Breonna Taylor’s family is still fighting for justice, but they are grateful for any change that has happened as a result of the 26-year-old being murdered by police. They lately joined Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) for the signing of Breonna’s Law, which bans no-knock search warrants.
Northam said at a ceremonial bill-signing event, “Today we’ve taken a step forward to make sure other families don’t suffer the same loss as your family,” reports The Washington Post.
The governor also added, “Today is not a cause for celebration. Today is a somber occasion.”
Bianca Austin, Breonna’s aunt, said, “Even though it is quite heart breaking . . . It’s an honor to be here to note that Virginia understands the importance of banning no-knock warrants. We hope this encourages other states to get onboard. . . and that people can follow Virginia’s footsteps in the right direction.”
