You wouldn’t know it from the national media coverage, but protests over the murder of Breonna Taylor have continued for almost three months in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, the Courier Journal reports:
An array of groups has marched, making it increasingly difficult for the uninterested to ignore. There have been marches for mothers, for ministers, for football coaches and farmers. The demonstrations are only evolving and gaining more ubiquitous steam as they force the issue.
“You got people from all walks of the community, from affluent neighborhoods to houseless, who are all singing that same message,” said Shameka Parrish-Wright, co-chair of the Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression.
“We all can’t be wrong.”
Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency room technician, was shot to death by Louisville police officers after they used a battering ram to enter the apartment where she and her boyfriend were in bed on March 13, five months ago last week. None of the three officers involved in Taylor’s killing have been charged, and the Louisville Metro Police Department has spent almost $100,000 on security for them.
