Athletes React to Breonna Taylor Decision


On Wednesday, a Kentucky grand jury indicted a single police officer with three counts of wanton endangerment in connection with the shooting of Breonna Taylor, who was killed at home by police in March.

Athletes have demanded for months that all three officers involved be arrested. The WNBA dedicated its season to Taylor and has made her name and story a prominent fixture of its 2020 campaign. Players wore jerseys with Taylor’s name on the back, as well as warm-up shirts that said “Say Her Name.”

The outcry on Wednesday in reaction to the grand jury’s decision was both swift and decisive.
