Breonna Taylor Protests Ignite Across The Country, Including Denver
Protests erupt nationwide after no charges were handed down in the death of Breonna Taylor!
Some, including Breonna Taylor’s mother, are saddened and disappointed by the decision NOT to prosecute any of the officers for Taylor’s death!
Taylor’s mother only learned about the results of the grand jury indictment just two minutes before Attorney General Daniel Cameron made his announcement! It was expected the family would have at least gotten a heads-up on the decision, their family attorney told CNN.
Tonight, I’m thinking of Breonna Taylor’s family who is still grieving the loss of a daughter and sister.
We must never stop speaking Breonna’s name as we work to reform our justice system, including overhauling no-knock warrants.

Protests in Louisville have resulted in two police officers being shot! Even in Denver, protestors took to the streets and one driver was arrested after running his car through a crowd of people!
Even amidst the profound grief & anger today's decision generated, violence is never & can never be the answer. Those who engage in it must be held accountable. Jill & I are keeping the officers shot tonight in Louisville in our prayers. We wish them both a swift & full recovery.

Professional athletes have even expressed their disappointment over the outcome! Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James said on Twitter, “I’ve been lost for words today!”
