Tension heightens in Louisville, hundreds march through city as curfew nears

Protesters against racial injustice and police brutality descended on the streets of Kentucky’s largest city on Wednesday (September 23) night to express their frustration that no police officer was charged in the shooting of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker.

Police in riot gear and armored vehicles moved past Louisville City Hall to clear protesters from a plaza ahead of a 9 p.m. curfew, as aerial video showed hundreds marching towards the city on bridges.

Two white policemen who fired into Taylor’s apartment will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday.

Taylor, 26, was killed in front of her armed boyfriend shortly past midnight after three officers forced their way into her home with a search warrant.

Crowds of varying sizes were also gathering in New York, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, and Chicago.
