Joy Reid: Breonna Taylor’s killer is turning her death into ‘personal profit, right wing stardom’

03:48

The Louisville police officer who fired at Breonna Taylor during the deadly raid on Taylor’s apartment is writing a book, but it won’t be distributed as planned by publishing giant Simon & Schuster. Joy says, “Lord, please grant me a country where killing Black people and those who support our right to survive to old age doesn’t make you a right wing celebrity … Jonathan Mattingly, who apparently will now seek to graduate from being a guy who ended the life of a young Black woman to a vampire who turns her death at his hands, into personal profit and right wing stardom.”
