LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY - SEPTEMBER 24: Demonstrators raise their fists as they gather on the steps of the Louisville Metro Hall on September 24, 2020 in Louisville, Kentucky. A Kentucky grand jury indicted one police officer involved in the shooting of Breonna Taylor with three counts of wanton endangerment. No officers were indicted on charges in connection to Taylor's death.
Taylor was shot dead by police while in her Louisville home on March 13. Taylor and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were asleep when three Louisville Metro Police Department officers, including Brett Hankison, tried to execute a"no-knock" search warrant. The officers were investigating a suspected drug operation linked to Taylor's ex-boyfriend. No drugs were found in the apartment.

No officers were directly charged in connection with her death.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Hankison fired no shots that struck Taylor. He said Detective Myles Cosgrove and Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly were"justified" when they opened fire 22 times during the incident since they were returning fire.
In Louisville, where Taylor was killed, at least 24 people were arrested during demonstrations Thursday. Among those was Louisville State Rep. Attica Scott. She was charged, according to the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department, with riot in the 1st degree, failure to disperse and unlawful assembly.
Prior to curfew, Louisville police said protesters caused damage along their route at various locations, including tossing a flare into the Main Library. As curfew neared, protesters made their way to the First Unitarian Church, which let people gathered at the property to stay after curfew, officials said in a statement early Friday morning.
No arrests were made at the church and no National Guard members were deployed there, police said.Vehicles hitting protesters have become a familiar scene during the protests following Taylor's death. Two protesters were injured inhit-and-run incidents

Biden's ABC town hall live updates: Former VP faces voters in Philadelphia
With less than three weeks to Election Day, Democratic nominee Joe Biden will face voters directly in an ABC News Town Hall in Philadelphia Thursday night.
No one hurt and they took a wrong turn shit happens🇺🇸🇺🇸 If you are being chased by violent people do you stand around? Also note when they get stopped by the police their hands went up! This is a good lesson to learn if people are chasing you and if you get stopped by the police! Protesters need to stay the fuck out of the roads. Period
This is a bad look for protesters. Thug behavior isn't helping. It doesn't make for good PR. Win the hearts and minds. Change will come. MarthaSugalski I would be in fear for my life.....case closed The driver made a bad decision by trying to drive through the crowd. It doesn’t look like the driver was trying to hit anyone, but sped off when the mob started attacking his car. I feel sorry for the driver and irritated with the mob mentality.
Why were those animals trying to attack an innocent citizen? I would have feared for my life and it would have been a very very bad outcome for them. I bet his insurance goes up because of this BLM shot cops in KY, where’s your outrage? Why weren't the terrorists detained as well? Show the whole video fakenews
At 9 seconds it cuts out.... when the car who was just trying to get by.. gets jumped on. Then picks up after driving off. Gotta Love it These are not peaceful protesters these are gangsters that should be stoped. BLM = terrorist When I was a child I learned not to play in the street. The laws of physics taught me that cars don’t need to move for me. Who forgot to teach the “protesters” this simple concept?
So if I'm understanding correctly, you can't run as the mob attacks you? Looks like a mostly peaceful demonstration to me. I hope the car is OK Clearly we need more vigilantes to protect innocent bystanders at these riots. Blocking traffic and destroying peoples cars for trying to slowly get by. Nothing but a hateful and violent mob yet the driver gets arrested?
Ok so? Why didn't the police arrest the rioters illegally blocking the street and vandalizing that car? Police are clearly incapable of doing their job. This is what a Biden election will give America. Mobs ruling. Normal people being the suckers in the picture. These are modern day heroes! Many protesters cause expensive damages across the city. Time for them to wake up and protest and get the job done the legal way. Do not hurt people or destroy private property... period!
your right to peacefully protest ends at the curb. The mob blocking public roads should have been detained. No one else. He didn’t even hit anyone ffs! Why the hell is he in handcuffs 1) Car drives up to large crowd of protesters blocking public road, 2) protesters converge upon car, 3) ABC omits the segment of video feed showing the alleged altercation, 4) video feed cuts to the car driving away and being chased by protesters. Conclusions?
Did nothing wrong. He wasn’t speeding through . Unlawful gathering . If he sped through then he would be wrong CleanteamofNY Unnecessary violence. I don't agree w/this & am glad the cops showed up in time to prevent herd mentality from anything worse. Glad he was arrested, but ppl...we need to remember violence doesn't solve anything -tho I understand why.
why is the driver detained at gun point? He slowly went through and was attacked. We’re in upside down world. Did the police go after the people in the Truck or convertible? These people in the streets are mental ironic that the defund the police people got help from police MarthaSugalski I'm not stopping either. If I stop I'm shooting if I fear my life is in danger
The Headline is wrong, Should read BLM crowd ATTACKS a car and Forces them off the road with another vehicle and ATTACKS them again. He is innocent. detained for what reason!? those “protestors” who viciously went after and attacked that driver ought to be arrested for battery and reckless driving. the driver that went through the crowd should go free. they did nothing wrong. those “protestors” got off easy.
I guess they should get the fuck out of the road Yes it does, very slowly and carefully despite being attacked during and after passing the mob ... ... my question is this, being British I don't understand your laws all that well, why was the driver arrested and not the mob? Looks like a bunch of unemployed trash running around on a public street then chasing down a car. Not sure there’s anything else here.
Imagine this reversed.. A bunch of trump supporters blocking an intersection.. a BLM activist drives through them not hurting anyone, but the trump supporters chase the car down with their own car, cutting it off and then surround with people and attack the vehicle. ALL LIVES SPLATTER.....STAY OFF THE STREETS
Absolutely shameful. BLM is a terrorist organization. Why would the driver be detained he was acting in self defense? Look at these lunatics trying to pull him out of his car. He hit no one. They were blocking street he tried to get through and they deliberately crowded his car. Fk these people. They’re insane and are the reason there is violence. You can’t surround cars and expect people to just let you attack them. ARREST THEM ALL!!
fake news He got exactly what he deserved What are the odds that this driver was influenced by Gov. DeSantis? (Words carry weight, and now it may not be just what Trump said that's responsible for violence). He didn't ram anybody. He was slowly traversing the crowd and the second they realized he wanted to get through they stormed the car and began blocking and hitting it. People have been rammed by cars at protests. This wasn't that.
Does ABC consider this news important? the governor of Florida just made this legal Maga / kkk is hate. They are breaking the law and terrorizing people. I have no sympathy for people who play in traffic when they get hurt. Look at the mongoloid roaches chasing after him with their phones out bahahahah. I guess they want to be added to the point total? Beautiful
He did not drive into anybody people moved away yet the chase after him like deranged pathetic zombies. Detained for freely traveling on a city street? Do explain Geez the cops were really nice to him. Did they offer him a coffee? If you're surrounded, your life is at risk. These people have been killing people. They do not have a right to stop you, they have no right to be in the street.
Attacked by terrorists assholes. Fixed it for you! Lol you call this BLM and Antifa scum protesters. Good one 😂 Why was the driver detained? How about the people who tried to beat the shit out of him for driving down a road WHICH IS WHAT ROADS ARE FOR! Footage of a closer side angle show the rioters kicking/attacking his car. Driving through because they were threatening him is 100% justified
Unbelievable. Terrorists attack a passing car and the cops arrest the driver. Of course it happened in California. Unfortunately, this driver should have killed a few more people! Why would anyone stop? Get out of there. NBCNEWS making people stupid one story at a time, where do you get your news🤤 It’s a Prius, in LA, being chased by a gas guzzling truck?
Stop calling these clowns protesters. Were they lawfully protesting in the streets? Meaning, did they have a permit to block traffic? Shouldn’t the people in the truck be charged with a crime And the police arrest the driver just to ensure we're all clear, this is clown world Lowercase person in Prius drives through crowd of uppercase people on the street. Lowercase person stopped by Thugs who smash up his car. Lowercase person detained by police.
The driver was detained?!?!? Using car driving through a crowd (or using knifes) is the same famous tactic used by terrorists' of ISIS. I’m disabled. If they surrounded my car, I would push through. They have NO business intimidating, menacing and damaging innocent people’s property, and potentially the people inside the vehicle. No.
Has blocking traffic ever successfully delivered a protester’s point to the driver of a car? “If they attack the car, save the radio!” - Randy (Valley Girl) Hey ABC, I’m feeling like the problem here is the mob, not the driver. This is a fail in your part. The roads are for driving not protesting. The driver did nothing wrong.
Remember Reginald Denny. It looks like the walking dead with even dumber zombies. Sorry ass savages!! This is the modern demoncrat party. Bring you sorry behinds to the south and pull that nonsense!! Terrorists ** If these crazed psychopath Biden supporters come to attack my car to try and drag me out, I'm speeding away as well and I'm not stopping.
wtf? the DRIVER got detained? Hope the driver is OK. What? He should sit there and let them swarm? It seems he was trying not to hit protestors as he made his escape. I would have stepped on it - remembering that truck driver dragged out and beaten in the LA riots. Detained for the “crime” of self-defense?
Terrorism of America Hey! That’s what our Trump Gov is encouraging here in Florida! That along with stand your ground against protesters if you feel your life is in danger by “protesters!” That’s not going to bode well here! Have you see the people he’s encouraging to do this? All politicking still! LA4TRUMP 🇺🇸
When being attacked by a mob, protect yourself and exterminate the mob. So he gets attacked by a mob and the police arrests him? Ok now I’m with the DefundThePolice movement He should have reversed and go knock a couple of the fools to ICU Rioters. Mob* The constitution is real What the hell is going on? ABC “News” YOU are the problem!!!!!
“Driver avoids being pulled from car and beaten by cautiously dodging attacking mob” Its a crowd of violent destructive Biden supporters who think its their constitutional right to harass and harm citizens going about their daily business. Some day you'll get it right. Wtf U arrested the person driving by a crowd, then getting attacked by a mob? How is this ok?
Driver told the cops “Where da hell were you guys!?” Very cool! The rioters must have blocked our view of the protesters mentioned in the caption.... he drives slowly, not to hurt someone. why did the police arrest him and not the blm thugs who hunted him? 'Protesters' my ass. Fucking violent pigs. I'd have done the same a the driver.
Not protesters. Terrorists or communist You choose Im not seeing anything illegal here. He disnt hit anyone until he was attacked by a bunch of savages that cut him off . *Through a group of fascist terrorists.* There. Fixed it for you. all thanks to Trump for telling the police to ramp the car through the protesters to 'protect' themselves.
Is this them ? Why did you cut the bit of footage showing 'protesters' truck rammingcthr car off the did, smashing in their window & assaulting driver through window? Idk about this one y’all. Y’all coulda let him make it. Unless he hit somebody before the video. Don’t look that bad to me. Protesters don't stand in the middle of the street and the locket. And he didn't bowl through them as you claim. That driver went slowly. Then you see them attacking him afterwards. You're wrong they're racist.
Charge the mf They are not protesters they are radical anarchists and rioters Awesome Watched the Prius plow through protesters 10 ft from me. Made no sense considering it was an intersection with a wide open street. Yet they chose to drive through the protesters. Correction: Through a group of terrorists.
Let your voice be heard!!!
