People in Louisville and across the country are unleashing their anger after a Kentucky grand jury on Wednesday indicted one officer for allegedly endangering the neighbors of Breonna Taylor during the police shooting that killed her. Officer Brett Hankison, who has been fired, was indicted on three.

His face has become almost as iconic as that of Georges Floyd in the protests against police violence in the United States. On March 13, this 26-year-old African-American nurse fell under police gunfire while watching television in her living room with her boyfriend. His death shocks part of America and provokes four months of particularly tense protests in Louisville .

" Scandalous and insulting "

But in its decision made public on September 23, Kentucky justice considers that the three white police officers made a justified use of force, in self-defense. Police came in with a search warrant allowing him to enter without knocking. But when they arrive on the scene, the officers miss the wrong apartment. When they break into Brenna Taylor's home, the victim's companion thinks he's dealing with burglars. The man opens fire with a gun he legally owned, injuring an officer in the leg. Immediate response from the police; 32 bullets are fired including five fatal for Breonna Taylor.

Four months later, only one of the police officers is finally charged and only for endangering the life of others, not that of Breonna Taylor but that of her neighbors who received 10 stray bullets in their home. No charges are brought against the other two policemen. A move "scandalous and insulting," according to the Taylor family lawyer immediately greeted by further protests in Louisville.
