Black Lives Matter Cleveland has taken to social media to react to the grand jury’s choice to indite only one Louisville, Kentucky Police Officer, but not for the death of Breonna Taylor.
Former officer Brett Hankison was given “three counts of first degree wonton endangerment.” That was the only indictment announced.
