The Department of Justice has released a scathing report accusing the Louisville, Kentucky, police department of unlawfully discriminating against the city's Black population, as well as against people with behavioral health disabilities. The report concludes an investigation that began after the police killing of Breonna Taylor, who was shot dead in her own home during a no-knock police raid on March 13, 2020. The DOJ also announced the establishment of a consent decree with Louisville police and an independent monitor who will oversee police reforms. "What we have are systems that absolutely need to be disrupted," says Sadiqa Reynolds, longtime attorney and community activist in Louisville.
