Louisville Metro Department of Corrections officer Turhan Knight was fired over a video mocking Breonna Taylor's death.
On Feb. 24, Breonna's mother, Tamika Palmer, wore a red and black letterman-style jacket that had Taylor’s face embroidered on the front and the phrase "Say Her Name" patched in bold letters on the back.
A Louisville cop will go to jail for two years for excessive force against a protester during racial justice protests in May 2020.
Although Hankison will stand trial for charges related to the incident involving Taylor, no officer has been indicted on charges directly related to her death. Justice for Breonna Taylor continues to feel out of reach.
The upcoming criminal trial for Brett Hankison, a former Louisville police detective involved in Breonna Taylor's killing - but not charged for her killing Breonna Taylor -- will be open to the press, a Kentucky judge ruled Thursday, delivering him a legal setback.
Despite defending the no-knock search warrant that led to the police killing of Breonna Taylor, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is leading a Search Warrant Task Force he said he hoped would make the state "a national model for search warrants."
This Front Page is by no means exhaustive. There is no way to list the names of every Black person killed by police—no way to list every injustice, every instance of inhumanity and hypocrisy. There is no way to lift up all the brilliant, beautiful, bold, Black work that is being done to make freedom dreams a reality. What we have curated here is a small window into what resistance, revolution, and reimaging has looked like across this nation and the globe.
