Indictment doesn't even begin to bring justice for Breonna Taylor

The mere phrase "collateral damage" evokes a visceral reaction. But so does the realization that they decided to prosecute an officer for prospective loss of life, but none of the officers for the actual loss of life. It confounds the mind as much as the soul.
 
But until there is a judicial reassessment of how we evaluate the reasonableness of an officer's use of lethal force, it is justice that will end up being collateral damage.
 
Thursday will be 196 days since Breonna Taylor was killed inside of her home.
 
And still, no officer has been charged for her death.
