Breonna Taylor protests: Demonstrations erupt in New York after grand jury decision | LIVE

Global News published this video item, entitled “Breonna Taylor protests: Demonstrations erupt in New York after grand jury decision | LIVE” – below is their description.

Warning: Coverage is live and may contain violent or disturbing content. Discretion advised. Protests are underway in New York City, N.Y., after a grand jury failed to bring charges against Louisville police in Kentucky for the killing of Breonna Taylor during a drug raid gone wrong, with prosecutors saying the two officers that fired their weapons that hit the Black woman were justified in using force to protect themselves. The only charges brought by the grand jury were three counts of wanton endangerment against fired Officer Brett Hankison for shooting into Taylor’s neighbours’ homes during the raid on the night of March 13. The FBI is still investigating potential violations of federal law in the case. Along with the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota, Taylor’s case became a major touchstone for the nationwide protests that have gripped the U.S. since May — drawing attention to entrenched racism and demands for police reform.
