The Killing of Breonna Taylor, Part 2

Update: 2020-09-1022


This episode contains strong language. 

“So there’s just shooting, like we’re both on the ground,” Kenneth Walker, Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, said of the raid on her home. “I don’t know where these shots are coming from, and I’m scared.”

Much of what happened on the night the police killed Ms. Taylor is unclear.

As part of an investigation for The New York Times, our correspondent Rukmini Callimachi and the filmmaker Yoruba Richen spoke to neighbors and trawled through legal documents, police records and call logs to understand what happened that night and why.

In the second and final part of the series, Rukmini talks about her findings. 

Guest: Rukmini Callimachi, a correspondent for The New York Times.

So glad I heard this ... unfortunately Breonna made bad choices knowingly bedding with dirtbags bringing Damascus around her sister and children. Going to the trap house, financing the vehicles used in the Drug syndicate implicated in a murder. To top it all off her other boyfriend shoots police first. Supposedly didn't open the door when police knocked because she was in deep with killers. This guy Kenny got caught up with the wrong girl.
