The fact the police could not even believe that she was an EMT is infuriating.
Crazy how level headed Breonna's sister is, even after what happened to her family. Calling for stricter rules, body cams, transparency. Not violence. Strong girl <3
Her strength is beyond words.
She literally had the rest of her life planned out, would’ve gotten married to her boyfriend, become a nurse as she wanted and had her baby girl but it was all taken away from her because of some stupid cops.

I just imagined to be in her shoes and if that was my sister and I couldn’t believe the amount of pain she must be going through. I pray for you and your mom.
thats messed how they didnt think the jacket was hers. racism needs to stop

Man, she holds herself well. I'm over here crying for her. My heart goes out to her and her family. No one should have to lose their sibling that way. Breonna Taylor deserves justice!!
Body cams would "malfunction" when they do illegal things

Latonia M:
She is a very strong, smart, and articulate young lady
My guess is that cops regularly get cleared of murder charges because police unions have the best lawyers that money can buy. Every law school should have a curriculum devoted ENTIRELY to convicting cops of crimes. EVERY case where a cop is convicted of a crime should be studied, so that prosecuting attorneys and D.A.'s can learn how it's done.
Damn...when she said the boyfriend had a ring picked out...💔

My big sister died suddenly out of the blue last year, which destroyed me and felt unjust. But what Breonna’s sister is going through is incomprehensible even to me.

I hope Breonna is resting in power. I hope our sisters have met up there and are fighting for the movement as powerful angels. And I hope the world never goes on turning as usual. May it continue to be rocked by the chants of those seeking justice for this woman.
She is very articulate with sharing her emotions and explaining her perspective and the facts of this horrific tragic murder. Rip and happy birthday.
the EMT saying, "We killed one of our own" just broke me
Praying for her. I admire how strong she is

Happy birthday breonna 🕊️🙏🏻
I'm just so surprised. Notice how she was able to do this without breaking down even once. If that was me, I wouldn't be able to hold my tears in. I can't even imagine the pain she is going through. My siblings are my best friends, and I wouldn't be able to live knowing that they had passed. Juniyah is such a strong and amazing girl. All of my prayers are going to her and her family. I hope they all stay strong and Rest In Power Breonna. You will be missed by millions.

Lizzy Chrome
Lizzy Chrome:
An emergency responder NOW of all times, that compared with the details of her murder, WHY is Breonna being treated as a footnote in police brutality? I understand that her murder wasn't filmed like Floyd's, but this should still be an extra special case.

On a side note, I find the cheesy angelic music is beyond insulting to this real life tragedy.
Soul Glow
Soul Glow:
this reminds me 1) I really love my sister and God bless her. This loss.... devastating. I had a breakthrough moment and really allowed myself to empathize with her. that hurts. 2) I am in awe of her composure. I would be..... a mad woman filled with ANGER AND RAGE and them taking her from me. God bless her. I have become so desensitized to these losses. the way the media commodities death is disgraceful.

Living here in Louisville in the mist of it all, I’m proud to say I’m proud of my city for coming together in the life of this young lady! They are still marching and will CONTINUE TO MARCh UNTIL THE MEN INVOLVED ARE CHARGED! BREONNA YOUR LIFE WAS NOT FOR GRANTED! We love you sis!! ❤️🤞🏽🥺❤️❤️❤️
Her official police report, from what I hear, apparently tries to cover it up.
The MAYOR OR GOVERNOR needs to be help accountable for placing those in charge, if proven dishonest should be repercussions.

So sad...I'm praying for justice!!
Spirit & Associates
Spirit & Associates:
I implore legal activists to utilize all of the footage of police using excessive force and, in some cases, outright assaulting peaceful protesters as evidence to initiate legal action against the individual perpetrators and/or their departments!
This made me so emotional. Let the record show that we will not, never forget all these people that have been killed. NEVER. The movement is stronger than ever. We want justice! ✊🏿

Tormented Soul:
Wow, I can't believe how composed and well spoken she is. I would be a basket case. To hear her tell the story just makes me sick from some where deep down inside. This was a sense less killing that never never should have happened. Breonna and her family were robbed of her life and their futures. Bless that family and her boyfriend. I hope they can find the faith strength and courage to move forward.
This is one of the most tragic and infuriating stories that I've heard, thank God her sister wasn't home that night. RIP Breonna

I appreciate so much this reporting style. Allowing the sister time to talk about her sister forces people to look at this as a human issue and not a political one. This was an American citizen executed by a police department and no one in this country should be excusing it

The young woman is so strong. I can't even imagine her pain! This is so fricking sad! They need to be fired and the chief who is hiding info needs to be replaced also! 2 months later! Are you kidding me. So they not think what they did was wrong!
:( Breonna was my age. She seemed so lovely. Rest In Peace Breonna. ❤️

It's wild to me, how it seemed like her life only mattered when they found out she was EMT. Complete BS, so you mean to tell me that people's lives don't matter, unless they're apart of law enforcement?!

You can hear the pain in her voice, yet she remains calm as she explains the aftermath of her sister's murder.

Her strength 💪 and control are beyond words. I just don't know what to say.
Breonna Taylor....lost her life on my son's birthday! We will never forget her and we will now celebrate her in addition to my son. She Deserves Justice.. I will be lifting her sister and family up in healing prayer and sending energy to the protesters to keep fighting the good fight.. love love 🖤🙏🏾💜✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏻
Her sister is strong. If it was me, all my grace would have went out the window. I've cried so many times for Bre. I can't even imagine what her families lives are like right now, because even mine took a slight pause. I woke up one night, starting to think about it, started crying because I heard someone coming towards my front door in the middle of the night and didn't know what to do. I now sleep with my door locked because that's the best I can do. I've made a YT video, (audios a little messed up so i haven't posted it) I told myself that whatever I create in her honor has to be RIGHT. I refuse to just chant her name for a month and forget.
Chanie A
Chanie A:
I don't know what happened. But I see from what she says at 3:20 "they can't believe they killed one of their own", that people have no clue when their perceptions are so wrong. They couldn't perceive that they misjudged a situation and a complete stranger, who turned out to be more like themselves that they could have realized.
Its amazing to me how people allow this to happen to their family members and not take revenge. Those cops would have to pay one way or another if that happened to my family and they were innocent.
