87 people arrested during protest at Kentucky attorney general’s home

Protesters gather outside of Kentucky Attorney General's house

Hip Hop star YBN Cordae has reportedly been arrested whilst at a peaceful protest which was held outside the Kentucky Attorney General's house in a protest about the murder of Breonna Taylor.

Records show The Real Housewives of Atlanta star was booked just before 8 p.m. EST on three charges: intimidating a participant in legal process, second-degree disorderly conduct and third-degree criminal trespassing. Washington noted all protesters were given the opportunity to leave before being arrested.

After news of Stills' arrest circulated, many current and former National Football League players stood solidarity with Stills and called for the officers connected to Taylor's death to be arrested.

Taylor, a 26-year-old Black emergency room technician, died after she was hit at least eight times during an ensuing shootout.

Taylor's case has become an worldwide cause célèbre after the 26-year-old was slaughtered in a hail of bullets months ago by undercover Louisville cops back on March 13. Narcotics officers were serving a no-knock warrant, but found no drugs on the premises. One of the officers involved, Brett Hankison, has been fired. They chanted, "Say her name - Breonna Taylor", wore matching t-shirts bearing the name of the nonprofit Until Freedom, and sported masks with Taylor's name. "We must now escalate our actions so that the powers that be know, we will not stop until we get justice for Breonna and her family".
