“The judge who signed the search warrant failed her. The terrorist who broke down her door failed her,” said Breonna’s aunt as she read a statement written by Breonna’s mother while wearing Breonna’s EMT jacket. “The system as a whole has failed her. You didn’t just rob me and my family, you robbed the world of a queen.”

Benjamin Crump held the press conference to give the family a chance to speak amid protests in the city calling for justice for Breonna.

Crump also used the conference as an opportunity to call on Cameron to release the transcript of the grand jury proceedings, according to CNN.

“Breonna Taylor’s entire family is heartbroken … and confused and bewildered, just like all of us, as to what did Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron present to the grand jury,” Crump said. “Did he present any evidence on Breonna Taylor’s behalf, or did he make a unilateral decision to put his thumb on the scales of justice to help try to exonerate and justify (the killing) by these police officers?”

“Release the transcript!”

Crump revealed that he is counting on a different, federal investigation for justice for Breonna after only one of the officers who shot her, Brett Hankison, was indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for putting Breonna’s neighbors in harm’s way with his wreckless firing.

We’ll keep you posted on any updates from Crump and the secondary investigation.
