LeBron James Responds To Breonna Taylor Grand Jury Decision, Still Has ‘Zero Comment’ For L.A. Sheriff

Videos by OutKick

LeBron James, who had “zero comment” for Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva over his challenge to LeBron to put up money for the apprehension of the person responsible for shooting two of his deputies, wasted little time jumping on Twitter Wednesday to share his emotions over a grand jury deciding charges shouldn’t be filed in the death of Breonna Taylor.

“I’ve been lost for words today! I’m devastated, hurt, sad, mad! We want Justice for Breonna yet justice was met for her neighbors apartment walls and not her beautiful life,” LeBron wrote on Twitter, referencing  Louisville police officer Brett Hankison being indicted on three charges of wanton endangerment for allegedly shooting recklessly into a neighboring apartment. “Was I surprised at the verdict. Absolutely not but damnit I was & still am hurt and heavy hearted! I send my love to Breonna mother, family and friends! I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I’m sorry!!”

“The most DISRESPECTED person on earth is THE BLACK WOMAN! I promise you I’ll do my best to change this as much as I can and even more!! LOVE to you QUEENS all over this country and beyond!,” he added.

Asked this week about his rhetoric possibly inciting violence, LeBron said, “I’ve never in my 35 years ever condoned violence,” adding, “not one time have I ever said let’s act violent towards cops. I just said that what’s going on in our community is not OK.”

Last night in Louisville, two Louisville Metro police officers were shot during rioting. 127 people were arrested, including two reporters from The Daily Caller.

  1. You would think if LeBron was truly that mad about the mistreatment of black women he would direct 90% of his anger at a drug dealer boyfriend firing on officers who, as it turns out, we’re NOT serving a no-knock warrant. If that lunatic doesn’t shoot an officer none of this happens and everyone’s alive today. He’s directly to blame. Why is that so hard to grasp?

  2. LeBum is the biggest fraud to ever walk (carry the ball without dribbling) across the hardwood.
    LeBum: “I just said that what’s going on in our community is not OK.”
    Which community are you speaking about? Oh, the collective “community” where black on black violence is never mentioned?
    Get informed..read the stats that Jason refers to often.
    Get back to us.

    • Agree with this, Rick.

      Honestly, LeBron may be right that “The most DISRESPECTED person on earth is THE BLACK WOMAN!” But truly, who are the perpetrators? Are white cops doing all of the wrongdoing? Can we really only blame white people for the mistreatment of black people, especially black women? Whose to blame for the countless single black mothers and fatherless children in America? Whose to blame for the thousands of abortions and black-on-black murders that occur every year in America?

      Like you said, read the stats that Jason refers to. They are heartbreaking for America and the black community. The black community will never acquire the change it deserves (and it does deserve betterment from America and all parties/races involved) until it takes responsibility for its own wrongdoing. It starts with “leaders” like LeBron. Wish he would endeavor to be more honest. Wish someone on the left would stand up and set an example that is fair, balanced and positive minded in seeking actual solutions instead of inciting more problems. Unto ages of ages, amen.

      • Very well said, Bahad. That was the first thing that came to my mind — how black women are disrespected — and irony of ironies, the lack of self-awareness of Brentwood Man. I really don’t consider him a leader (and not because we’re from different worlds). He foments hatred almost every time he speaks; that’s not what any kind of thought leader does, unless his agenda is chaos.
        A lot of things have to change, but it has to start with looking inward. If the Black community sees us as white devils then there’s no hope of reconciliation.
        Amen, Bahad.

  3. The truth about Breonna Taylor (what you won’t hear on ESPCN and MSM)
    1. She wasn’t an EMT, she was terminated in 2017.
    2. She was knee deep in criminal drug dealing activities with her ex-boyfriend.
    3. She was on jailhouse recordings running drugs for her ex-boyfriend.
    4. She was under surveillance for months running drugs.
    5. She WAS on the warrant as was her car and her apartment.
    6. The officers did in fact knock and announce despite obtaining a “no-knock” exception on the warrant.
    7. Breonna’s boyfriend fired at officers striking an officer – officers fired back and Breonna took the shots. She was NOT asleep in her bed.

  4. LeChina James prefers to keep black people on the plantation and wants them to continue playing the race/victim card. He’s a hypocrite and an instigator of violence. He’s a black David Karesh. He tells his minions how to feel and lets them go do the dirty work for him
