAMERAS OFF! Sadly there is no cure for Ignorance, all 6 of them should be terminated and stripped of any benefits for that alone.

Every witness says they didn’t hear the police announce themselves. One person said he doesn’t remember clearly. They use that person’s testimony as proof?
Brother Kellerman
Brother Kellerman:
Amazing that he’s immediately considered a criminal after police fired almost two dozen shots in the house, while Kenneth didn’t fire anywhere near that

"Have you been hit by a bullet?"
"That's unfortunate."
So many aspects of this are shocking, not least the stuff they came out with while arresting her boyfriend after they killed her. These clowns weren't fit to run a bath, they need to be in jail for this crime.

What’s sad is that SWAT officer is probably being treated like a snitch. Cops need better training
these visual investigations have always been AMAZINGLY in depth, another good video by this source
“Have you been hit by a bullet?”
“That’s unfortunate.”
Did I hear that right?

The more information that comes out, the more appalled (and dare I say enraged), I become.
top things to not do:
1) step into fatal funnel
2) blindly fire at unknown targets
3) fire haphazardly into anywhere with civilians
4) search a dark apartment without flashlights
5) not announce yourself

everyone that fired a shot should be charged with several counts of endangerment

"Hey, cameras off there"

This is beyond cruel. Wether criminal not not no one deserves to be treated without any humanity.
This whole thing is absolutely gruesome, but the part which really got to me is how they treated her boyfriend. I’m honestly baffled that any policeperson would find this ok

This is what happens when untrained narcissistic cops raid a house they know nothing about.
When the boyfriend was crying trying to tell them that his girlfriend had been shot while he was being poorly taken care of and shoved against a car, I burst into tears right then and there. You can’t tell me this isn’t cruel.
This is so upsetting to watch.
At the very least, like bare minimum, the officers should be fired (blacklisted even!). Incredible how ‘mistakes’ like this can even happen..

Announcing yourself is something that shouldn’t even be taught That’s common sense
Hunter safety course teaches you about what’s beyond your target
Yet this cop shot blindly into 2 windows
How they get these jobs I’ll never understand

Keep resting with the angels Breonna. Justice may be delayed but will not be denied.
J T:
The thing that gets me most about this incident is that if this case didn't get the media attention it did, then Kenneth Walker would likely have been put away a long time without any serious questions being asked. It would have just been another case of an attempted murder on a cop and everybody would have just accepted that version of events. It wasn't until the story came to light and after alot of scrutinization that they dropped the charges (of which they can re-file in the future if they feel that they have a case).

Rule for warrant is to get intel within 24 hrs before you hit that location. This was trash investigation from all officers involved RIP Breonna 😥
Kenneth is crying. "My girlfriend is dead!"
The officers threaten with a dog and state they "do not give a [censored].
Cameras off we need to get our stories straight because of how bad we're fked. they need to be fined for turning it off at all on duty 20k from pension should discourage that.

Those SWAT guys walked in and the evidence was on the wall literally. They were looking around like W.T.H. The look at his face when he sees the EMS jacket and shakes his head, his expression says it all, "This is completely f**ked up".

These analyses are extraordinarily well put together. Keep at it. People need to hear the truth.
Evidence anyone heard police announced is "sworn police officers said so"
Other than that no one heard it.
Zoe Delrio
Zoe Delrio:
The way they treated him when arresting him is so unsettling; mocking him for being scared, for his girlfriend's death... the utmost loss of humanity.
Upward Gaming

Not having the body camera turned on in a situation like this should be a dismissible offence if not an arrest, there is no excuse for them to not have their cameras when they are the ones that instigate the incident

When citizens “mess up” (don’t move every muscle in their body exactly as instructed) in a police encounter, citizens die. When police mess up in a citizen encounter, citizens die. This tells me we need to set the bar MUCH higher for who we give a badge and a gun to.

It gets even worse when you learn the no-knock warrant that they got was based on the mailman saying she gets packages that she shouldn't. When the mailman heard this he confirmed that he never stated or said that......

The fact the one officer thought it was a good idea to shoot through the closed window with curtain and blinds drawn, he literally shot without looking at all and he wasn't in the line of fire. Such gross incompetence.
