A police shooting that led to the death of Nika Holbert, a Black woman, has sparked a larger debate about best practices by law enforcement and who was in the wrong first in the fateful encounter in Nashville.
Recently released court documents showed a group of Louisiana State Troopers joked about beating a Black man in a group text, pointing to a larger pattern of police brutality among officers in the northeast part of the state.
Across the United States demonstrators held rallies to honor the life and legacy of Breonna Taylor, a Black 26-year-old Louisville, Kentucky, woman who was killed by police in her home.
Black law students at Georgetown took action after a racist viral video showed two adjunct professors engaged in an exchange that students say confirms their suspicions.
Justice for Breonna doesn’t only mean accountability in the eyes of the law. She deserved the right to create and raise the family she wanted without having to be afraid of police violence. Breonna deserved reproductive justice.
Activists demanded that Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine prosecute the police officers involved in Breonna Taylor's death now that his self-proclaimed conflict of interest that prompted his recusal last year no longer exists.
