Just because the protests haven’t been getting as much mainstream coverage doesn’t mean they’re disappearing. I’m still going to talk about the Breonna Taylor situation and others or at least continuing the discussion on race relations on here and even my other blogs.
I do apologize if this is older news for anyone knee deep in what’s going on in Louisville, KY, but I didn’t know this until recently. It’s infuriating enough that the cops still aren’t even charged for the murder of Breonna Taylor, but apparently Brett Hankison has been accused of sexually assaulting various women. This is just disgusting on so many levels. As one can tell by the title, where’s #MeToo when it comes to this situation? I know he’s not a celebrity, but people have been taken down and canceled even though they were innocent (see: Nate Parker). This really shows how you have certain women out there who are just activists of convenience instead of getting real justice. Those same people don’t even care that a woman was murdered in her own house, so I hate this double standard when it comes to who is treated better or who gets demonized. This should give even more reason to charge him now, but the legal system is still twiddling their thumbs on the matter and giving the Louisville protestors even more reason to be on the streets.
I can only hope that they finally charge and convict everyone who killed Breonna Taylor as well as getting Brett Hankison for his sexual assault crimes.
