—Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is the right leader in the right place at the right time. He stepped up and spoke before the people of Kentucky and the world after the grand jury returned its findings in the shooting death of Breanna Taylor, a black woman working as an EMT, in her apartment during execution of a search warrant. There had been some actually protest and much rioting on the pretext of her death. I searched out AG Cameron’s full statement and a copy of the press conference video, original posted on Facebook. The original text is posted here in PDF form. Consider his words, consider the response of national media and politicians, then consider that two local police officers have already been shot in the context of “protests” that turned violent, as usual this year.
