“I stand behind the work of the members of this team,” he said.

When it comes to the Taylor case, Cameron would not say whether he supports a ban on no-knock warrants, which the state’s General Assembly could decide on in January.

“In the coming weeks ahead, this office, as we’ve committed to in the past, is going to assemble a task force to look at warrants generally,” Cameron said.

And even after two grand jurors came forward to say they were never given a chance to decide whether to indict any LMPD officers on homicide charges related to Taylor’s death, Cameron has not wavered on the outcome of the investigation.

Cameron has remained steadfast that the grand jurors agreed the officers were justified in firing upon Taylor.

“I have no qualms with anything that they’ve said. Obviously, we presented a recommendation. The grand jury ultimately makes the decision on that recommendation. But I have no qualms with anything that the grand jurors have said,” Cameron said.

Cameron also spoke about a letter Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, wrote to President-elect Joe Biden, asking the former vice president to appoint a special prosecutor.

“Well, I don’t want to speak about hypotheticals, but I stand firmly behind the work that our team did here. Vice President Biden and his team will ultimately make their own decisions. But at the end of the day, I’m proud of the work that was done by this office,” Cameron said.
