Acknowledging that there are people who feel the announcement by the Kentucky attorney general’s office “fall short of achieving justice,” Mayor Greg Fischer outlined other ongoing investigations into Breonna Taylor’s death.
The FBI is still conducting its investigation that the Department of Justice will review to determine if any federal laws, including civil rights violations, were violated.
The Louisville Metro Police Department is also conducting a professional standards investigation to determine if “policies and procedures were violated by officers involved in the case,” Fischer said.
It’s clear that policies and procedures in Louisville need to change “because Breonna Taylor still should be alive,” the mayor added.
Justice for Taylor means “a commitment to eliminating systemic and structural racism in our city, in our country,” Fischer said.
He appealed to the people of Louisville to “turn to each other, not on each other” during what he called “this moment of opportunity.”
