The fact that Breonna Taylor lived for five to six minutes after being shot last March in Louisville, KY by police officers and having received no medical attention, should be strongly addressed by that city’s governmental officials, UltraViolet, a women’s rights organization, said Friday.
“The Louisville Metropolitan Police Department broke into Breonna Taylor’s home and murdered her in her bed as she slept,” Shaunna Thomas, co-founder and executive director of UltraViolet said in a statement.
“The fact that they had a chance to provide emergency medical care to Taylor, at the very least, and made no effort to do so, speaks for itself. The officers involved in the murder of Breonna Taylor must be fired, have their pensions revoked and be arrested for their crimes. Enough. It’s past time for Mayor Greg Fischer and Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron to act.”
Ultra Violet, based in the United Kingdom, is a community group that fights sexism and expands women’s rights from politics and government to media and pop culture.
