Tamika Palmer, the mother of deceased 26-year-old Breonna Taylor, said in a Facebook post that the Lousiville branch of Black Lives Matter is a “fraud” that exploited her daughter’s death.
I think it’s crazy when people say they’ve been here since day 1, let me be clear Christopher 2x, The Montgomery family (Angie, Cheri, TiJuan & Craig) is the one and only day one’s not to mention Breonna’s friends and family but they’ve never needed Recognition immediately following is Until Freedom… I have never personally dealt with BLM Louisville and personally have found them to be fraud, Attica Scott another fraud, Then There’s the people at injustice Square a.k.a. BREEWAYY who has been 100 and held it down but that doesn’t go to say everyone down there but they know who they are & also never needed recognition…I could walk in a room full of people who claim to be here for Breonna’s family who don’t even know who I am, I’ve watched y’all raise money on behalf of Breonna’s family who has never done a damn thing for us nor have we needed it or asked so Talk about fraud. It’s amazing how many people have lost focus Smdh. I’m a say this before I go I’m so sick of some of y’all and I was last anybody who needs it I’m with this shit enough is enough[.]
Breonna Taylor has become a common name used by Black Lives Matter and Antifa protestors.
The city of Louisville paid Taylor’s family $12 million in a settlement. The settlement also resulted in procedural changes for the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department, which now requires “requiring a supervisor to sign off on search warrants and pairing a social worker with a police officer on some calls”
The officer who shot Taylor, Brett Hankison, faces three counts of “wanton endangerment in the first degree.” This sentence is a Class D felony that carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
