  • BBC News published this video item, entitled “Breonna Taylor: Police officer charged but not over death – BBC News” – below is their description.

    A police officer has been charged over the narcotics raid that resulted in the fatal shooting of a black woman at her home in the US state of Kentucky. Breonna Taylor, 26, a hospital worker, was shot multiple times as officers stormed her home on 13 March. Brett Hankison has been charged, not with Ms Taylor’s death, but with “wanton endangerment” for firing into a neighbour’s apartment in Louisville. Two other officers who were involved have not been charged. Under Kentucky law, someone is guilty of wanton endangerment if they commit an act that shows “an extreme indifference to the value of human life”. This lowest-level felony offence can come with a five-year sentence for each count. Mr Hankison was charged on three counts. #BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource
