CBS Chicago: Father Pfleger marches to show disatisfaction with Breonna Taylor grand jury decision.

 

[VIDEO] As with George Floyd at the end of May protests - or riots - with regards to the case of Louisville, Kentucky native Breonna Taylor goes nationwide. Father Pfleger leads a march from his St. Sabina parish to show dissatisfaction with this decision.

If you didn't know it was announced yesterday by the Attorney General of Kentucky that there would be no charges against three officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor. One officer however will be a charge with wanton endangerment of Ms. Taylor's neighbors as he reportedly fired a shot at another apartment nearby.

That shot was in response to a shot fired by her boyfriend Kenneth Walker when police came to break down the door. There was a no-knock warrant however some reports were emerging that police had announced their presence and had knocked. Either way tragically Breonna Taylor was killed in a gunfight. Regardless none of the three officers involved will be charged in Ms. Taylor's death.

Unfortunately I think a lot of people have made up their minds on this particular issue. There were protests in Chicago and thankfully as this report from our local CBS affiliate indicated they were largely peaceful aside from wanton vandalism of a monument in Logan Square where most of the protests in Chicago were taking place. Louisville, Kentucky has some unrest but has calmed down after quick action by authorities there.

EDIT 9:47 AM This is more about the protest near St. Sabina. Pflegers group yesterday disrupted traffic at the intersection of 79th & Racine. Again via CBS Chicago [VIDEO]

  2. Marches and protests by us Blacks is old school. Those strategies just don't work anymore, because today's issue isn't integrating whatever. Nobody cares if we march. ⊙.☉

    I do have other suggestions, ideas. (●__●)

  3. Compared to George Floyd and Jacob Blake, Breonna Taylor barely received protests. ☹️

  4. We really should be patrolling our Black communities ourselves, with our many fine Black organizations, which we really don't see, hear and read much about. 🤔(☉。☉)!

    1. Well, I like this idea. New York City has community organizations that patrols their own communities. They work with the police department.

  5. I support disbandment of the CPD, at least in our areas. 😁

    1. Well I think Black areas can least afford it. Just my opinion. ;)
