In revisionist history, perhaps the Union troops hunting down John Wilkes Booth were only interested in him because of some ‘wanton endangerment’. We do know who’s a snake in these counterfactual historical narratives.
Detective Cosgrove apparently fired the fatal round into Taylor but is not being charged.
None of the charges in Breonna Taylor's case are directly related to her killing. The “wanton endangerment” charges are for endangering her neighbors in the process of shooting her to death.

More likely will be eventual Federal civil rights charges against the two cops not charged today.

How is Louisville not an anarchist jurisdiction when bands of armed terrorists are walking the streets?

“Burn LouisvilIe” is trending. The top tweets about it are:
– Somebody telling people that only Russian bots are tweeting this. (No evidence of that.)
– A pro-Trump guy claiming social media censorship
– Somebody claiming the hashtag is a pro-Trump trap. pic.twitter.com/UMoG3MqVOx

Trump is counting on chaos to stay in power.

The GOP used narrative warfare to run out the clock on the 2000 presidential recount by orchestrating the Brooks Brothers riot (via Roger Stone) & falsely accusing Ds of a “power grab” (flipping the script). This is what Trump is doing. #NarrativeWarfare https://t.co/yVsgu7Gdox

This is how democracy dies.
A president so desperate to cling to power that he won’t commit to a peaceful transition of power.
That he seeks to throw out millions of votes.
And a Republican Party too craven to say a word.
But we will fight back. America belongs to the people. https://t.co/mIVjh78Xk9

If you're surprised that @TeamTrump is gaming out whether they can use @GOP-controlled state legislatures to override the popular vote and hand swing state electoral votes to @realDonaldTrump, you should have read this reporting I did BACK IN MAY. https://t.co/PcgWZrIaPn
