Protesters Arrested During Kentucky Derby Over Breonna Taylor Killing


10:39 AM PT — Louisville PD finally got back to us on what the protesters were arrested for exactly — and they’re all minor infractions that the police say are related to protesting … and failing to obey orders when they impeded on the restaurant’s property and faced off with customers.

Five different people were booked, and the charges range from disregarding an officer’s signals for directing traffic/fleeing, evading police and even hitchhiking … to disorderly conduct, failure to disperse and possession of an open alcoholic beverage/possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

The cops insist at least one of the protesters was also armed … but you can’t really see that in the video. The man who was clearly brandishing a gun does not appear to have been arrested.

Several protesters near the Kentucky Derby were arrested Saturday as they protested the killing of Breonna Taylor … but as for why they got arrested — well the cops won’t say.

Around 50 protesters marched by the entrance of Churchill Downs with signs that read, “We haven’t forgotten Breonna.”

The protesters ended up at La Chasse restaurant, and suddenly a man dining on the patio pulled out a gun and trained it on the group. There’s no evidence from the video that the man was threatened.

Kentucky is an open carry state, so when cops came he was in the clear. But then, there was a foot chase and cops corralled 3 protesters and arrested them.

We contacted the Louisville PD and asked why the protesters were arrested. They wouldn’t say but told us to file a public records request and even then they might not tell us. Sheesh.

As you know, none of the cops have been charged for Breonna’s death and her family is especially upset that the grand jury proceeding was a sham. Attorney General Daniel Cameron told the media his office had instructed grand jurors on possible homicide charges when grand jurors said they had not been so instructed.
