LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The previous Louisville Metro Police officer who fatally shot Breonna Taylor has a brand new job in regulation enforcement.
WHAS-TV reported that the Carroll County Sheriff’s Workplace confirmed Saturday the hiring of Myles Cosgrove who was fired from the police division in January 2021 for violating use-of-force procedures and failing to make use of a physique digital camera throughout the raid on Taylor’s house.
Taylor, a Black lady, was killed March 13, 2020 by police executing a narcotics search warrant. Not one of the three white officers who fired into Taylor’s house had been charged by a grand jury in her demise.
Carroll County’s Chief Deputy Robert Miller pointed to this truth in reference to Cosgrove’s hiring.
Investigators mentioned Cosgrove fired 16 rounds into the house after the entrance door was breached and Taylor’s boyfriend fired a shot at them. Federal ballistics specialists mentioned they consider the shot that killed Taylor got here from Cosgrove.
In November, the Kentucky Legislation Enforcement Council voted to not revoke Cosgrove’s state peace officer certification. This meant he may apply for different regulation enforcement jobs within the state.
A protest in Carroll County has already been deliberate on Monday in response to his hiring.
