The Breonna Taylor affair never seems to go away entirely. And it shouldn’t. Because this is one of the most tragic cases where the police went wrong in a black neighborhood, where an innocent young woman lost her life while lying in bed watching a movie with her boyfriend .
His story continues to resonate and disturb, because justice has yet to be served on his behalf – and because the prosecutor in the case has attempted to use the rules of the court system, starting with the great secrecy. jury, to ensure that justice would not be delivered and to try to keep his actions hidden.
Yes, it is true that the Taylor family secured the largest settlement in Louisville, Kentucky history, a record $ 12 million for wrongful death action, along with promises of ministerial reform. It is also true that charges were laid in the case against one of the officers involved in his tragic gunshot death, only the charges relating to the former officer were not for murder, or even manslaughter, they were for “gratuitous endangerment” for endangering Taylor neighbors with gunshots in the walls. It is true. You read correctly. The officer was charged, not for shooting Taylor, or for entering her apartment wrongly, but for shooting at a wall – not the young woman lying in bed watching television with her little one. friend peacefully in her own apartment when she was killed. She had no criminal record, nor did he. They were just in the right place at the wrong time. The officers involved were serving an arrest warrant for another man who was Taylor’s former boyfriend. Apparently he was already in detention.
