  • Ballistics report raises questions in Breonna Taylor shooting news

    The ballistics report from the Kentucky State Police could not determine that the boyfriend of Breonna Taylor shot one of the officers who responded to the scene. ABC News has obtained a portion of the Kentucky State Police's ballistic report indicating that the bullet that struck Sgt. John Mattingly "was neither identified nor eliminated as having been fired" from Kenneth Walker's gun "due to the limited markings of comparative value." Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman, was shot to death in her own apartment in March as police were executing a "no-knock" warrant.

    The “extraordinary commitment” of police officers is “so often taken for granted,” the Prince of Wales said yesterday, as he paid tribute to Sgt Matt Ratana.

The Black-white wealth gap has been and remains vast -- the net worth of the average white family is 10 times greater than the average Black family, according to a 2016 report from the Brookings Institute.
