Breaking: A judge has ruled in favor of the anonymous Breonna Taylor grand
juror, meaning the juror CAN speak publicly about the grand jury proceedings

"This Court finds that the traditional justification for secrecy in this matter
are no longer relevant"
.......
" IT IS HEREBY ORDERED Anonymous Grand Juror #1's motion to release grand jury
proceedings is GRANTED...Any participant in those proceedings, including grand
jurors, may disclose such information, subject to the trial court's order
regarding"
.....
The anonymous juror's attorney just sent out a press release with a statement
by the juror. It confirms what many have suspected:

"The grand jury was not presented any charges other than the three Wanton
Endangerment charges against Detective Hankison."
....
The Breonna Taylor juror's statement is very damning:

"The grand jury didn't agree certain actions were justified, nor did it decide
the indictment should be the only charges in the Breonna Taylor case. The grand
jury was not given the opportunity to deliberate on those charges"
