that's why get into the whole question of recklessness they get you into a mass case that easily could have been done. >>i think the decision was these officers were there they were firing in defense of their own life send out. and they were firing until the threat subsided. >>meantime president trump is praising kentucky's republican attorney general for his handling of the investigation when asked about the case the president said that the attorney general daniel cameron is quote really brilliant and the star. >>and he made a statement that i'll just it just is just this is often easy. it does not fit the mold of public opinion and it does not conform. to shifting standards it. it says only to the facts into the law. if we simply actor in a motion are outraged is no justice mob justice is a chess
is just a side by violence is not just as. it just becomes that they heard that i said write that down from a place because i think it's it was a terrific statement. he's handling it very well. >>the president said he soon and be speaking to kentucky governor andy bashir. >>democratic presidential nominee, joe biden reacted to the ruling saying quote we need to start addressing the use of excessive force banning choke holds and overhauling no knock warrants. he went on to add that he knows that people are frustrated and that they have the right to peacefully protest. however he says violence is not acceptable. and by his running mate senator kamala harris also responded saying in part quote, i'm thinking of briana taylor's family who still grieving the loss of a daughter and sister. we must never stop speaking brianna's name as we work to reform our justice system including overhauling no knock warrants. very families who have been no had their loved ones killed at
the hands of law enforcement are calling the ruling frustrating. but not shocking. they say the decision isn't justice for taylor and it's part of a system that continues to target and rob americans of their rights crawford jonathan mccall reports. >>it's a tight knit family where the members have been forced together through tragedy. each of them losing a loved one at the hands of law enforcement and now that the news that the officers who killed breonna taylor won't be directly charged with her death. don't causing them to reopen and relive their own pain for its people are. >>has been brought to her account and very much as 13 and i hope more people open their eyes in the house. >>i read this problem and through virtual call wednesday evening, they tried to console him heal one another from the news that they say is disappointing but not shocking kat brooks in says taylor's death is a clear cut sign that more needs to be done to protect black women who are also killed by police in

alone may not be enough to effect the change they want to see they may have to pack the polls in order to get their message across. >>what's going to need to happen is we're going to have to actually push out some of these fools who are it because we have political cowards at the state capitol. they did just you know they they just haven't they just haven't done their job. >>that was jonathan mccall reporting for us this morning that earlier this month sanli under officer jason fletcher was charged with manslaughter. in the april shooting death of steven taylor. fletcher is the first officer here in the bay area to be charged in connection to a deadly shooting since 2009. meanwhile, a protest is set for this morning at 11 o'clock in oakland, it will be held at the brianna taylor mural that's located on 15th and broadway. we'll take a break it's now 6 o 9 coming up burglaries are on the rise in san francisco we're going to hear from neighbors on the alarming uptick. >>a crime and also president trump apparently won't commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the
