Breonna Taylor Statue Smashed in Oakland Picture

Police are investigating an act of vandalism against a bust in downtown Oakland honoring Breonna Taylor.

The ceramic sculpture, which was erected in Latham Square just two weeks ago with the phrase “Say Her Name Breonna Taylor” on a plaque, had sections smashed off Saturday, artist Leo Carson said.

Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency room technician, was shot by Louisville police when officers entered her home in March during a botched drug raid. Protests spread across the country in the name of Taylor and George Floyd, as well as other Black Americans killed by police.

Carson, who lives in Oakland, got tipped off to the vandalism on Saturday and headed to the scene. He found the damaged bust, its broken pieces placed back on the pedestal.

“It looked like someone struck it with a baseball bat or something very heavy,” Carson said.

“I was really devastated emotionally. I was sad and angry,” he said. “Really, it’s an attack on Breonna Taylor and Black Lives Matter and it’s racist intimidation.”

LA Students to be FORCED to take COVID-19 Vaccine if they want to return to school…

Once COVID-19 vaccines are available to children, Los Angeles students will have to be immunized before they can return to campus, Supt. Austin Beutner said Monday.

Beutner however, did not suggest that campuses remain closed until then. Instead, he said, the state should set standards for reopening all schools, clearly justify the directives, and then require campuses to open when the standards are achieved.

A COVID-19 vaccine requirement would be “no different than students who are vaccinated for measles or mumps,” Beutner said in a pre-recorded briefing. He also compared students, staff and others getting a COVID-19 vaccine to those who “are tested for tuberculosis before they come on campus. That’s the best way we know to keep all on a campus safe.”

But a vaccine will not be in the arms of students for some time. The two vaccines that have received emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration so far were tested almost exclusively in adults. The clinical trial of the shot made by Pfizer and BioNTech included 153 16- and 17-year-olds, and some of the experts who reviewed the data for the FDA said there weren’t enough teens to determine whether the vaccine is safe for that age group, let alone for younger children.
