Still No Justice For Breonna Taylor

What A Day - September 24, 2020 - 18:11

Yesterday, the grand jury in Jefferson County, Kentucky announced that only one of the officers who shot at Breonna Taylor would be indicted… and that officer’s charges don’t have anything to do with Taylor’s killing. Last night following the decision, two police officers were shot in downtown Louisville.We spoke to Kentucky state representative Charles Booker hours after the decision about what comes next. Booker has been organizing and protesting in the streets for months for Breonna Taylor and racial justice.And in headlines: lawyers for the family of Dijon Kizzee dispute LASD’s account of his shooting, four protestors from Kenosha sue Facebook, and Seattle’s city council overrides the Mayor to cut funding to the police.Show Links:Hood To The Holler: https://hoodtotheholler.org/The Bail Project: https://bailproject.org/louisville/?form=donateInvest/Divest Louisville: https://www.investdivest.org/
