Leaked Documents Reveal New Details In Breonna Taylor Case

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The U.S. Justice Department has found Louisville police have engaged in a pattern of violating constitutional rights following an investigation prompted by the fatal police shooting of Breonna Taylor. The announcement was made Wednesday by Attorney General Merrick Garland. A Justice Department report found the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government and Louisville Metro Police Department “engage in a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives people of their rights under the Constitution and federal law.” Taylor was fatally shot as officers serving a warrant at her home opened fire in March 2020. The shooting sparked protests in Louisville and across the country.
