Officer Brent Hankinson, who was fired from the Louisville Police Department following Breonna Taylor’s fatal shooting in March, has been charged with three counts of wanton endangerment, but some activists say that's not enough.
“We must not lose focus on what the real job is, and with that being said, it’s time to move forward with the criminal charges, because she deserves that and much more,” Breonna Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer, said.
“Breonna Taylor is not a ‘co-defendant’ in a criminal case,” Sam Aguiar, Breonna Taylor's attorney, wrote on Facebook. “She’s dead. Way to try and attack a woman when she’s not even here to defend herself.”
