Breonna Taylor was an African-American emergency medical technician in Louisville, KY who aspired to a lifelong career in health care and starting a family. She was only 26 years old when police officers, executing a no-knock search warrant after midnight on March 13 of this year, battered down her door and killed her.
Police raided Breonna’s home, believing another man suspected of selling drugs had used her apartment to receive packages. No drugs were found. One of the officers involved was fired because he was also being accused of sexual harassment; the other officers were placed on administrative reassignment. None of them face criminal charges.
Breonna was murdered in her own home by police officers who were willing to destroy property, families, and lives to execute a drug search warrant. Breonna, like too many others, deserves justice, but it won’t come unless we speak up. Call Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron to demand justice for Breonna Taylor.
