Re: Jody David Armour

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.

It is especially disturbing for me to see the attorney general mislead the American public that way" regarding Breonna Taylors death, he said.
