Three major jurors in the investigation into the police operation that killed 26-year-old Breona Taylor are now calling for Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R) to be implicated over allegations that he misbehaved.
Jurors on Friday filed a petition with the House of Representatives, arguing that Cameron had violated public confidence and had also misrepresented the grand jury’s key findings, according to Louisville Courier Journal, which first announced the complaint.
A press release from the lawyer representing the jurors, who remained anonymous to protect their identities, told the jurors, “it is truly a testament to the Kentucky Constitution that they are able to be here today to expose injustice and demand public accountability. “
Lawyer Kevin Glouger added: “It is an honor and humility for me to serve them.”
“The grand jurors did not choose this battle,” Glogower said. “It simply came to our notice then. These are randomly selected citizens who were forced to participate in a grand jury and were horribly abused by the most powerful law enforcement officer in Kentucky. ”
According to Louisville, CA, public radio station WFPL, Friday’s petition reads: “Attorney General Cameron has deceived the American people and citizens of this community with regard to the work and involvement of his office in the investigation of Breona Taylor and the resulting legal action.”
The petition also alleges that Cameron misused public funds by joining a lawsuit against the results of the Pennsylvania election in 2020, and also supported illegal actions as a member of the executive committee of the National Bar Association, which has helped fund robots telling people to participate in the January 6 March for the Capitol Trump.
Cameron’s office did not immediately respond to The Hill’s request for comment on the impeachment petition.
The grand jury had investigated the execution of Louisville police on a search warrant for Taylor’s apartment in March 2020, during which several shots were fired, some of which struck and killed Taylor.
Cameron announced in September that the grand jury had filed only three charges of impartial threat against one of the officers, with none of the officers facing charges specifically related to Taylor’s death.
However, following the grand jury’s decision, a number of jurors in the case said their findings had been misrepresented.
At a news conference, Cameron said there were six possible murder charges before the grand jury in their investigation. But a number of large jurors said so they they were not given the opportunity to discuss additional fees outside the censuses for impartial threat.
The Hill also contacted attorney Ben Crump, who has represented Taylor’s family before called for the grand jury’s decision in September “Scandalous and insulting.”
Cameron’s impeachment petition comes amid similar actions against other Kentucky government officials in recent weeks.

Andy Beshir for executive action in response to the coronavirus pandemic, on the other hand against State Representative Robert Gofort (P) for an incident in which he allegedly tried to strangle a woman ,, Associated Press.
