“You’re going down there and you’re fighting for me. You’re fighting for your niece, Layla. You’re fighting for mom,” Larry Powell’s sister told him.
He has been in Louisville, Ky., for over two weeks to help in the fight for justice for Breonna Taylor. The 26-year-old emergency room technician died when police officers forcibly entered her apartment and, after a brief exchange with her and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired shots at her.
The call to arrest her killers has been echoed across internet and social media platforms, with people posting it on a daily basis and adding #BreonnaTaylor to their social media names.
