Breonna Taylor was a 26-year-old African-American emergency medical technician who dreamed of becoming a Register Nurse one day. Louisville Metro Police Department officers fatally shot her on March 13, 2020. She went to sleep and never woke up again. Not because of a medical condition, an accident, or injuring herself. Ms. Taylor was murdered in her sleep. She will never have the kids, the grandkids, her mother, will never be able to call her her phone or send her a text, or wrap her arms around her daughter. She will never celebrate a birthday. She will never be able to become the Nurse she dreamed.  Breonna Taylor's name must be said in hopes of holding those murder her accountable. As frontline defenders, we must hold accountable those who murdered Breonna Taylor while she was sleeping. 
Breona Taylor was a first responder that help save lives in the field. Therefore I challenge every Nurse to listen to the story of Breona Taylor and demand Justice by checking out:

We need to end qualified immunity for police.  

That is insanity of course and can be added to the many reasons the radical left is so dangerous.

If only you could articulate an argument about the pros or cons of having a police force immune from prosecution without the Trumpian nonsense.  Speaking of danger, is it dangerous for American troops if the Commander in Chief ignores intelligence and evidence that there is a bounty offered for their murder? Can you answer that without mentioning the radical left? Is it Pelosi's fault that Trump didn't know but our allies did?

The Supreme Court won't reexamine qualified immunity, the controversial legal doctrine that protects cops from misconduct lawsuits 

June 15, 2020,  

  • The Supreme Court decided Monday not to reexamine "qualified immunity." 
  • The legal mechanism shields police officers from accountability, reasoning that they need to be protected from lawsuits while doing their job.
  • When a police officer violates constitutional rights, the mechanism can render that behavior "immaterial," wrote Judge Don Willett, a Trump appointee for the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
  • But many legal experts say that qualified immunity is overly broad and infringes on civil-rights protections, and it's come under renewed scrutiny amid protests in the wake of George Floyd's death...

In plain language, "qualified immunity" means that a public official can't be sued for actions they take while acting in their official capacity — even if they violate someone's constitutional rights...

Police officers are not immune from prosecution.

Qualified immunity has nothing to do with prosecution.

While the on the books law allows them to avoid civil lawsuits that medical professionals cannot, the practice and procedure makes prosecution of police uncommon, unjust, and poorly tabulated.  Just like with incidents of violence and harm with Americans in police custody, the data is not compiled, not reported with any consistency, and sometimes intentionally obscured.

Are you trying to justify the murder of a young woman in her sleep because of the " Radical left"?.  Breonna Taylor was murdered because the police were forceful. Breonna Taylor was an EMT  (frontline defender ) saving lives with the aspiration of becoming a Nurse one day. However, you are trying to justify her murder with the far-left. I have one question for you and anyone who wants to answer.  Who is responsible for the over-policing and the murder of Breonna  Taylor and similar victims?  (I am not against the police. I am against racial injustice and the lack of accountability of  the police.)

There is no oversight for police officers. In my opinion, all Police Officers must go to school and obtain at least a bachelor's degree and must have a license to become an officer in the state. The office of verification should keep the information about each officer online just like they do for nursing. Police officers need to be held accountable for their actions like any other profession.

I agree. Trump and the administration have empowered racism.

Where are elected officials? This should be a law in the constitution to prevent abuse of power.
