Louisville to pay Breonna Taylor’s family $12 million for her fatal shooting

The mayor of Louisville, Greg Fischer, said the city will pay $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor and reform the police force as part of a lawsuit settlement months after police shot dead Taylor. However, Fischer said the civil settlement has nothing do with the criminal investigation that is currently underway in the case. Taylor’s slaying triggered months of protests in Louisville.

What do "no-knock warrants" have to do with Breonna Taylor's death? She's dead because her boyfriend fired a shot through the door at the police, striking one. Police returned fire through the door, which seems like the only option they had other than wait for more bullets to hit them. Breonna's name was on the warrant because she was involved in the drug trade. She didn't deserve to die, but she wasn't an innocent bystander.

If you're a drug dealer and you shoot at the police, bad things happen.

So they'd rather pay her family instead of giving them justice and arresting the murderous cops responsible 🤔

They paid so much because an insider released info that a group of these cops were part of a group within the department called "the executioner's" and part of the settlement was to keep this quiet.

I urge any right wing cultist to take a look at some of the lawsuits police departments have paid it's in the hundreds and hundreds of millions. All for "mistakes"🙄

Seems very likely that Viva Frei & Robert Barnes will discuss this case whenever their next livestream takes place. $12 million seems very high for a wrongful death. High enough that the city might appeal it. Not really sure of all the legal details involved.

Why bother paying her family. The Trump sheep have already devalued her and called her a drug mule criminal with zero facts . Trump 2020, Covid-19 is fake,CDC lies, the Covid-19 death toll is a lie, the economy is fine. Kung Flu 2020 Making America Great Again. SMH
