On Wednesday in Frankfurt, Ky., Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced that a grand jury didn’t charge two of three police officers in Louisville in the killing of Breonna Taylor last March.
One officer, Brett Hankison, was charged of three counts of wanton endangerment, because one of Taylor’s neighbors’ homes was affected by gunfire. Ultimately, the Commonwealth (Kentucky is a Commonwealth like Virginia) didn’t charge anyone for Taylor’s death.
Many of the NBA’s and WNBA’s players on remaining playoff teams have voiced their opinions on social media or on the air. Here are just some of the reactions Wizards and Mystics players posted since yesterday.
