I do not understand how this former police officer is not facing any murder charges such as reckless homicide. WRT "wanton endangerment", it doesn't seem to matter if the person breaking that law has killed someone as the result of their actions.

3 counts of wanton endangerment for killing somebody. This may go over like a turd in a punch bowl.

It is fairly common for someone who "shoots up a house" to be tried for murder if someone in the house is killed. I don't know why that doesn't work here. I can only see this as a hole in Kentucky state law.

He was charged for shooting up the neighboring apartments where no one died.

Really, there was no choice but to let the officers off. They had a warrant, they were fired upon, they returned fire. All according to their training.

The problem as I see it is with the warrant serving process. Why are officers not trained to announce a warrant and wait for acknowledgement especially at midnight when homeowners are apt to be very disoriented? The current process is ripe for exactly this kind of outcome where the homeowner fires in the belief there is a home invasion in progress and the police fire back.

Do Louisville officers in a rich/white neighborhoods announce they have a warrant (and I've not seen independent corroboration that they did that) and then barge in? Would they have served the warrant in the dead of night? If the rich or white are served warrants differently, then there is a legitimate charge that the system is corrupt or racist. Perhaps the grand jury should be looking into the commanders that made the decision to serve the warrant at that hour.

The laws regarding no-knock warrants conflict with the laws governing self-defense.

David French's piece is a good starting point, I think.
