Protesters gathered in downtown Miami Saturday to denounce the Kentucky grand jury that did not hold any officers accountable for the shooting death of Breonna Taylor, who was killed by police in a botched raid in March.
A diverse crowd of hundreds marched in Louisville's streets chanting "Black Lives Matter" on Saturday night, the fourth night of protests after a grand jury declined to charge officers in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor. A few police cars followed behind, with officers telling protesters to stay on the sidewalk and out of the street before the march ended. The square emptied out as people departed, many dispersing though one group headed to a nearby church where protesters had found refuge on previous nights.
For the second Saturday in a row, protesters gathered outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's home.
Police arrested a 25-year-old woman in a hit-and-run incident during demonstrations in Buffalo earlier this week over a Kentucky grand jury's decision not to charge three police officers in the death of Breonna Taylor. The Buffalo Police Department said it charged Joanna Gollnau, 25, of Buffalo, on Friday with felony reckless endangerment in the first degree and reckless driving for allegedly striking a bicyclist with her pickup truck during a protest in Niagara Square on Wednesday night.
