Breonna Taylor officers charged is ‘momentous progress’, says attorney

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Breonna Taylor officers charged is ‘momentous progress’, says attorney” – below is their description.

The last week has seen significant developments in two of the most high-profile and horrific racism cases in the US.

Federal charges were filed against four police officers for their role in a raid which led to the death of Breonna Taylor.

And three white men were sentenced for federal hate crimes after they killed Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed Black jogger.

We spoke to Benjamin Crump, the attorney and asked if he and the Taylor family were disappointed that none of the officers involved were charged with murder.
