Breonna Taylor’s Story To Be Told In Upcoming FX Docu-Series + Breonna’s Family Says Medical Aid Wasn’t Offered After She Was Shot 8 Times

​ ​ ​ ​

Breonna Taylor’s murder by police will be featured in an upcoming docu-series for FX. Meanwhile, Breonna’s family is still fighting for justice! Everything inside…

Breonna Taylor’s family – along with social media – is STILL demanding justice in her death.

On March 13th, the 26-year-old EMT (who was working at two hospitals to take care of COVID-19 patients) was killed by police officers while she slept in her home in Louisville, Kentucky in the wee hours of the morning.

Three officers raided her home to catch a suspect who was ALREADY in custody. Police shot up the WRONG address, killing Breonna after she was hit with 8 bullets. The Kentucky cops “blindly fired” off more than 25 shots in the apartment she shared with her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker.

When police entered their apartment unannounced, her boyfriend called 911 and then fired shots at the officers, thinking he was defending himself from someone who was breaking into their home.

Now, Breonna’s story will be told in an upcoming FX docu-series, which will be directed by award-winning director/producer Yoruba Richen (The New Black) and Times reporter/four-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Rukmini Callimachi. The new series is titled “The New York Times Presents,” and one episode will reportedly explore Breonna's life and investigate the circumstances of her death.

The Hollywood Reporter reports:

FX's docuseries The Weekly, produced by The New York Times, is going away — but the partnership between the two companies will continue.

Like The Weekly, each episode of The New York Times Presents will cover a single subject, but installments will run an hour rather than a half-hour. The team from The Weekly, including Red Arrow Studios' Left/Right, is producing the new show as well.

”The New York Times Presents” is set to debut July 10th on FX, which will air monthly and premiere simultaneously on FX and Hulu on Friday nights. The first episode will highlight doctors and nurses in New York City at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s unclear which episode will feature Breonna’s story.

The three officers responsible for her death - Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove — were all placed on administrative reassignment. None of them have been criminally charged and her family along with social media users have been DEMANDING the officers be brought up on charges. Brett Hankison was fired from the department but is currently appealing his firing.

Breonna's boyfriend Kenneth Walker - who worked at the Post Office - is a licensed gun owner and only fired his weapon because he thought he and his girlfriend were in imminent danger. The police never announced themselves, so he thought someone came in to harm them. Following the shooting, Kenneth was arrested and charged with attempted murder for shooting one of the officers, but the charges against him were dropped. NO drugs were found in the home and her family filed a lawsuit against the Louisville Metro Police Department after they took the life of their innocent family member.

Breonna’s family has been fighting since her life was taken. They’re now alleging that medical aid was NOT offered to Breonna after she was fatally shot EIGHT times in a new 31-page legal filing, according to The New York Times.

They believe Breonna suffered in agony for six whole minutes after she was shot during the botched raid.

“In the six minutes that elapsed from the time Breonna was shot, to the time she died, we have no evidence suggesting that any officer made entry in an attempt to check and assist her,” Sam Aguiar, the family’s lawyer, said in an interview. “She suffered.”

The coroner is singing a different tune. Dr. Barbara Weakley-Jones believes doctors wouldn’t have been able to save her since she supposedly died in “less than a minute” after being shot eight times.

“Even if it had happened outside of an ER we couldn’t have saved her,” Dr. Barbara Weakley-Jones said.

Breonna’s family alleged Mayor Greg Fischer wanted the land Breonna lived on for redevelopment and officers were tasked with clearing out the area of alleged drug dealers to make way for a new development with federal funding.

“People needed to be removed and homes needed to be vacated so that a high-dollar, legacy-creating real estate development could move forward,” Taylor’s family said.

ABC News reports:

Louisville police have declined to comment on the investigation, and an internal probe of the officer's actions has been turned over to the Kentucky attorney general for review. The FBI is also investigating potential civil rights violations by the police.

We're praying Breonna's family and friends actually receive justice following this tragic death. She didn't have to die, nor did she deserve to. The people who took her life should be held accountable!
