Virginia Leaders React to Grand Jury Decision in Breonna Taylor Case

Sen. Tim Kaine: ""Breonna Taylor was wrongly killed by police and there is no justice or accountability"


See below for reactions by Virginia leaders to this latest injustice in our country.

Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, but a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday.

Former Detective Brett Hankison was indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree, an offense that ranks at the lowest level of a felony crime in Kentucky and carries a maximum sentence of up to five years in prison.
