Protest marks Breonna Taylor's death anniversary

Hundreds of demonstrators marched in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday, one year after Breonna Taylor was shot and killed by the police.

Her death, along with the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota last year, sparked global protests against police brutality and racism.

Protesters marched through downtown holding signs of Taylor's face, chanting "Black lives matter" and "no justice no peace."

Taylor, a Black 26-year-old emergency medical technician and aspiring nurse, was shot six times during a botched police raid of her Louisville home.

A grand jury in September recommended no homicide charges against the three white officers in the case.

One, Brett Hankison, was charged with wanton endangerment, but not murder.

During Saturday's rally in Louisville, speakers called for justice for Taylor and reforms to the criminal justice system.

"Police kicked in the door of Breonna Taylor's home and shot her in cold blood and then had the nerve to say it was justified in doing so. Well, according to the United States Constitution Fourth Amendment, citizens have a right to be safe and protected in their person and proper and home against unreasonable searches and seizures."

Louisville Mayor Greg Fisher said the city has made significant reforms, but that there was still "a good deal of work ahead."
