Turns out that a number of legal eagles, particularly in Kentucky, are speculating that the reason no other cops were even charged in Sistah Breonna’s murder is because our intrepid black AG Danny Cameron probably did not even present a case against them to the Grand Jury, thus voiding any possibility that they could even be charged with anything at all.
