Today we send our support to Breonna Taylor’s family and all of us who still grieve her tragic death. She deserves more than this, and we believe that when the Equal Rights Amendment is a part of our Constitution, she and all women and girls will have more rights and protections.
A grand jury has returned an indictment against just one police officer of the three involved in the no-knock incident that resulted in six bullets killing her.
Former officer Brett Hankison, who fired bullets that entered another apartment, has been charged with wanton endangerment.
Kentucky’s Attorney General in announcing the indictment said that under current Kentucky law, Breonna’s death was a “justified killing”– the officers were within their self-defense rights to return fire of her boyfriend.
To those of us who have waited six months for justice for Breonna Taylor, this is not nearly enough. We await the investigation and findings of the FBI.
Until then, we will continue to ask, “Where is the justice for Breonna Taylor?”
