A grand jury indicted one of the three police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor with “wanton endangerment” yesterday. The charges relate to the endangerment of Taylor’s neighbors, and the jury found “no evidence to support a criminal violation of state law” in relation to Taylor’s death. The decision prompted thousands of protesters to gather in cities around the US last night, including in Taylor’s home-city of Louisville (where two police officers were shot and wounded last night).
More context: Taylor’s death in March was one of several incidents that sparked ongoing protests over police brutality and racial inequality.
