Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick urged abolishing “white supremacist” police after a grand jury decision over the shooting death of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky.
Kaepernick backed up his demand by saying the police “stole Breonna Taylor’s life.”

Taylor was killed during a police raid on her home in March.
During the raid, Taylor’s boyfriend shot one of the police officers as they entered the apartment and she was killed when they returned fire.
The grand jury did not charge any of the three police officers over Taylor’s death but one officer was indicted over his actions during the incident.
Former police officer Brett Hankison was indicted on multiple counts of wanton endangerment regarding the way he handled his gun resulting in bullets ending up in an apartment near Taylor’s.
Taylor’s lawyer was also upset over the grand jury decision.
If Brett Hankison's behavior was wanton endangerment to people in neighboring apartments, then it should have been wanton endangerment in Breonna Taylor's apartment too. In fact, it should have been ruled wanton murder!

Following the decision, protesters hit the streets of Louisville, and tragically two police officers were shot.
Both officers are recovering and a suspect in the shooting was arrested.
NBC News reported 127 people were arrested during the protests including, “The shooting suspect Larynzo D. Johnson, has been charged with 14 counts of wanton endangerment and two counts of assault.”
Kaepernick and Black Lives Matter activists continue to promote anti-police propaganda that will only harm police officers and those they protect.
Despite his reckless comments, Kaepernick is being rewarded by Hollywood.
Earlier this year, The Walt Disney Company announced a film partnership with Kaepernick.
