A number of NFL players expressed disappointment and frustration regarding Wednesday's news that a Kentucky grand jury brought no charges against Louisville police for their role in the death of Breonna Taylor.
The one indictment brought by the grand jury was three counts of wanton endangerment against fired Officer Brett Hankison for shooting into Taylor's neighbors' homes during the raid on the night of March 13. The FBI is still investigating potential violations of federal law in the case.
Prosecutors said Wednesday that two officers who fired their weapons at Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman, were justified in using force to protect themselves.
Ben Crump, a lawyer for Taylor's family, denounced the decision as "outrageous and offensive," and protesters shouting, "No justice, no peace!" began marching through the streets. Some sat quietly and wept. Later, scuffles broke out between police and protesters, and some were arrested.
