Oprah Winfrey has done it again. No one else has graced the cover of O Magazine in 20 years until now. Oprah made an executive decision to honor Breonna Taylor on the August edition of the magazine. We all know the unfortunate story of the murder of this young lady.
It has been since March and the officers who killed Breonna Taylor have still not been arrested. Welcome to America where several protesters have been arrested for protesting the murder but the killer cops are still living their lives accordingly. The cops murdered this young woman while she slept. While she slept! After what seems to be countless days and hours of investigation, the Louisville, Kentucky Police Department fired officer Brett Hankison on June 23; the other two officers remain on administrative assignment while Breonna’s mother and family have no sense of closure. A special Kentucky prosecutor is leading an investigation into both the shooting and the department’s handling of the shooting to determine whether to charge the three officers who fired their weapons relentlessly; the FBI is leading its own investigation as well. Most people just want to know what is taking so long.
While millions have posted, signed petitions, called in, and protested, hopefully with Oprah shedding some light and offering her personal opinion on the matter helps to get the arrest Breonna’s family and supporters deserve.
Via the post, Oprah starts off her thoughts with five small yet powerful words, “She was just like me.” Let that sink in.
