On Wednesday, the grand jury revealed their decision not to charge any of the officers involved in the shooting of Breonna Taylor — directly with her murder.
Former officer Brett Hankison was indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment and two other officers who opened fire that night were not indicted.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said the three officers had fired 32 shots in the early hours of March 13 in response to a single round fired by Taylor’s boyfriend. Taylor’s boyfriend told the cops that he mistook police for intruders when they broke down the door while they were sleeping.
President Donald Trump called Cameron’s decision “really brilliant.”
“How ironic and typical that the only charges brought in Breonna Taylor’s case were for shots fired into the apartment of a white neighbor, while no charges were brought for the shots fired at Bre or into her Black neighbor’s apartment,” Benjamin Crump, the Taylor’s family attorney, tweeted.
Civilians headed to the streets of Lousiville in protest of the verdict.
