NBA superstar LeBron James wore a fake Donald Trump MAGA hat to the post-game interview on August 18th that read “Make America arrest the cops that killed Breonna Taylor” and reminded everyone that there still has been “no justice” for Breonna Taylor.
Taylor was killed on March 13, 2020, in Louisville, Kentucky, and the cops still have not been arrested.
For those who don’t know, this is what happened to Breonna Taylor courtesy of the New York Times.
Shortly after midnight on March 13, Louisville police officers executing a search warrant used a battering ram to enter the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency room technician.
Ms. Taylor and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, had been in bed, but got up when they heard a loud banging at the door. After a brief exchange, Mr. Walker fired his gun. The police also fired several shots, striking Ms. Taylor.
Mr. Walker told investigators that Ms. Taylor coughed and struggled to breathe for at least five minutes after she was shot, according to The Louisville Courier Journal. She received no medical attention for more than 20 minutes after she was struck, The Courier Journal reported, citing dispatch logs.
The Jefferson County coroner told The Courier Journal that Ms. Taylor most likely died less than a minute after she was shot and could not have been saved.
