The red hat closely associated with President Trump and his campaigns had the usual “Make America” as its frontline but had “Great Again” strikethrough. Instead, words were added that resulted in the hat reading “Make America arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.” “James, who is playing a growing role as said Taylor, 26, “had a bright future and her life was taken away and there were no arrests and no justice, not only for her but for her family.” And we want to continue to shed light on this situation, which was unfair. This is what it is about. ”
Earlier today, ETOnline reports, James and several teammates were pictured wearing the hats as they left the Disney World hotel, which served as the home for players of the so-called NBA bubble.

Taylor was killed when officers broke into her apartment late the night of March 13 with a “no knock” narcotics search warrant. They found no medication. An officer was gunned down by Taylor’s boyfriend, who says he thought the officers were invaders. He was charged initially, but the charges were eventually dropped. Only one of the three officers involved in Taylor’s death has been fired and none have been charged.
Taylor’s family sued police in May, charging them with wrongful death, excessive force and gross negligence.
In June, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer signed “Breonna’s Law,” which prohibits the use of non-beating search warrants and requires officers to wear body cameras when executing search warrants.
Michael Brown Jr.’s father, who was also shot dead by police in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014, also called for justice in Taylor’s case and recently traveled to Louisville to join a protest with Until Freedom.
On Monday night, former first lady Michelle Obama spoke of Taylor’s death while delivering an impassioned speech on the first night of the Democratic National Convention.
“Here at home, as George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and an endless list of innocent people of color continue to be murdered. Stating the simple fact that a black life matters is still mocked by the highest office in the land, ”Obama said. .
“Unfortunately, it is America that is on display for the next generation,” she added.
