Breonna Taylor decision reopens U.S. racial wound

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 25 Sep, 2020
  • Breonna Taylor decision reopens U.S. racial wound

America's streets are again pulsing with anger and frustration, this time over the deadly police shooting of 26-year-old Breonna Taylor.

Protesters flooded cities across the U.S. after a grand jury in Kentucky did not indict the officers who fired the fatal shots.

It's just one more eruption of unrest in a year marked by protests against how Black Americans are treated by police.

Taylor was killed in March in a hail of police bullets during a botched drug raid in Louisville, the centre of Wednesday's protest.

Of the three officers involved, only one faces any charges, and they are unrelated to Taylor's death.

Brett Hankison faces three counts of wanton endangerment for blindly firing his weapon into the homes of Taylor's neighbours.
