The Louisville Metro Police Department has fired Joshua Jaynes and Myles Cosgrove, two of the police officers involved in the botched March raid that killed Breonna Taylor.
In the termination letters, the Louisville Police Department said that Cosgrove had violated the department's rules on use-of-force and body cameras during the raid and that Jaynes had violated policies on truthfulness and using a search warrant, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.Other officers involved in the raid were either exonerated or received one-day suspensions following an internal investigation from the police department, according to the Courier-Journal. Both Cosgrove and Jaynes were on administrative reassignment during the duration of the investigation.
Cosgrove and Jaynes are both able to appeal their firings, according to the Courier-Journal. Hankison has already filed an appeal for his firing, which will proceed once his criminal case is over.Cosgrove has already blasted the decision, blaming the police department for buckling at "political pressures."
