Breonna Taylor's Black Neighbor Speaks Out


Published Yesterday

People demanding justice for Breonna Taylor are eagerly awaiting for the grand jury records to be released, which Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron has delayed. Now, Taylor’s neighbor, who happens to Black, is speaking out and wants to know why the cops weren’t charged for shooting into his apartment.

According to USA Today, Stanley David bullets were fired into his apartment with himself, his 7-year-old daughter and his  75-year-old mother all inside. David’s apartment was above  Taylor’s. 

David,  who is originally from  Liberia, said, “My apartment was hit too.  The bullet that came through my floor right in front of my bedroom door, if that bullet went through my bed, maybe I would have been dead too. I’m a human being too.”

He also said about the unsubstantiated  rumors that the 26-year-old EMT worker was involved in drug dealing, “Breonna was nobody like they claim. For as long as I knew her, I didn’t see anybody coming there with anything like that. There weren’t people coming in and out. It was only she and her boyfriend.”

As for the officers not being charged with her death, he said, “I don’t think that’s right. Breonna was not doing drugs, and she got killed for nothing. She never had a gun. She did not shoot any shots.”

For months, his family was questioned by authorities and they eventually moved out of the apartment. 

A grand jury returned three counts of “wanton endangerment” in the first degree against former officer Brett Hankinson for firing into another apartment, which happened to be Taylor’s white neighbor. A $15,000 cash bond was also attached to the charges.
