Please say a prayer for my hometown Louisville Kentucky. The results of the Brianna Taylor grand jury was announced today only indicting one officer for 3 counts wanton endangerment. None indicted in her death.
I don’t know all the facts. No one can claim that they know all the facts. The report is inconclusive and has many gaps and unanswered questions.
I’m not going to try to accuse or convict anyone of anything without having all the details… The only thing I know is that anyone breaking in to my home, my wife and children threatened, I’ll respond violently with unrelenting deadly force. Is this what happened in this case? We still don’t know.
I’m not eloquent and I don’t have the whole story here. No one is going to react to this identically. In past events across the nation, we’ve seen senseless riots and violence. I don’t want to see that happen here. I don’t want to see people hurt each other. I don’t want our community broken or on fire.
Please, everyone, if you’re so inclined, say a prayer for my hometown and for people to act with respect, empathy and restraint.
I’m not of a mind to participate in these conflicts. I’m about defending my home and family. But like many regions in this country, if you’re coming here to take advantage of the situation, to cause havoc for no other purpose than create chaos, please know you will most likely meet with stern and vigorous opposition. This isn’t Portland or Seattle. Hopefully no one gets hurt.
