5 Ways You Can Demand Justice for Breonna Taylor in Under 5 Minutes

*On the night of March 13th, the Louisville Metro Police executed a warrant, looking for drugs they never found, reportedly trafficked by a person who did not live with Breonna or in her complex-and whom they already had in custody.  It's been nearly 5 months since Breonna was shot and killed in her home. The police sprayed her home with 20 rounds, shooting Breonna 8 times and killing her in her bed. Breonna Taylor was an award-winning EMT and first responder in Louisville, KY, who loved helping her patients and her community. "She was an essential worker. She had to go to work," her mother, Tamika Palmer said of her dedication to standing on the frontlines of this pandemic. "She didn't have a problem with that."
