LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The city of Louisville will pay $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor and reform police practices as part of a lawsuit settlement months after Taylor’s slaying by police thrust the Black woman’s name to the forefront of a national reckoning on race, Mayor Greg Fischer announced Tuesday.

Taylor’s death sparked months of protests in Louisville and calls nationwide for the officers to be criminally charged. The state’s attorney general, Daniel Cameron, is investigating police actions in the March 13 fatal shooting.

The article goes on to state the following:

The lawsuit, filed in April by Palmer, alleged the police used flawed information when they obtained a “no-knock” warrant to enter the 26-year-old woman’s apartment in March. Taylor and her boyfriend were roused from bed by police, and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, has said he fired once at the officers thinking it was an intruder. Investigators say police were returning fire when they shot Taylor several times. No drugs were found at her home.

  1. This is uncalled for. Not only have reports come out during the investigation that B Taylor & her boyfriend were heavily involved in drug activity, but the taxpayers of Louisville shouldn’t have to foot this bill, neither for liability insurance,nor direct payment. Problem is when people sue any go to entity, they are suing the. Citizens of the United States who had nothing to do with it! It’s very sad that somehow with this social justice platform , these criminals are lifted up, the police are put down, & the Americans are forced to pay the bill. They need to stop these tort lawsuits. All it’s is, is people getting rich for doing nothing at all, & the lawyers get a big chunk of the money!! What keeps us from making lawsuits of this nature illegal (even in Healthcare), and sitting down like adults to assess the problem & find the appropriate resolution? In most cases that won’t be some large sum of money, but resolution to teach our children to do honest days work, don’t do drugs, to be good citizens; while people implicated can be reviewed & the appropriate measures taken! This sue happy behavior that started in the 60s with LBJ, is slowly eating away at our economy & our moral fiber.

  2. maybe the Mayor is African american that what it is democrat it used to used their whole to makes their dreams comes true…using false claim (car accident) to make money too….now using the death of their family to makes money…how about all this black to blacks crime ??
