Now we wait. But the word from the family is important. PS: The charge is not related to the shooting of Taylor, but firing of a gun that struck another apartment.
Ben Crump, attorney for the family of Breonna Taylor, said of the grand jury’s decision: This is “not fully what we wanted” but it “brings us closer to justice” https://t.co/lZs2gDVII5 pic.twitter.com/blf0J7iBSo

Good comments from Radley Balko, the Washington Post writer whose work on no-knock military-style drug raids in Little Rock contributed to a change of policy in the Little Rock Police Department. He’s right. End these types of drug raids.
A murder charge was always going to be a stretch. Even for Hankison, if they’re unable to prove it was his bullet that killed Breonna Taylor.
Unsatisfying as this feels, I don’t think more serious charges would have stuck.
That said …
