Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced Wednesday afternoon (September 23) that none of the three officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death would be charged with killing her, and only one officer will face charges for shooting into a neighbor’s apartment on the night of the raid.
During a press conference, Cameron said that a grand jury returned three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree against former officer Brett Hankinson in connection with the fatal shooting of Taylor. A $15,000 cash bond has also been attached to the charges.
The other two officers, Sgt. John Mattingly and Det. Myles Cosgrove, were not charged. They remain on the force, while Hankinson was fired in July.
While protesters are hitting the streets in Louisville, celebrities are also speaking out on social media. Trevor Noah, Kerry Washington, Jemele Hill and more are sharing their outrage over the lack of justice for Breonna Taylor. See what they had to say, below:
