Breonna Taylor: Benjamin Crump addresses settlement with her family | USA TODAY 1

 

Louisville's metro government is expected to announce a "substantial" financial settlement Tuesday with the family of Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old Black woman fatally shot by police in her apartment six months ago, The Courier Journal has learned.

The settlement may be announced as early as 2 p.m., according to a person knowledgeable about the details who said he could not be identified. The source said they couldn't release the amount.

In addition to the payment, the deal is expected to include several policing reforms, including a requirement that commanders approve all search warrants before they go to a judge, the person told The Courier Journal, part of the USA TODAY Network.

The accord will also provide housing credits to officers who agree to live within the city, and it would seek the authority for drug and alcohol testing of officers involved in any shooting.

    Her boyfriend should pay her family because he caused her to be killed. He fired the first shot.

  5. Have the cops been fired or arrested yet? The police should not be permitted to use taxpayer money to buy their way out of murder.
    Is this taxpayer money used to payoff the family?
    If so, justice has not been served. Until the murderer cops are behind bars they got away with murder paid for by the taxpayers.

  11. i dont understand why they will pay officers to do volunteer work.

  12. 1,000s upon thousands spent investigating her and her drug dealing ways. Both got dressed and he armed himself. THe bf is responsible for her death. Reward the criminals and the females that made the drug dealers. Do tell how many has Breonna killed with her drugs.

  13. Why it seem like getting shot by the cops nowadays is like a lottery ticket/new hustle type scam?
