World News – US – Illegal assembly has already been declared in Louisville (Update: Two officers shot dead)


The announcement that no charges have been brought against officers for the death of Breonna Taylor led to a protest march by the BLM in the town There were scuffles with police and about an hour ago (as of this writing) the police declared a gathering illegal and ordered everyone to clear the area There are several reporters on the ground Let’s start with Julio Rosas from Townhall:

On the ground in Louisville, Ky for @townhallcom and the protesting crowd just heard the charges announced by the grand jury for the Breonna Taylor case They are not happy at all, some people are crying imageTwittercom / DwGcYKyha4

As the BLM crowd chanted, « If we didn’t get it, burn it! » they marched outside the barricaded area of ​​Louisville and halted traffic at an intersection imageTwittercom / cIUtveA7xV

Does anyone else think the Trump campaign or the Republicans could be behind this Uhaul van that is handing out shields and “killing the police” in Louisville? It would be so easy for Trump and the GOP to sell their stupid story, wouldn’t it? imageTwittercom / vn8Aj8lCpF

Sure, there’s a video of the walkers with these same signs, but those idiots don’t care:

I will update this post as the night goes on. I don’t hope it stays peaceful or even « mostly peaceful »

At least two Louisville metro police officers were gunned down in downtown Louisville on Wednesday night, just eight hours after an indictment was returned in the Breonna Taylor case

A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed the number of agents to the Courier Journal

I can’t verify this yet This is a clip that I see circulating and which could illustrate the moment when the shooting took place

Regg says they shot the cops, not in the air, a massive amount of cops are moving in the & ambulance arriving at the scene – guys with guns running, i have a hard time following #Louisville picTwittercom / qSEhpLsGxr

Update: Police statement was very brief Two officers were shot dead and both are in stable condition with non-fatal injuries One is in surgery Suspect has been arrested:

« If we just act on outrage, there is no justice – mob justice is not justice »
