    Kentucky’s attorney general agrees to release grand jury tapes in Breonna Taylor case

    Kentucky’s attorney general acknowledged that he never recommended homicide charges against any of the police officers conducting the drug raid that led to Breonna Taylor’s death, and said he didn’t object to a judge’s order to publicly release the grand jury’s deliberations. Amid outrage over the jury’s decision last week to not charge any of the officers for Taylor’s fatal shooting, Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Monday that he didn’t object to the public release of the proceedings or to any members of the panel speaking publicly about their experience. “We have no concerns with grand jurors sharing their thoughts ...

    A small group of runners gathered at Portland’s Payson Park on Saturday for the birthday of Breonna Taylor, the Black woman whose death at the hands of police in Louisville, Kentucky, inspired social-justice activists around the country.
