Kentucky Judge Dismisses All Charges Against Breonna Taylor’s Boyfriend over Fatal No-Knock Raid

HeadlineMar 09, 2021

In Kentucky, a judge has permanently dismissed all charges against Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend Kenneth Walker for allegedly shooting and wounding a police officer serving a no-knock warrant in Taylor’s home last March. Walker has said the officers never identified themselves before entering the home, and never attempted to save Taylor as she lay dying after she was struck by a hail of police gunfire. Last September, a grand jury failed to charge any of the three white Louisville police officers involved in the killing of Breonna Taylor with her death.
