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, 2020, battered down her door and killed her.
On September 23, a grand jury handed down three charges of wanton endangerment against one of the three officers involved in Breonna’s murder for the gunshots that entered other apartments. The Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron argued that the police officers were officers “justified” in their lethal violence, even as the other two officers involved, including the man whose bullet killed Breonna, face no repercussions.
