No, they didn't charge him. At least two people on the grand jury are now saying the public is being mislead. They were never even given the option of murder charges.

I believe them. Our system is a mess. I remember not even finding out about a detail --a lie-- which determined the sentencing in a case of mine until after sentencing! :lol: The guy brought it up, as a question, an "oh, did I do that" in mediation. I was floored. He knew he was lying, and the police never even bothered to investigate it.

In this case the police lied to the judge to get the warrant in the first place. But the judge knows that, this is routine. What's not routine is having everything go wrong so that these --little lies-- suddenly matter. Now you've got a mountain of lies and the system is being used to protect the liars, and the innocent think they're going crazy.

The latest one in Philadelphia is a little different, the guy had a knife, and refused to stop. But he had well-known mental issues, the family called for an ambulance, not police, and in any case, what are tasers for if not for situations like this?

Definitely another complete stuff-up, but a lesser level of culpability for the police involved, I would think... Still going to provoke riots, that's for sure...

Individual cases are difficult to judge. We can say that the healthcare system is broken, and that we hope that a better system would lead to fewer people with mental health issues being treated by the criminal justice system.

LA's rioting and looting because their baseball team won the Series.

Louisville police officer sues Kenneth Walker, boyfriend of Breonna Taylor, for emotional distress, assault and battery

An officer involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor has filed a civil suit against the 26-year-old's boyfriend for emotional distress, assault and battery on the night she was killed. The lawsuit claims Louisville Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly experienced "severe trauma, mental anguish, and emotional distress" because of Kenneth Walker's actions on March 13.

Mattingly and two other officers entered Taylor's apartment early in the morning that day with a warrant in an attempt to carry out a drug investigation. Walker, a licensed gun owner who said he thought the officers were intruders, allegedly fired a shot that hit Mattingly in the leg. Police opened fire, killing Taylor. Taylor had no criminal record and no drugs were found.

"Walker's conduct in shooting Mattingly is outrageous, intolerable, and offends all accepted standards of decency and morality," the lawsuit said, citing one of the legal standards for intentional emotional distress.

Walker was initially arrested and charged with attempted murder over the shooting, but those charges were later dropped. Walker subsequently sued the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department and also sought immunity based on the state's "Stand Your Ground" law.

Walker's attorney called Mattingly's lawsuit a "baseless attempt to further victimize and harass Kenny."

"Kenny Walker is protected by law under KRS 503.085 and is immune from both criminal prosecution and civil liability as he was acting in self defense in his own home," attorney Steve Romines said in a statement obtained by CBS News.

"Even the most basic understanding of Kentucky's 'Stand Your Ground' law and the 'Castle Doctrine' evidences this fact. One would think that breaking into the apartment, executing his girlfriend and framing him for a crime in an effort to cover up her murder would be enough for them," he added. "Yet this baseless attempt to further victimize and harass Kenny indicates otherwise."

FFS. Just goes to show that you need to kill the intruders so they can't sue you.

So sad and maddening.

It reminds me of my suspicion about all the accidental shootings that probably weren't. ...something like a murder reflex in some
