Two police officers were shot in Louisville last night after protests erupted following the decision to NOT charge the police officers who took the life of Breonna Taylor. The suspected gunman has been apprehended. More details inside…

Frustration. Anger. Desperation.

The people in Louisville are FED up with the way the city handled the case that involves the murder of Breonna Taylor by police officers. And folks took to the streets to air out their frustrations with the system.

Before the decision to NOT charge any of the police officers for the death of Breonna Taylor, the city of Louisville shut down all of its federal buildings and began boarding up buildings downtown. It was as if the city already knew was going to be announced and they were preparing for it:

 

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer announced a 9pm curfew for Jefferson County and the city was placed under a “state of emergency.” Then came the decision…

Former Louisville Metro Police Department detective Brett Hankinson was charged with three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment by the grand jury in the fatal shooting of 26-year-old EMT Breonna Taylor during a "botched raid" back in March. A $15,000 full cash bond was issued. The other two LMPD officers – Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly - were NOT charged. After the announcement, Attorney State General Daniel Cameron (R) addressed the decision in the case with claims that the result came from only looking at the facts.

The real question is were all of the facts ever presented to the grand jury. Hmph.

The cops were not even supposed to be at Breonna’s home since the department had already captured the person they were looking for that was listed in the search warrant. So there's that.

The charges brought against the former detective only pertain to him blindly firing shots through a door and window, with bullets entering an adjacent apartment where a pregnant woman, a man and a child were home, according to the state attorney general. The charges brought against him have nothing to do with Breonna Taylor's life being snatched away.

No charges were brought up, but the city settled with Breonna's family for $12 million. If the officer didn't do anything wrong pertaining to Breonna, why would the city agree to the largest settlement for police misconduct ever paid by Louisville? Hmph.

After the decision was announced, people took to the streets to protest the injustice of there clearly being TWO separate judicial systems:

 

White milita groups were also in the mix to "protect property":

Armed white militia groups are gathering in #Louisville to ‘protect property.’

We know they’re really there to harass, intimidate, brutalize, and even murder those protesting the injustice of not charging the police who murdered #BreonnaTaylor

As tensions boiled over into the night, things took a turn for the worst:

Two officers were reportedly shot and wounded Wednesday night – around 8:30pm - during the protests. According to interim Louisville Police Chief Robert Schroeder the officers are expected to recover. One is undergoing surgery.

The officers were shot after they started investigating reports of gunfire at an intersection where there was a large crowd gathered. Here’s a clip captured right after the shooting:

According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, one of the officers were shot in the abdomen and the other was hit in the thigh.

It didn’t take them long to apprehend the alleged suspect. Go figure. The Louisville Metro Police Department identified 26-year-old Larynzo Johnson as the alleged shooter:

According to reports, Larynzo Johnson is expected to face an arraignment hearing Friday morning.

Meanwhile, the FBI is involved and is asking for the public’s help in their investigation of the officers’ shooting. They’re asking anyone with photographs or videos to upload the files to its website.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear released a video, asking people to go home following the officers being shot:

While violence against law enforcement shouldn't happen, the judicial system is extremely f***** up and people are TIRED of the BS!  Going home all together is not going to happen. Not when people are well withint their constitutional right to protest and assembly.

No justice.  No peace.
