    I just listened to the 911 call. That was difficult. I shouldn't have.

    All this is just too much.

    And also where were the police while he was on the 912 call. You don't hear them in the background at all.

    I've been pleasantly surprised at the signs and people mentioning Breonna Taylor at the protests and rallies. At least from the footage I've seen on Twitter.

    I'm getting annoyed that people think this is just because of George Floyd; I think his death was the straw that broke the camels back.

    Breonna deserves the same recognition, her death should not be in vain.

    I'm not a very outwardly emotional person but I get super emotional watching Black people cry. Our pain is visceral, like these tears come from somewhere deep.

    This hurts, I'm hurt. I don't know what to do but this all hurts too much.

    Why aren't they being arrested?

    The ladies in a FB group that I joined that specifically tracks what is going on with BT's case say that protests for her are happening daily and they are applying continuous pressure.

    I'm retweeting posts about Breonna, daily. Kamala Harris also tweeted about her case today.

    I've been avoiding this thread until today. Just the thought of what happened is too painful for me to examine.

    ^^^^

    A blank incident report because they knew anything they wrote down would not make any sense once scrutinized .

    I hope she gets justice. So many pieces of the puzzle has to be looked at.

    Louisville city council unanimously pass 'Breonna's Law' to ban no-knock warrants
    "This is one of many critical steps on police reform that we’ve taken to create a more peaceful, just, compassionate and equitable community," the Louisville mayor said.

    Louisville council to vote on police reform bill honoring Breonna Taylor
    June 11, 202003:18
    “Breonna’s Law,” named after the former EMT who died in a police raid at her apartment.

    The unanimously passed ordinance, which still needs to be approved by the mayor, bans any search warrant that does not require police to announce themselves and their purpose at the premises. It requires any Louisville Metro Police Department or Metro law enforcement to knock and wait a minimum of 15 seconds for a response.


    Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer vowed to pass the ban as “soon as it hits my desk.”

    “This is one of many critical steps on police reform that we’ve taken to create a more peaceful, just, compassionate and equitable community,” Fischer said on Twitter Thursday.

    Tamika Palmer, Taylor's mother, praised the passage by the city council. She spoke to the press after the vote along with the family's attorney, Benjamin Crump.

    "I'm just going to say that Breonna, that's all she wanted to do was save lives," Palmer said. "So with this law, she'll get to continue to do that."

    Taylor, who was a licensed emergency medical technician, was fatally shot by police when plainclothes officers arrived after midnight on March 13 to serve a no-knock warrant in a drug case.

    At a March 13 news conference, police Lt. Ted Eidem said officers had knocked on the door several times and "announced their presence as police who were there with a search warrant." After forcing their way in, they “were immediately met by gunfire,” Eidem said.

    My daughter just told me that an announcement is supposed to be made about charges against the officers who murdered Breonna today.

    ETA: Dont know if I should be glad this didn’t happen as I was told. Allegedly people were being let off work early for safety reasons from the response to a decision about charging the officers.

    What heck is taking so long?? They bet not come back with anything but arrests and charges! Its almost 100 days since Breonna was murdered. This process is excruciatingly slow for me. I can't imagine what her people are going through.

    Sigh....a coon. So this explains why Brianna's killers are still free.

    Can this go above him? Who else can make the decision to arrest her killers?
