Black Lives Matter protesters in Louisville, Kentucky responded by rioting and attacking police with incendiary devices and setting fire to the city's police department after the verdict on the shooting of a black woman. At least two police officers have been shot by rioters.
Violent protests also erupted in other American cities, including St Louis, Portland, Denver, Chicago, and Washington DC in response to the verdict about the shooting of Breonna Taylor.
In a press conference after the grand jury’s decision in the Breonna Taylor case, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced that no charges would be filed against police officers for shooting and killing Taylor.
Cameron revealed that police had in fact knocked on Taylor’s apartment door and announced themselves to the occupants. After gaining entry they were shot at by the victim’s drug-dealing boyfriend. When the police returned fire, Taylor was shot and killed.
On Wednesday night in Louisville, two officers were shot by BLM protesters and transported to Louisville University Hospital. In a livestream, a BLM supporter was heard shouting after shots were fired at law enforcement: “That’s how you gotta do it! That’s the way you do it!”
The rioters were filmed receiving shields and supplies from a rented truck. The vehicle was rented by Holly Zoller, an employee of The Bail Project. Jack Dempsey, Twitter CEO, has donated millions of dollars to the organisation. There are also several Soros operatives serving on the board.
Despite the continuing unrest driven by BLM and Antifa activists, the head of Homeland Security has singled out “white supremacists” as the danger facing the US.
