Only moments after the expected announcement in the Breonna Taylor case, violence exploded in Louisville, Kentucky. Video footage is going viral and this is just the beginning. Stay tuned for details as they emerge.

Violence explodes in Louisville

The violence following the expected Breonna Taylor decision has already begun as rioters clash with federal police decked out in full riot gear. There are reports of people walking around with AR-15’s. On Wednesday, a grand jury indicted one of the officers, former detective Brett Hankison, with “several counts of wanton endangerment” but that didn’t appease the crowd. They’re still howling for blood. Hankison fired the shots while serving a “no-knock” warrant.

The violence is the result of the other cops being cleared. Jonathan Mattingly and Myles Cosgrove “were not charged at all in an action that Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said ‘was justified to protect themselves.'” The mob doesn’t like the ruling. Over 100 “protesters” have descended on Jefferson Square Park, “which has served as the home base for Louisville Black Lives Matter protests over the last 118 days.”

Besides their usual chants of “No Justice, No Peace” and “Keep going,” a man “used a wooden bat to try to break a UPS storefront.” Police fired a volley of pepper balls and protesters were soon spotted sitting on a side parking lot with injuries they said stemmed from the law-enforcement onslaught. Some were taken into police custody.”

National Guard deployed and so are the militia

To help control the violence, “several National Guard humvees were seen driving into downtown Louisville, which had been largely closed down ahead of the grand-jury announcement.” In the same area, “a militia group in tactical gear was walking around—several of the members armed.”

The mayor and the “interim police chief” have already declared a state of emergency, even before the decision came in. Expecting violence, “streets and downtown parking garages were closed, some local businesses boarded up their storefronts, and the federal courthouse was shuttered for the week.” The Governor of Kentucky, Andy Beshear, “activated the National Guard on Wednesday to quell any fallout and the mayor implemented a three-day curfew.”

  1. Funny how they have conveniently forgot about the fact that her boyfriend was the 1st one to shoot, I guess they want things to get to the point that police officers should not defend themselves after getting shot at? The Police also announced who they were at the front door!
