Christian Leaders Are Speaking Up About the Breonna Taylor Case

On Wednesday, a grand jury in Louisville announced that none of the officers involved in the no-knock raid that ended with Breonna Taylor’s death would be directly charged. One officer, former detective Brett Hankison, will be charged with “first-degree wanton endangerment” for firing into Taylor’s neighboring walls.

The ruling was not, perhaps, a great shock to a nation that has grown accustomed to unarmed, innocent Black men and women being killed with impunity by police. But it was a grievous disappointment to Americans who’d hoped for justice for the 26-year-old EMT who was reportedly asleep in her home when the shooting started.

Across the country, Christian leaders spoke up to mourn the ruling and call on others to cry for justice.
