Cops Lie – Judge concerned
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Louisville judge who signed a search warrant for Breonna Taylor’s home that ultimately led to her death said Thursday she is concerned that the detective may have lied to obtain the warrant.
But Jefferson Circuit Judge Mary Shaw told The Courier Journal that she will defer to the FBI, which has been investigating the search warrant application for Taylor’s apartment that led to the fatal raid.
The Courier Journal asked Shaw if she intended to demand that Detective Joshua Jaynes show why he shouldn’t be held in contempt for swearing in an affidavit that he “verified through a U.S. Postal Inspector that suspected drug dealer Jamarcus Glover has been receiving packages” at Taylor’s home.
Records obtained by The Courier Journal and first reported by WDRB show that Louisville police were told before the March 13 raid that no packages “suspicious or otherwise” had been delivered to Glover at Taylor’s residence in the months before she was shot and killed by police executing a no-knock search warrant.
