We are raising money on behalf of our loved one Kenneth Walker III for his legal representation. We appreciate the love and support he has received thus far, and are now asking for your financial support to help the truth be discovered and defended in this case. In the early hours of March 13, 2020, the Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) used force-ably entered the apartment of Breonna Taylor, where Kenneth Walker and Breonna lay asleep. The police were there to serve a warrant on a person that did not live at the address and who was already in police custody.
The 3 officers of the LMPD claim to have announced themselves, however neither Kenneth, Breonna, nor any of the neighbors heard them do so. Kenneth, in self-defense, fired shots believing the police to be intruders, with the intention of protecting himself and Breonna. The police fired over 20 shots into the small apartment, killing Breonna. She was unarmed and died from > 8 gunshot wounds. Kenneth's life was also endangered, but fortunately he survived.
Rather than admitting their wrongdoing, the police arrested and charged Kenneth with the attempted murder of a police officer. Kenneth was being held on a $250,000 cash bond until his judge released him on home incarceration.
The Fraternal Order of Police have condemned the Judge’s actions as they continue to try to paint a picture of Kenneth as a violent offender who is dangerous to society. Kenneth is not a violent offender; he is not a drug dealer. He is a hardworking young man, who by the laws of the State of Kentucky, has a right to defend himself and his home.
So not only is Kenneth left to mourn the murder of his girlfriend, Breonna Taylor, he is left literally fighting for his life, liberty and freedom.
Kenneth is innocent of these charges and we need help to raise the funds to pay for his legal defense.
We appreciate the love and support he has received thus far and are now asking for your financial support to help the truth be heard and to exonerate Kenneth.
Any amount that is donated is appreciated. We thank you in advance. God bless you and continue to pray for our families.
Kenny Walker witnessed his girlfriend's death at the hands of police officers, was intimidated and targeted by the LMPD before charges were later dismissed, and has been through hell since. Now one of the officers on the raid that killed Kenny's girlfriend is suing him for assault and “emotional distress.” This is in spite of the fact that:
- it was Kenneth who endured a home invasion by armed plainclothes intruders
- it was Kenneth who watched his girlfriend die before his eyes
- it was Kenneth who was intimidated and jailed
- it was Kenneth who was charged for attempted murder
- it was Kenneth who watched the men who killed his girlfriend escape any charges related to her death, much less convictions
After midnight on March 13th, Kenneth Walker was relaxing in his girlfriend’s Louisville apartment when he heard loud, disturbing knocks coming from his girlfriend’s front door. Repeated questions asking “Who is it?” received no response other than insistent, frightening thuds.
Kenny was understandably scared, and did what any reasonable young man would do - he grabbed his legally registered handgun and hoped the aggressors would leave.
They didn’t. The door flew open. He fired one shot, low to the ground, trying to scare off the intruders before they could hurt him or his girlfriend. In response, the invaders open-fired into the apartment. And in moments, Kenny’s girlfriend lay dying on the floor.
You know her name, but here it is again: Breonna Taylor.
Kenny, terrified, called his mother, and then 911. He frantically reported that intruders shot his girlfriend, asked for help, and then he called Breonna’s mother to tell her that her daughter had been assaulted.
There were police all around when he walked out of the apartment. Kenny assumed they’d arrived to help his girlfriend, but as they pointed their guns at him, red-faced and screaming, he realized the truth.
It’s outrageous for one of the men partially responsible for all that, to sue the man who endured it.
The raid that killed Breonna Taylor was poorly conceived, nightmarishly executed, and hastily covered-up. The subsequent grand jury proceedings were farcical and staged. Daniel Cameron’s statements were disingenuous, at best. Jon Mattingly’s lawsuit is the nearly-unbelievable next step in this ongoing mockery of justice.
Help us fight it!
