George Clooney, others reacts to Breonna Taylor case

George Clooney has joined other stars in condemning a decision to charge just one of the police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor.

Hospital worker Taylor, 26, was shot multiple times as officers stormed her home in Louisville, Kentucky, in March.

Clooney, a Kentucky native, said he was “ashamed” by the decision to charge Brett Hankison, not with Ms Taylor’s death, but with “wanton endangerment”.

Actors Viola Davis and Jeffrey Wright have also voiced their frustrations.

Taylor’s death on 13 March, along with those of George Floyd and others, has become a rallying cry for Black Lives Matter protesters around the world.

There have been widespread calls for the three officers involved in her death, who are all white, to be charged with murder or manslaughter.

On Wednesday it was announced that Mr Hankison would be charged on three counts of wanton endangerment for firing into a neighbour’s apartment during the raid.

No charges are to be brought against Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove, the other two officers involved.
