Tyler Perry Gives $100,000 To Breonna Taylor’s Boyfriend
Written by BET on December 13, 2020
Tyler Perry donated $100,000 on Sunday (Dec. 13) to the authorized protection fund of Kenneth Walker, the boyfriend of Breonna Taylor, who Louisville law enforcement officials shot useless in her personal condo in March.
Steve Romines, Walker’s legal professional, acquired a name from Perry after he made the donation, in line with Courier Journal.
“He noticed that Kenny had been sued, and he felt like that was a miscarriage of justice,” Romines stated.
Earlier than Perry’s contribution, the marketing campaign had raised simply $600 of its $100,000 purpose.
Walker was with Taylor on the evening that the cops executed a no-knock warrant for a suspect who was already in police custody. He fired a warning shot on the officers, whom he believed had been intruders breaking into the condo.
Officer Jonathan Mattingly, one of many cops who killed Taylor, is suing Walker. The cops claimed that Walker’s warning shot struck Mattingly within the leg. Nonetheless, an investigation discovered clear proof of that allegation. Nonetheless, Mattingly sued him for assault and emotional misery.
