Breonna Taylor

An homage to Breanna, I didn’t know her but she had a beautiful smile, she worked at a job she loved as an EMT, left this life too young. I know when I was 26, my life was only beginning.

Her mother, Tamika Palmer, told The Louisville Courier Journal that Taylor was a young woman who adored her family above all else and who had made plans to succeed.

Officers from the Lousiville Metro Police Department’s Criminal Interdiction Division used a battering ram to break down the door and rushed into the house on Springfield Drive at 1 a.m., waking Taylor and her boyfriend, Walker. Walker shot at the officers, wounding one, and the three who entered fired some 22 shots back, according to Eggert, Walker’s defense attorney; Taylor was shot eight times and died.

Eggert told local news station WDBR that Walker was acting in self-defense and said Taylor’s death was the result of “police misconduct.”

Her birthday would have been last Friday on June 5.

  1. I sometimes wish my own art practice could be as responsive to the times we live in . Being Muslim I have tried but I tend to abstraction & symbol which seems to help complete misunderstanding along .
    Looking at her face I would have liked to meet her – she must have been a good EMT .
