Just a week after the Louisville Metro PD Chief Yvette Gentry announced that he would fire 2 police officers for their deadly role Breonna Taylor raid … the ax fell.
The LMPD fired the investigators Joshua Jaynes and Myles Cosgrove on Tuesday – citing “extreme violation of our policy.” Cosgrove, of course, was one of the police officers present during the raid. He also fired.
Jaynes was not on it at the raid, but he submitted the documents to the judge to get the order. She is the officer who had information from a postal inspector that a drug suspect — Breonna’s ex-boyfriend — had received packages at her home. Jaynes later admitted that he never checked this information in the mail.
As we reported … the LMPD has already fired Brett Hankison after finding that he had “violated obedience to rules and regulations” while fulfilling the order. Keep in mind that Hankison is the only officer the a accusation of unintentional endangerment, but the accusation stemmed from the shooting in the apartment next door and not from the shooting of Breonna.
Taylor and BF, Kenneth Walker, were asleep when the LMPD raided his apartment on the morning of March 13th.
His death sparked controversy … which included the officers who originally reported Breonna in the raid. Prosecutors apparently tried lubricate it during an indictment with an ex-BF.
