Oprah Has Commissioned 26 Giant Billboards Demanding Breonna Taylor's Killers To be Arrested

The billboards will be placed across Louisville demanding justice for Breonna.

Oprah's magazine, O, has commissioned 26 billboards that are to be placed at multiple places in Louisville, seeking justice for the death of Breonna Taylor. As reported by NPR , the billboard reads: "Demand that the police involved in killing Breonna Taylor be arrested and charged."

Until Freedom , the website that has been actively involved in efforts to get justice for the victim has also been mentioned on the billboard. A quote by Oprah also features prominently on the board that reads: "If you turn a blind eye to racism, you become an accomplice to it."

Breonna was killed in her own home when law enforcement officers stormed into her apartment while executing a 'no-knock' warrant. Her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, a licensed gun owner had thought that the officers were intruders and had fired shots. The police retaliated and Breonna was shot during the firing.

Brett Hankison, one of the officers involved in the case was fired in June for having "displayed an extreme indifference to the value of human life." The city has, since then, banned the use of no-knock warrants. The demands for the arrest of the officers has persisted and the 26 billboards are supposed to signify the 26 years she was alive and with her family.
