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.
UPDATE: Johnson is charged with 2 counts of assault on a police officer and multiple counts of wanton endangerment
