Fury Over Kentucky Greek Restaurant Showing Police Shooting Video

KENTUCKY – Diners at Anna’s Restaurant, a Greek eatery in a Bowling Green, Kentucky converted church, said they were furious they could see and hear video footage of police shooting and killing an African-American woman in 2020.

Breonna Taylor was shot in her Louisville, Kentucky apartment when at least seven police officers forced entry into the apartment as part of a drug dealing investigation raid.

Customers at the restaurant, owned by Vilson Qehaja, said they were outraged over the event hosted by a Republican Woman’s Club and featuring John Mattingly, one of the officers in the raid.

Two patrons tell CNN they heard audio clips of gunshots, sirens, and general commotion while they sat at their dimly lit tables, but neither could say for certain whether these were videos of Taylor’s death.

“These patrons had to see and listen to graphic descriptions of the incident which killed Breonna Taylor because Mattingly was provided video equipment, a microphone, and a speaker and was able to be heard throughout the restaurant,” the NAACP said. “That’s just wrong. It’s just absolutely wrong. It’s not okay,” said former Anna’s employee, Aaron Preuett.
