During an interview on Tuesday, Cameron accused Crump of spinning false narratives about shootings to mislead the public about cases. He specifically condemned Crump’s accusation that the attorney general’s office misled the grand jury in its consideration of charges against the officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death.

“This is the Ben Crump model. He goes into a city, creates a narrative, cherry-picks facts to establish, to prove that narrative, creates chaos in a community, misrepresents the facts, and then, he leaves with his money and then asks the community to pick up the pieces,” Cameron told Fox and Friends. “It is terribly irresponsible on his part to push such narratives, such falsehoods.”

“As the attorney general, I don’t have the luxury

Kentucky attorney general takes aim at lawyer for Breonna Taylor’s family: ‘This is the Ben Crump model’

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R) on Tuesday criticized civil rights lawyer Ben Crump for citing allegations of bias as reasoning for a special prosecutor to reopen the case surrounding Breonna Taylor’s death, with Cameron saying it was “irresponsible” for Crump “to push such narratives, such falsehoods.” 

Cameron’s response came after Crump, who is representing Taylor’s family, shared an open letter to Cameron claiming that the attorney general was “biased throughout the process and intentionally deprived justice for Breonna and her family.” 

Last week, Cameron revealed that he did not present any murder charges to the grand jury that heard the case of Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman who was shot and killed during a police drug raid on her apartment. 

In a Tuesday interview on “Fox & Friends,” Cameron said the claims made in the open letter did not accurately reflect the reality of the investigation.

‘SNL’: Megan Thee Stallion protests for Breonna Taylor case

Megan Thee Stallion delivered a politically charged performance of “Savage” for the Season 46 premiere of “SNL” on Saturday, taking a moment to protest the Breonna Taylor ruling and injustice against Black women.

The rapper performed a remix of her chart-topping song in front of a black screen emblazoned with the message “Protect Black Women” (and later bullet holes), pausing midway to play audio clips from Malcolm X’s famous “Who Taught You to Hate Yourself?” speech from 1962 as well as one from activist Tamika Mallory.

“Daniel Cameron is no different than the sellout Negros that sold our people into slavery,” Mallory could be heard saying, referring to the Kentucky Atty. Gen. who led the Taylor case. Taylor was killed in her apartment in March by Louisville police officers. A grand jury failed to charge any of the officers involved.

Megan Thee Stallion also played two clips from the Malcolm

Megan Thee Stallion’s solo debut on “Saturday Night Live” spoke volumes.

The rapper, who performed her songs “Savage” and “Don’t Stop” as the musical guest for the Chris Rock-hosted Season 46 premiere, made a powerful Black Lives Matter statement during her first performance. 

Midway through “Savage,” the screens behind the rapper flashed messages including “Protect Black women” as she paused the song entirely for audio from activists. She then appealed for the protection of Black women and Black men, and harshly criticized Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron over his handling of the Breonna Taylor case.

Taylor was killed in her apartment by Louisville police earlier this year, and a grand jury did not charge any of the officers involved for actions related to her death.
