Two police officers shot during Louisville protests
Wo police officers were shot and wounded late on Wednesday in Louisville, Kentucky, during protests ignited by a grand jury decision that civil rights activists decried as a miscarriage of justice in the fatal police shooting of Breonna Taylor.
A juror in the Breonna Taylor case said Tuesday that prosecutors skipped a major step. Prosecutors never presented the grand jury with homicide charges against three police officers. The three officers being the ones involved in Taylor’s killing, reports HuffPost. The new allegations raise additional questions over how prosecutors handled the killing of Taylor. Breonna Taylor, a Black woman, was shot by police in her own apartment in Louisville, Kentucky.
Breonna Taylor's aunt Bianca Austin on Friday read a statement on behalf of her sister, Taylor's mother Tamika Palmer, reacting to the verdict of a grand jury that ultimately decided not to charge any of the Louisville police officers with the killing of Breonna Taylor during a botched drug raid.
