The grand jury's decision to not charge the officers
who killed Breonna Taylor was heartbreaking in its familiarity. From Eric Garner
to Michael Brown
to Sandra Bland
and now Breonna Taylor, the murder of Black people by law enforcement in this country often seems not to be considered a crime. The grand jury in Kentucky played into this painful feedback loop, charging one officer out of three for wanton endangerment
, but not for taking Breonna's life.
