Bloomberg QuickTake: Now published this video item, entitled “LIVE: Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear Responds to Breonna Taylor Grand Jury Report” – below is their description.
(Sept. 23) Watch live as Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear and other state leaders hold a news conference in Frankfort to respond to the grand jury’s report on the shooting death of Breonna Taylor. A Kentucky grand jury brought no charges against Louisville police for the killing of Breonna Taylor during a drug raid gone wrong, with prosecutors saying Wednesday two officers who fired their weapons at the Black woman were justified in using force to protect themselves. The grand jury instead charged fired Officer Brett Hankison with three counts of wanton endangerment for firing into Taylor’s neighbors’ 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 nation since May — drawing attention to entrenched racism and demanding police reform. Taylor’s image has been painted on streets, emblazoned on protest signs and silk-screened on T-shirts worn by celebrities. The charges drew immediate sadness, frustration and anger that the grand jury did not go further. The wanton endangerment charges each carry a sentence of up to five years. Protesters began marching through the streets of Louisville, where Taylor was killed, after the announcement, shouting “No justice, no peace.” Some sat quietly and cried.Bloomberg QuickTake: Now YouTube Channel
