CNN reports: “Brett Hankison, the former Louisville police officer who fatally shot Breonna Taylor, has been indicted by a grand jury on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree.

Two other officers involved in the March shooting — Sgt. John Mattingly and Det. Myles Cosgrove — were not charged following months of demonstrations calling for the arrests of all the officers.”
 
Six months after her death, and after numerous protests, Breonna Taylor and her family haven’t seen justice.  The outcome was anticipated as a State of Emergency was declared in Louisville, and a curfiew put in place for 72 hours in the anticipation of new protests.
