George Clooney: I’m ‘Ashamed’ Of Grand Jury’s Decision In Breonna Taylor Case

🚨 POLL: Is it wrong to ‘second-guess’ a Grand Jury’s decision?


Hollywood actor George Clooney expressed his disdain over the grand jury’s decision to not bring murder charges against the police officers involved in the Breonna Taylor case.

Clooney told the Hollywood Reporter that he is “ashamed” of the decision.

“I was born and raised in Kentucky. Cut tobacco on the farms of Kentucky. Both my parents and my sister live in Kentucky,” he said.

“I own a home in Kentucky, and I was there last month. The justice system I was raised to believe in holds people responsible for their actions,” Clooney continued.

“Her name was Breonna Taylor and she was shot to death in her bed by 3 white police officers, who will not be charged with any crime for her death.”

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron issued a warniong earlier in the day to “celebrities, influencers, and activists who having never lived in Kentucky, will try to tell us how to feel, suggesting they understand the facts of this case and that they know our community and the commonwealth better than we do.” Clooney’s remarks followed those of AG Cameron.

More from Breitbart:

A police investigation found that Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired on police first. Police returned fire. Taylor was shot by six bullets, according to Attorney General Cameron. The FBI concluded that the fatal shot had been fired by Detective Myles Cosgrove…

“But they don’t,” Cameron said.

The Academy Award-winner took issue with Cameron’s warning, stating that, as a Kentucky native, he does, in fact, “know the community.”

“I know the commonwealth,” Clooney told the outlet. “And I was taught in the schools and churches of Kentucky what is right and what is wrong. I’m ashamed of this decision.”

Protests and riots broke out in Louisville following the announcement of the grand jury’s decision, which ultimately indicted one officer involved in the March raid with three counts of wanton endangerment.
