It’s been a year, and there’s still no justice for Breonna Taylor

Saturday marked the one-year anniversary of Breonna Taylor’s death at the hands of Louisville police. It was a senseless death—one that showed Black Lives simply don’t matter.

The cops allegedly lied to get a no-knock warrant to bust into her apartment that night, even though she was a medical worker with no criminal record. But because a former boyfriend, who was already in custody, was a convicted drug dealer, Breonna was assumed to be guilty.

Calls to 9-1-1 indicate that the cops never announced themselves. So, when they broke down the door, Breonna’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, a licensed gun owner with no criminal record, had no idea who was breaking in. He fired a single shot.

Police fired nearly two dozen, killing Breonna. Then Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron manipulated the grand jury process and no police officer was ever charged with killing Breonna Taylor.

Now, one year later, as we watch jury selection in the trial of the officer who killed George Floyd, and watch the aftermath of an armed insurrection where Pro-Trump rioters killed a cop and cost four others their lives, we now face another insult.

Senator Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, says he wasn’t afraid when that largely white mob burst into the capitol on January 6th looking to kill Mike Pence and others. No, Johnson, would only have been afraid if it was Black Lives Matter or Antifa, because in Johnson’s view, Black people are the ones to be feared.

This is what we’re up against. The attitude that Black people are props in a racist world where we are always in the wrong. Well, no more. We will stand against it. We will fight against it. And we won’t ever stop until there’s justice.
