Breonna Taylor's family, attorney Crump respond to grand jury decision | FULL
CA, 25 Sep 2020
The family of Breonna Taylor and their attorney Benjamin Crump are expected to hold a news conference in Louisville, Ky. on Friday, responding to the grand jury decision not to charge police officers directly with her death.
The grand jury decision, announced by Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron on Wednesday, was immediately denounced by civil rights advocates as the latest miscarriage of justice in a U.S. law enforcement system corrupted by racial inequity.
Cameron said there was “no conclusive” evidence that any of the 10 shots fired by former Detective Brett Hankison, the officer indicted on wanton endangerment charges for firing into neighbouring homes, ever struck Taylor.
The second night of anti-racism protests got off to a tense but mostly peaceful start in Louisville on Thursday following the decision.
Taylor, a 26-year-old Louisville emergency medical worker studying to become a nurse, was shot several times in her hallway after three plainclothes detectives busted down the door of her apartment after midnight on March 13. The officers entered the home as part of an investigation into her ex-boyfriend who lived across town. No drugs were found at Taylor’s home.
