Justice For Breonna Taylor

Thomas Hengge | United States

Protestors march across the Williamsburg Bridge, September 23, 2020.

Thousands of demonstrators in New York City took to the streets yesterday, marching in peaceful protest following the Kentucky Attorney General’s announcement that only one officer involved in the murder of Breonna Taylor will be charged.

Despite pressure from the public for months following Taylor’s shooting, an EMT shot dead as she slept in her bed during a botched warrant execution, all but one officer is being charged—and not for murder.

The charges against Louisville police officer Brett Hankison that killed Taylor are not for the bullets that hit her, but those that missed.

Hankison is being charged with “wanton endangerment” for firing rounds into a neighbors apartment. It is the lowest-level felony issuable, and if found guilty, he faces a maximum of five years in prison.

This is what the streets looked like in New York City.
