Her Story

Breonna Taylor would’ve been 27 years old today, June 5th. But her life was taken on March 13th, 2020 after midnight in Louisville, Kentucky. The Louisville police burst into her apartment with a battering ram on a so called “No Knock” warrant for a drug bust. Come to find out, they happened to be in the wrong neighborhood of the two individuals who were the source of the drug investigation. The warrant was issued due to suspected packages being received from her residence. Where is the evidence of that? We do not know… And the suspect they were searching for had been apprehended earlier that day. Sickening. 

Let’s get this straight…anybody banging on your door at 12am in the morning without announcing themselves will make you do whatever you need to do in order to protect yourself and your family. 

As police rammed into the house of this award winning EMT, her boyfriend Kenneth Walker, fired a shot at intruders. Yes, intruders because they still did not know that these were the police. This shot wounded 1 officer. This resulted in police firing back 22 shots, 8 of which hit and killed Taylor.  Prosecutors later charger Kenneth Walker with attempted murder of an officer…subsequent to his action of self defense. Charges were later dropped. We still need arrests of the officers involved, specifically John Mattingly, Brett Hankison, Myles Cosgrove, and any other officer involved even the ones who helped cover up her death.

Subject: We Demand Justice for Breonna Taylor

Body: Hello, <br> <br>My name is [NAME] and I am a resident of [CITY/STATE]. I am emailing today to demand accountability in the unjust murder of Breonna Taylor. I demand that Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison and Myles Cosgrove each be arrested and charged for 2nd degree murder for the wrongful death of Breonna Taylor.  <br> <br>June 5th would have been Breonna’s 27th birthday but she is unable to celebrate  because on March 13th your police recklessly executed a raid using a “no knock” warrant on the wrong home. <br> <br>Despite your almost 3 months of inaction, Breonna’s life matters and I want justice for her.  <br> <br>Sincerely, <br>[NAME]
