TSR continued and posted: ‘This means the trial will be delayed for six additional months from the initial date. The judge named “a court slowdown caused by pandemic restrictions” as the formal reason for the date change.’
You may remember that Brett is a former police officer who was involved in the raid of Breonna Taylor’s home.
‘He is the only officer charged in the case. Brett is facing three counts of wanton endangerment for allegedly shooting into the apartment of one of Breonna’s former neighbours while serving the search warrant for the raid that ended in Breonna’s death. Brett has pled not guilty to the charges presented by a grand jury last September,’ TSR noted.
Som one said: ‘He’s not even being charged for the bullets that hit her! He’s being charged for the bullets that didn’t 💔’, and another follower posted this: ‘You guys are obviously not reading the caption. This is infuriating. They are delaying his court date.’
A commenter said: ‘I’m confused as to why the comment section is hype,’ and another follower posted this message: ‘why it’s taking them so long ?? don’t blame anything on no pandemic !!!’
