Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly Sues Breonna Taylor’s Boyfriend Kenneth Walker for Shooting Him, Causing ‘Mental Anguish’

Louisville Police Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly has sued Kenneth Walker, the boyfriend of slain Kentucky woman Breonna Taylor. In a lawsuit filed Thursday, Mattingly asserted he was entitled to damages because the Walker shot him in the leg during a raid by law enforcement on March 13.

“Mattingly was shot and nearly killed by Kenneth Walker,” attorney Kent Wicker said in a statement obtained by CBS News. “He’s entitled to, and should, use the legal process to seek a remedy for the injury that Walker has caused him.”

The complain states Walker acted “willingly or maliciously.” The lawsuit added: “As a result, Defendant Mattingly is entitled to compensatory damages for the medical treatment, trauma, [physical] pain, and mental anguish he suffered.”

Mattingly and other Louisville police officers were attempting to execute a search warrant at Taylor’s apartment, in connection to a drug case against Taylor’s ex-boyfriend Jamarcus Glover. Walker said that he did now know that this was law enforcement at the door.

Walker opened fire, striking Mattingly in the leg, according to Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R). Mattingly’s lawyer previously released video recorded in the aftermath of the shooting, showing that the officer was wounded.

1. Like the guy who kills his parents and pleas for sympathy because he's an orphan.

2. Sorry Dude, George Zimmerman Rule. You're out.

Castle Domain Doctrine

Referred to as the "castle domain law," changes in state law in the summer of 2006 mean that a resident can almost always assume a person breaking into his or her home means to cause harm.

"If someone comes up on the dwelling or the premises, with the intent to commit a felony, the presumption (is) that they are there to cause death or serious bodily harm," Adams said. That "gives the owner, the person that is there, the presumptive right to use deadly physical force or physical force to repel any attacker or any invader."

3. Then he should NOT be a cop!

Frankly, at this point, I wish a group would come forward and sue HIM and the others on behalf of the African-American community for mental anguish and trauma!
