Do you agree that the officers in the Breonna Taylor case should have been arrested and tried instead of letting the grand jury decide?

In theory, the grand jury should decide. The question is whether the jury was provided with all the pertinent evidence in the matter.
The problem is that the police should never have been there; the person they should have been looking for was already under arrest. Now, put yourself in the position of the guy trying to catch some zzzz. You hear people at your door in the middle of the night. He called 911. Then he tried to defend himself. All perfectly legal where you can "stand your ground". The cops burst in and apparently did not identify themselves, shooting wildly, hitting Ms Taylor, who was unarmed, six times, killing her. The police department acknowledged that they fouled up, giving Brionna Taylor's family a sizeable settlement. There is no question that the cops were in the wrong.

WHY Waste time.. THE same jury would have then found them NOT GUILTY..

You're not real clear on the concept of a grand jury I see. But the thing with cops is that even if they've done something you personally find abhorrent, it doesn't rise to the level of criminality unless it's "outside of training policy". It's the training that needs to be changed (and you don't get that by defunding departments).

The entire thing is a terrible thing. Something else is going on here.

Except for the one who fired blindly through the window, everything they did was in compliance with existng law.
There were no valid charges to arrest them.
What in blazes are you thinking???

no .. they were doing their job and the problem is the media doesnt explain the 'actual' facts .. they act like the cops did it wrong, they didnt, they did knock, and got shot at and one was hit .. so they returned fire .. if you hang out with a criminal like that your gonna get hurt or killed, thats life ..
