I'm glad the family has compensation for their loss, but 12M won't bring Breonna back.

The murderers need to be prosecuted.

1. The 12 million dollars isn't supposed to bring her back.

It's to make the people paying the money feel so much pain that they don't want to go on living.

If we don't dis-incentivize non-judicial murder, it's just going to keep happening. We can prosecute all the cops we want (and I hope Breonna's murderers get thrown under the jail...) but if we don't go after the ones who hire them and allow an atmosphere of toxic racism to persist at police precincts, it's just going to keep happening.

2. I don't get it. The warrant was for the wrong address, so breaking & entering

To start.
Illegal discharge of a firearm second.

The facts are not in dispute; they were in a place they had no right to be, and fired upon the legal residents of the property defending it with a legal firearm.

What's there left to say?

5. Yes, and that's good, but not felony arrests for Breonna's murder.

8. Arrests won't accomplish much until Judges and Juries start sending

police officers that commit clear murder to prison. Until then, it is easier and more effective to reform police department procedures and hiring/training practices. I believe one thing should happen is using Civil Service Exam scores as only one of a mix of factors that are viewed when deciding to hire. Also, getting rid of generational hiring.

6. It's to force change. Make the system change.

This is how structural change is made. Protect civil rights - this is TrumpRepublicanism's next assault.

7. The cops should be prosecuted.

Period.
