The city Louisville, Kentucky, announced Tuesday they had come to a 12 million dollar settlement with Breonna Taylor’s murder. While this is one of the largest settlements in Louisville history, it does not hold the officers involved accountable for their actions in killing Breonna Taylor.
Last Sunday marked six months since Breonna Taylor’s death, and we have still yet to hear any news on the next steps for the police who busted the front door in the middle of the night while she and her boyfriend were sleeping. Taylor’s and many other unjustifiable deaths, such as Ahmaud Arbery and Geroge Floyd, have sparked the nation to continue fighting for justice, even in the climate of a global pandemic; however, unlike the mention of the names above. We look forward to the upcoming weeks as Taylors case is now in the hands of the federal court systems.
