Today would have been Breonna Taylor's 27th birthday. She's dead. On March 13, LMPD officers shot her in her apartment after activating a no-knock warrant in search of someone who was not there. Breonna's boyfriend Kenneth Walker awoke from the police invasion and shot at what he thought were burglars. Police returned fire, wounding Walker and killing Taylor.

It seems like most have forgottenhttps://t.co/bQOB1o2abC— John Ziegler (@Zigmanfreud) August 26, 2018
The death of journalism is upon us. There are no watchdogs to keep an eye on political and societal thievery. Watch this video or ignore it and go look at post about puppies. HBO's John Oliver dissects the patient. Pundit and radio host John Ziegler dissects Oliver's message.
