Jody Armour was interviewed on the Sojourner Truth with Margaret Prescod Podcast on the lack of charges against the police officers involved in Breonna Taylor's death. "As a law professor I teach my students that ethics are important to lawyers... It is especially disturbing for me to see the attorney general mislead the American public that way" regarding Breonna Taylors death, he said.
