posted by Hannity Staff - 9.23.20

The City of Louisville, Kentucky braced Wednesday for a night of demonstrations in the aftermath of a Grand Jury’s decision not to pursue murder charges against three police officers in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor back in March.

“Former Sgt. Brett Hankison was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment for firing rounds during the raid that went into neighboring apartments, but not in the death of Taylor,” reports Fox News.

“Taylor, a 26-year-old Black emergency medical worker, was shot five times by officers who entered her home using a no-knock warrant during a drug investigation March 13. The warrant was connected with someone who did not live there, and no drugs were found during the search. The use of no-knock warrants is now banned in the city,” adds Fox.

MEDIA MOB: CBS News Describes Rand Paul’s Assault as ‘Protesters Confront Kentucky Senator’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.28.20

CBS News faced a growing backlash on social media Friday after the media outlet described Rand Paul’s assault from anti-police rioters as simply “protesters confront Kentucky Senator.”

“WATCH: Protesters confronted Kentucky Senator Rand Paul after attending the RNC at the White House, shouting at the lawmaker to acknowledge the shooting of Breonna Taylor,” posted CBS News’ official Twitter account.

 

Paul discussed his harrowing attack Thursday night after an unhinged mob descended on the Republican lawmaker; saying the crowd “would have killed me” if not for DC police officers.

“We walked one block, but as we walked we could see some police in the distance but we also saw a mob of people screaming and yelling. Fortunately, we got to the police, otherwise I don’t think we would have survived,” said Paul.

“The Policemen were forming a barricade with their bodies,” he added. “We waited, but the crowd was getting bigger and bigger and pushing in. It got worse and worse and worse. Finally, we decided to make a move. They were shouting threats to hurt us and kill us.”
