Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron Is Doing Everything Under The Sun Except Arresting The Cops Who Killed Breonna Taylor

Just recently, the attorney general tweeted about his efforts to get athletes back playing football.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is being blasted for focusing his attention on all things except Breonna Taylor.

Rather than offering transparency on where the Taylor case stands and taking swift action, like authorities involved in the cases of Rayshard Brooks and George Floyd, Cameron took to Twitter on June 20 to proudly share his efforts in helping a football association get their players back on the field safely amid coronavirus concerns. 

The attorney general posted pictures of himself alongside football coaches and tweeted about his mission to get athletes "back in action soon."

People replied to the tweet, furious that he would rather post photo ops with football coaches instead of focusing his attention on getting justice for Taylor.

"We don’t care about football. We care about arresting the cops who kiIIed Breonna Taylor," one person tweeted.

"Work on ways keeping citizens safe from murderous cops! Citizens of Louisville tear that city up if you want change. Look at what happened in Minneapolis!" another person wrote.

On Wednesday, Cameron took to Twitter again to share his efforts in denouncing calls for defunding the police.

"I joined a coalition of 17 Attorneys General in writing a letter denouncing the dangerous 'defund the police' movement," the attorney general tweeted. "As the letter states, 'our goal should be to empower law enforcement to legally & ethically fulfill their duties, not restrict their ability to protect us all.'"

Again, people replied to his tweet to share their frustrations with his actions. 

"Daniel, I’ve known you for a long time. The Daniel Cameron that I knew had a great heart. I can’t believe that you still haven’t taken action against the cops who murdered Breonna Taylor in her sleep. Come on, man. Grow a spine and do something," a person tweeted.

"You’ve got time for everything and anything but won’t: #ArrestBreonnaTaylorsKillers," another Twitter user wrote, pointing out his dispassion toward the case.

By Monday, people were on to his motives of continuing to place his attention elsewhere when pictures of his engagement party surfaced on social media.

While the date of the event is unknown, the photos show Cameron celebrating his engagement to an unidentified white woman with their loved ones around, clearly avoiding social distancing guidelines. 

The pictures quickly circulated online, with celebrities calling out the attorney general's apparent lack of interest in seeking justice for Taylor.

On an Instagram post by Amanda Seales, people expressed their shock over the pictures.

Arsenio Hall, Holly Robinson Peete, Elise Neal and Tiffany Haddish shared their thoughts in the comments of the post.

Tina Lawson, Beyoncé's mom, shared the pictures to her Instagram alongside a long caption expressing her frustrations with the attorney general and encouraging people to educate themselves on the people voted into office.

I was shocked to learn that the attorney general for Kentucky is a 34 year old black man. A republican . When Breonna’s Mother Tamika asked to speak with him , he had someone else call her. ! 💔💔 When he ran for office there are a lot of Black people that were excited and thought oh my God maybe we have a fair chance now because it will be a black man in this position ! He will be fair and unbiased towards Black people. They voted for him. Well That’s why it’s important to educate yourself on people who are running for office . I have no problem with who he marries , that is his personal business. That is not what this post is about ! I just don’t understand his actions !!! And where are their masks ?

Very little has taken place since Taylor was killed in her apartment in March, and only one of the three officers who raided her apartment has been fired, as Blavity previously reported.

Brett Hankison was fired from his job after Lousiville Metro Police Chief Robert Schroeder shared his disappointment in the officer's actions the night of the shooting. 

"I find your conduct a shock to the conscience," Schroeder wrote. "I am alarmed and stunned you used deadly force in this fashion."

Officer Myles Cosgrove and Sgt. John Mattingly remain on the job, and none of the three have been criminally charged with Taylor's death. 

On June 18, Cameron refused to give a timeline on when his office would be wrapping up its investigation into the case, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. He assured that the investigation was ongoing but would take "time and patience."
