Tomorrow, June 5th would have been Breonnas 27th birthday.
Instead of a joyous occasion celebrating her life.
We are forced to mourn her passing.
Another young #BlackWoman taken from the world by those who were trusted to protect & serve.
Her name is now engraved on the memorial list of fallen #BlackQueens killed by law enforcement. Names that we as survivors have a duty to lift up forever more;

In America, we are supposed to have guaranteed civil rights and liberties to the individual, like freedom of speech, freedom of protest, freedom from unreasonable search & seizure, freedom to bear arms..
A “No Knock” warrant is the tool, Breonnas killers falsely obtained, in order to burst into the home of Breonna Taylor & her boyfriend Kenneth Walker Jr in the middle of the night. Kenneth stood his ground and fired a shot at the intruders, who then opened fire in return killing Breonna while she laid sleeping in her bed. Kenneth was arrested immediately. and later released after public pressure began to rise.
Later it was revealed this “No Knock” warrant was obtained because the investigating officers lied to a judge.They falsified evidence stated a suspect they had been tracking was receiving mail at Breonnas home. A story we now know to be 100% false.
