Breonna Taylor’s Mom Teams Up with Senator Rand Paul and Rep. Morgan McGarvey to Reintroduce ‘Justice for Breonna Taylor Act’

Breonna Taylor’s Mother, Senator Rand Paul & Rep. Morgan McGarvey Reintroduce ‘The Justice For Breonna Taylor Act’

Breonna Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, has teamed up with Senator Rand Paul and Democratic representative Morgan McGarvey to reintroduce their push to prohibit no-knock search warrants, a move aimed at securing justice for Breonna Taylor.

The proposed legislation, dubbed ‘The Justice for Breonna Taylor Act,’ is making a return after Senator Paul initially introduced it in June 2020, though it struggled to gain traction at the time. This time, Paul has joined forces with McGarvey and Democratic Sen. Corey Booker of New Jersey in the hopes of garnering more attention and support for the bill.

The essence of the bill, condensed into a concise two-page document, mandates that officers must give notice of their authority or purpose before executing a warrant, as reported by Courier Journal. If passed, this legislation would have implications for all state and local agencies receiving funding from the U.S. Department of Justice, thereby encompassing the majority of police departments across the nation.

The urgency behind such legislation was catalyzed by the tragic death of Breonna Taylor in March 2020 at the hands of Louisville Metro Police officers. Taylor was fatally shot when officers forcibly entered her home without warning in the dead of night, purportedly to execute a search warrant related to Taylor’s ex-boyfriend, according to WLKY.

In the aftermath, it was revealed that the warrant had been obtained under false pretenses by Officer Kelly Goodlett, who was accused of fabricating evidence to support the raid.

The fateful encounter unfolded as Kenneth Walker, Taylor’s partner, fired a single shot, believing intruders were breaking in. The officers, failing to identify themselves, returned fire, resulting in the death of Breonna Taylor and injuries to one officer, Jonathan Mattingly.

Speaking at a press conference in Louisville, Kentucky, Breonna’s mother reflected on the profound impact of her daughter’s tragic death.

“Four years have passed. It has been a constant struggle, and it continues to be so. Yet, I persist, ensuring that what happened to Breonna remains a rallying point to prevent its recurrence. That is what truly matters,” Palmer expressed emotionally.

Senator Paul emphasized the bill’s dual purpose of safeguarding both civilians and law enforcement officers, advocating for alternative, less hazardous methods of apprehension.

“There are safer alternatives,” Paul stressed. “I pursue this not only out of concern for those on the other side of the door but also out of concern for the police… It poses a significant risk to law enforcement personnel. There are far more prudent ways to effect arrests than storming in during the night.”

Democratic Representative McGarvey echoed the sentiment, acknowledging the profound anguish endured by Taylor’s mother since the tragedy.

“Standing alongside Tamika Palmer, Breonna Taylor’s mother, is a sobering reminder of the unimaginable pain she has borne,” McGarvey expressed.

Despite public outcry, none of the officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor have been convicted of her murder.
