Celebrities React to Breonna Taylor Ruling

Celebrities are reacting to the Breonna Taylor ruling today that has caused an uproar for the lack of justice for her murder.

“A grand jury announced that Officer Brett Hankison was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment in connection to the police raid on the night of March 13. Neither the grand jury nor the presiding judge elaborated on the charges,” AP reported. The officer in question was not brought up on murder charges.

A social media campaign has been going on for months to get the officers involved arrested on murder charges.

For those unfamiliar with the case, a summary of the fatal incident, via AP: “Taylor, an emergency medical worker, was shot multiple times by officers who entered her home using a no-knock warrant during a narcotics investigation. The warrant used to search her home was connected to a suspect who did not live there, and no drugs were found inside. The use of no-knock warrants has since been banned by Louisville’s Metro Council…Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, opened fire when police burst in, hitting Mattingly. Walker was charged with attempted murder of a police officer, but prosecutors later dropped the charge. Walker told police he heard knocking but didn’t know who was coming into the home and fired in self-defense.”

Celebrities have been taking to Twitter to react to this ruling today.
