Tamika Palmer, Breonna Taylor’s mother is calling out BLM after she read about BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors’ purchase of four homes for $3.2 million dollars.
She said the group fundraised off from her daughter’s death yet failed to use even a nickel of it to aid the family in their time of need.
She is calling them frauds and that she is sick of hearing about them. She is obviously no fan of the BLM movement.
Breonna Taylor died during a police knock and announce the raid. Taylor’s boyfriend admits he shot first and an officer was wounded and Taylor was hit and died from the exchange. There were rumors started that Taylor was killed as she laid in bed asleep.
BLM used the tragedy to raise money but they kept it all and did not share it with Taylor’s family. She is angry that while she worries about making the rent, a member of BLM can buy four houses.
Last September Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced that there will be no charges filed against two of the Louisville police officers involved in the raid but a third policeman was charged with wanton endangerment which carries a penalty of one to five years.
Wanton endangerment is a Class D felony. This despite the fact that the police were shot at first with LMPD Sgt. Jon Mattingly being shot. He has fully recovered from his wounds.
Breonna Taylor’s mom went off on BLM and said the organization has not helped her family at all.
“I have never personally dealt with BLM Louisville and personally have found them to be fraud, Attica Scott another fraud,” Breonna’s mom Tamika Palmer said in a Facebook post.
“I could walk in a room full of people who claim to be here for Breonna’s family who don’t even know who I am, I’ve watched y’all raise money on behalf of Breonna’s family who has never done a damn thing for us nor have we needed it or asked so Talk about fraud.”
She concluded with: “I’m a say this before I go I’m so sick of some of y’all and I was last anybody who needs it I’m with this shit enough is enough!!”
