Louisville Police murdered Breonna Taylor on March 13, 2020.  Since her tragic death she has been a martyr that has sparked activism from all over the World in a movement called SAY HER NAME. She was sleeping peaceful in her apartment the night of March 13, 2020 when police wrongfully conducted a no-knock warrant firing gunshots into her apartment, which hit Breonna Taylor in the chest.

Just recently the family was issued a 12 Million-Dollar settlement for her wrongful death, but the police, who never reported the incident, were not charged for her murder.  However, since their death Kentucky has banned no-knock warrants. But celebrities, social media influencers, and activist feel as if this is not enough, they have all posted “The Police must be held accountable as well. Arrest The Cops Who Murdered Breonna Taylor”.

On Sept. 26, Jennifer Marie, an activist in Hollywood had a protest on Hollywood and Ivar. She organizes with a non-profit organization called “CRE8 The Change”. She has been protesting non-stop since George Floyd’s death about police brutality.  She says, “[Enough Is Enough] My heart behind this was the disturbing injustice that took place with George Floyd then Breonna Taylor… I was strongly encouraged by The Until Freedom Group that moved their headquarters to Louisville to make sure Justice was served in the Breonna Taylor case. We stand united with them. I feel that I am Breonna Taylor”.

What most people fail to realize with this case is that The Cops never reported the entire incident to their department; they submitted blank paperwork, which makes you wonder what really happened?  Jennifer Marie said, “I am floored by how they were attempting to push this case under the rug and deceive the public. I want to believe this is one time they cannot do that.”  After speaking to many protesters it’s the abuse of power that’s really motivating people to take to the streets. 

This case is far from over; Subsequent to Attorney General Daniel Cameron concluding on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 that no charges were going to be placed against the officers for the murder of Breonna Taylor, protest vamped up.  Protest and public outcry was so loud that The Governor of Kentucky, Andy Beshar, and one of the Juror’s are asking to see “All The Evidence” from the incident.  Meaning they want to know the details of the murder that was left out of the police report, and left out of the information given to The Grand Jury. Jennifer Marie responded from this news with joy, “[I] will be protesting until justice is served, and continue to Say Her Name”.
