Dismay over Breonna Taylor spills into America's streets

  Dismay over Breonna Taylor spills into America's streets LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Anger, frustration and sadness over the decision not to charge Kentucky police officers for Breonna Taylor’s death poured into America’s streets as protesters lashed out at a criminal justice system they say is stacked against Black people. Activists, celebrities and everyday Americans have been calling for charges since Taylor, an emergency medical worker, was shot multiple times by white officers who entered her home during a narcotics investigation in March.

Riots broke out in Louisville on Wednesday after the state attorney general announced that no criminal charges would be filed against two of the police officers involved in the killing of African-American woman Breonna Taylor in March.

CNN has been unable to independently verify the contents of the email.

Schroeder said Friday that the department was aware of Hallahan's correspondence.

"They were her personal opinions and do not represent the views of this department," he said.

"Major Hallahan has accepted responsibility for her emails, and is retiring from the department effective October 1."

Department spokesman Dwight Mitchell declined to comment on whether Hallahan's upcoming retirement was related to her removal from command.

Hallahan did not immediately respond to questions regarding the email, her loss of command, nor her retirement.

Lonita Baker, an attorney for Breonna Taylor's family, responded angrily to Hallahan's comments Friday.

"I want LMPD majors who say that we're the ones out here washing cars or checking you out at Walmart — no we're not." Baker said during a press conference at Louisville's Jefferson Square Park. "We're lawyers. We're businesspeople. We're city employees just like you."
