What’s Next For Breonna Taylor’s Family, And The Movement That Followed Her Death

The Kentucky attorney general said this week that police were “justified” in the shooting that killed Breonna Taylor during a botched narcotics raid, and no charges were brought against any officers in her death. The only charges brought were against one officer whose shots went into another apartment. That announcement touched off more protests in Louisville and around the country.

Jamiles Lartey of The Marshall Project explains the legal rationale behind the decision. Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear explains why he supports the release of grand jury testimony in the case. And Ibram X. Kendi of Boston University’s Center for Antiracist Research discusses where the movement for racial justice goes from here.
