LeBron James uses media interview after first scrimmage to ‘shed light on justice for Breonna Taylor’

Major miscalculation on the part of officers contributed to the tragic death of Breonna Taylor

“I want to continue to shed light on justice for Breonna Taylor and her family and everything that is going on with this situation,” James said after the Lakers played in a scrum against the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday.

He’s the latest NBA player to use his time with reporters to steer the conversation towards the Taylor case.

Philadelphia 76ers forward Tobias Harris only had one topic he would discuss in his media session on Monday.

“We want to make sure that (Kentucky Attorney General) Daniel Cameron stops the cops and officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death, and that’s all I have to say,” Harris said.

Harris said that would be his answer to every question. His availability lasted less than a minute.

James also called for arrests in the case.

“As the leader of this league, I want her family to know that, and I want the state of Kentucky to know that we feel for her and that we want justice,” James continued. “What is right is right, and what is wrong is wrong.”

Breonna Taylor
Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician, was killed when police broke down the door to her apartment in an attempted drug injection and shot her eight times, in Louisville, Kentucky. A policeman involved in his fatal shooting was fired last month, according to the police department, more than three months after Taylor’s death.

None of the officers involved in the shooting have been charged with a crime.
