LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The federal government has filed civil rights charges against four Louisville police officers over the drug raid that led to the death of Breonna Taylor. She was a Black woman whose fatal shooting helped fuel the racial justice protests that rocked the nation in 2020. The charges field Thursday are another effort to hold law enforcement accountable for the killing of the 26-year-old medical worker after one of the officers was acquitted of state charges earlier this year. Attorney General Merrick Garland said Taylor should be alive today. The charges include unlawful conspiracy, use of force and obstruction of justice.
