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 lifeless in her personal residence in March.
Steve Romines, Walker’s lawyer, obtained a name from Perry after he made the donation, in keeping 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 objective.
Walker was with Taylor on the night time 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 have been intruders breaking into the residence.
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. Nevertheless, an investigation discovered clear proof of that allegation. Nonetheless, Mattingly sued him for assault and emotional misery.
