"As significant as today is, it is only the beginning of getting full justice for Breonna," said Palmer, her voice at times shaking with emotion. "It's time to move forward with the criminal charges because she deserves that and much more."
Taylor's death, alongside that of George Floyd, a Black man killed in May by a white Minneapolis police officer who knelt on his neck, gave rise to one of the largest protest movements in U.S. history, with daily demonstrations in cities ever since.
TAMIKA PALMER: Let me just slide this down. As significant as today is, it's only the beginning of getting full justice for Breonna. We must not lose focus on what the real drive is. And with that being said, it's time to move forward with the criminal charges because she deserves that and much more. Her beautiful spirit and personality is working through all of us on the ground, so please continue to say her name, Breonna Taylor.
ALL: Breonna Taylor.
- Breonna Taylor.
