People in Louisville and across the country are unleashing their anger after a Kentucky grand jury on Wednesday indicted one officer for allegedly endangering the white neighbors of Breonna Taylor during the police shooting that killed her.
Officer Brett Hankison, who has been fired, was indicted on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment for allegedly endangering Taylor’s white neighbors when he fired into the apartment complex.
The neighboring apartment had three people inside, thus the three charges against Hankison, said Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron. The other officers involved in Taylor’s death were not charged.
Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman, was shot dead by police while in her Louisville home on March 13. Taylor and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were asleep. These types of wanton miscarriage of justice have given rise to the rise of many Black peaceful paramilitary groups that are advocating for community defense and protection from the Police.
