On Wednesday, 11 March, 2020, former president Donald Trump declared the coronavirus pandemic a national emergency. Two days later, on Friday, March 13, 2020, police officers killed Breonna Taylor. One year later, we still have the COVID-19 pandemic, and although the city of Louisville has agreed to pay Taylor’s family $ 12 million, some black people still don’t feel that Breonna Taylor has been served justice. Today there were several demonstrations in New York City.
On Tuesday, June 23, 2020, the LMPD fired Brett Hankison for blindly firing through the covered patio door and window of Taylor’s apartment. On Tuesday, September 15, 2020, the city of Louisville agreed to pay Taylor’s family $12 million and reform police practices. On Wednesday, September 23, 2020, a state grand jury indicted Brett Hankison on three counts of wanton endangerment for endangering Taylor’s neighbors with his shots. None of the officers involved in the raid has been charged in Taylor’s death. Myles Cosgrove was determined to have fired the fatal shot that killed Taylor. On Friday, October 2, 2020, recordings from the grand jury investigation into the shooting were released. Two of the jurors released a statement saying that the grand jury was not presented with homicide charges against the officers. Several jurors have also accused Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron and the police of covering up what happened.
