They indicted one officer for "reckless endangerment" of the family in the apartment next to Breonna Taylor's. NO ONE was charged for the homicide of Breonna Taylor.

(quoted from word of mouth and not a link)

This will most likely lead to more violent protests on the streets and not good news for Biden's campaign.

edit: (can a staff member fix the 'Bronna' spelling mistake please?)

Who is being quoted ?  Also why would this not be good news for Biden ?  No that it should be good or bad news.

Sadly, it is a shame what happened to Breonna Taylor and the acts leading to this and the encounter as a whole should be dissected fully and charges laid if necessary

I'm quoting a friend who I trust to be informed. Are you asking for a link?

The reason why I suggest that it's not good news for Biden is because the street violence is being used as a talking point against Biden. There are accusations of electing Biden will contribute to just 'more' violence

I have to concur with your final sentence that begins with 'sadly'.

The City of Louisville, KY agreed to pay $12 million to Breonna's family.

Here's a link I found: https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/grand-jury-report-breonna-taylor-1.5735521

A Kentucky grand jury on Wednesday indicted a single police officer for shooting into neighbouring apartments but did not move forward with charges against any officers for their role in Breonna Taylor's death.

And it sounds like you're bot the only one anticipating violent "protests": https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/09/23/breonna-taylor-case-decision-louisville-braces-protests/3501220001/

Something to suggest the authorities are not being paranoid to board up downtown and deploy National Guard:

A lot of people are upset at this ruling because it isn't a murder charge and they don't actually understand, or care, why it can't be. They will riot over this and act lime this is proof the system is racist.

What is happening in America is quite different from what is happening in Canada. We know we don't want to copy them but we aren't intent on examining the reasons why it's so different. I'll try to get that conversation going here.
