The latest news of the grand jury’s decision not to prosecute the police for criminal charges directly related to the death of Breonna Taylor

Despite the curfew, more than 100 people gathered outside the church in downtown Louisville, Kentucky. The demonstrators remained basically peaceful on the sidewalks around the First Church church on Friday night and shouted “Say her name, Brona Taylor” and “You can’t stop the revolution.” After the curfew the day before, the church grounds provided a short refuge for demonstrators.

This is the third consecutive day of protests in Louisville since the grand jury decided on Wednesday not to prosecute any police for Taylor’s death. The black woman was killed in a police raid in March.

Here, you need to understand the case of BREONNA TAYLOR:

After a grand jury decided not to bring any charges against the Louisville police, the protesters have been marching towards Louisville and other cities. At a press conference on Friday, Family Attorney Ben Krupp called for the release of the jury’s transcripts, and Taylor’s relatives criticized the Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron. Also on Friday, the court pleaded not guilty to Larynzo Johnson, who was accused of shooting and killing two police officers in protests following the grand jury announcement.

Louisville Metro Police said they declared an illegal assembly and demonstrated on Friday night at a group of demonstrators marching through the streets of Kentucky’s city.

The agency said

After officials repeatedly asked demonstrators to walk from the street to the sidewalk, the assembly was declared illegal.

The police added in the statement that when they ordered them to leave, the crowd began to disperse, but two people were arrested. The department did not immediately indicate the cause of the arrest, nor did it provide information on the allegations.

This is the third consecutive day of protests in Louisville since the grand jury decided on Wednesday not to prosecute any police for Taylor’s death.

The black woman was killed in a police raid in March. Dozens of demonstrators were cordoned off by the police and unable to march in Louisville, Kentucky, and later assembled in the downtown plaza, which has been the focal point of protests against the death of Breonna Taylor. A leader of the team then urged the rest to go home.
