Still Seeking Justice: Breonna Taylor’s Mother Meets With Department Of Justice Asking

For Federal Charges Against Trigger-Happy Cops

It has been two years and the story and the fight for justice for Breonna Taylor is still ongoing. Believe it or not,  even with some officers being fired and another getting acquitted for his criminal charges, no one has been held legally responsible in the fatal police shooting of Breonna.
So Breonna’s mother is not done fighting to have justice served for her daughter. She has taken the fight to the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division to have Federal Charges filed against the officers involved in the shooting.

At a press conference after the meeting, Breonna’s mother said  “I’m here at the Department of Justice asking them to do the right thing, this is bigger than Breonna. If no one addresses this issue, they’ll keep kicking in our doors and murdering us.”
