Cop charged in relation to raid which resulted in Breonna Taylor's death pleads not guilty

The only police officer indicted after the killing of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky, during a botched raid pleaded not guilty on Monday on three counts of wanton endangerment.
 
Former detective Brett Hankison was indicted by a grand jury last Wednesday and charged with endangering Taylor's neighbors because some of the 10 bullets he fired during the March 13 raid on her home entered an adjacent apartment.
 
The other two officers who shot Taylor were not charged at after Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, a Black Republican, concluded their use of  force was justified.
 
The lack of charges against any of the three men, all of  them white, for Taylor's death triggered a new wave of the protests against police brutality and racism.
