Kentucky Attorney General Drops Felony Charges Against Breonna Taylor Protesters


Earlier this week, protesters, angered that the people responsible for the death of Breonna Taylor have not been brought to justice, staged an occupation on the front lawn of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s home. Police then swooped in, arresting all 87 for intimidating a participant in a legal process. However, they won’t face any jail time. Prosecutors announced Friday that felony charges have been dropped and records would be expunged. Other charges including disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing remain under review.

Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT, was killed by Louisville Metro Police Department officers on the night of March 13, as cops executed a no-knock warrant to search her home for narcotics.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams, Yandy Smith, activist Tameka Mallory and  NFL player Kenny Stills was among the protester’s that were taken into custody.
