Breonna Taylor

Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), resided in Louisville, Kentucky. On March 13, 2020, three undercover police officers carried out a search warrant without prior announcement on her flat. This action was part of their investigation into two men who were suspected of selling illegal drugs, a considerable distance away from Breonna’s residence.

In the early hours of the morning, law enforcement forcefully entered Breonna’s residence without prior notice, while she and her boyfriend Kenneth Walker were asleep. Kenneth, who has a valid handgun license, engaged in a shootout with the officers, who discharged more than 20 rounds. Breonna sustained eight gunshot wounds and was declared deceased at the location. Kenneth sustained an injury.

There were no narcotics discovered within Breonna’s residence. The officers conducted a raid on an incorrect residence and were also trying to execute a warrant on individuals who were already under police custody. The police officers submitted an evidently fabricated event report which claimed that Breonna did not sustain any injuries and that no unauthorized entry had taken place. The police department attributed the near-total absence of content in the four-page report to technical faults.

The death of Breonna Taylor has sparked widespread rallies across the country, with demonstrators consistently demanding that her name be acknowledged. An officer was terminated on June 23, 2020, while the police chief retired on May 21, 2020. The utilization of “no knock” warrants has been temporarily halted by Louisville, and on June 10th, 2020, Breonna’s Law was officially ratified in Louisville. According to the legislation, it is mandatory for all law enforcement officials executing warrants to wear body cameras and activate them five minutes prior to and following the execution of the warrant. On May 15, 2020, Breonna’s family initiated a legal action for wrongful death.
