  • Peaceful demonstrators marched to Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron's house on Saturday, marking the 150th day of protests for Breonna Taylor, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

  • Around 100 protesters rallied without any arrests, despite an encounter with officers in riot gear.

  • "The more that comes out with the case, the more that we see that he's been untruthful about a lot of things," protest organizer, Delaney Haley, told the Courier-Journal.  "So day 150, we're still out here, and we're still seeking full transparency, and we're not going to let up until we get that."

Demonstrators rallied in front of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron's house on Saturday, marking 150 days of protests in Louisville for Breonna Taylor, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

Nearly 100 protesters marched to Cameron's home in a reaction to his managing of Taylor's case. Authorities responded in riot gear, but no arrests were made, according to the outlet.

"The more that comes out with the case, the more that we see that he's been untruthful about a lot of things," protest organizer, Delaney Haley, told the Courier-Journal.  "So day 150, we're still out here, and we're still seeking full transparency, and we're not going to let up until we get that."

The Courier-Journal's Andre LaVista Toran was at the scene documenting the confrontation between law enforcement and demonstrators. According to the outlet, after having an exchange with protesters to de-escalate the situation, officers "backed away."

In one of the prior attempts to protest at Cameron's home, 87 protesters who rallied in his front yard were arrested in July, local news outlet WDRB reported at the time

Saturday's protest came just over a month after Cameron's announcement on September 23 that none of the officers involved in the death of Taylor face charges for actually killing her. Only one of the three officers, Brett Hankinson, was indicted by a grand jury on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment for shooting into a neighbor's apartment.

Cameron claimed that the grand jury concurred with this decision, however, an unidentified juror revealed that the option to indict anyone for homicide was not on the table. 

"The grand jury didn't agree that certain actions were justified," the anonymous juror said. "The grand jury was not given the opportunity to deliberate on those [other] charges and deliberated only on what was presented to them."

Taylor was a 26-year-old emergency medical technician who was fatally shot by Louisville police during a botched no-knock narcotics raid in March. Her death sparked a surge of activism against police brutality and a call for the officers involved to be held accountable.
