Cop Involved In The Killing Of Breonna Taylor Gets New Book Deal

The officer concerned in Breonna Taylor‘s killing has acquired a brand new guide deal.

Conservative media firm Each day Wire is launching its personal publishing division referred to as DW Books, WDRB information experiences. As a part of that enterprise, it has tapped former Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly for a partnership to publish his guide “The Fight for Truth: The Inside Story Behind The Breonna Taylor Tragedy.”

Earlier than DW Books signed on to publish the guide, Simon & Schuster initially mentioned it will publish it. Nonetheless, hours later, the corporate walked again its determination to distribute it.

On Twitter, Simon and Schuster wrote: “Like much of the American public, earlier today Simon & Schuster learned of plans by distribution client Post Hill Press to publish a book by Jonathan Mattingly. We have subsequently decided not to be involved in the distribution of this book.”

Again in April, Kentucky state Rep. Attica Scott condemned the information of Mattingly’s guide, saying, “People love to profit off of Black pain and tragedy. It sells.”

On the other aspect, DW Books says they’re okay with shifting ahead with Mattingly’s guide. “Simon & Schuster was too afraid to tell his (Mattingly’s) story, but we’re not,” DW Books Vice President of Publishing Alyssa Cordova instructed The Related Press.
