Many are demanding the Attorney General take action against the three officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death. He has refused to bring charges despite the growing outrage.

Several celebrities and activists were arrested Tuesday afternoon protesting the police officers who killed Breonna Taylor, including “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams and “Love & Hip Hop” star Yandy Smith. Earlier in the day, Williams’ fiancé, Dennis McKinley, posted a flyer on social media for a peaceful protest taking place at the home of Louisville, Kentucky attorney general Daniel Cameron. The 39-year-old Williams’ sister Lauren later shared footage of the reality star being escorted away in handcuffs. Smith, 38, also took to Instagram before her arrest, captioning her video of the protest, “#breonnataylor can’t go home, so we invited ourselves to your house attorney general @danieljaycameron Just like the cops did when they murdered her. #sayhername We don’t plan on letting up until you arrest the cops.” The post was later updated to inform fans that Smith, Williams, rapper-activists Trae tha Truth and Mysonne, as well as “over 100” others, were arrested. Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman, was killed March 13 during a botched police raid at her home in Louisville. Last month, Beyoncé demanded in a public letter to Cameron that the officers involved be prosecuted. Cameron responded at a press conference, claiming that he wouldn’t be swayed by her or any other celebrity, saying, “An investigation of this magnitude, when done correctly, requires time and patience.” ℹ️ @pagesix
Reports say Daniel Cameron called the police to have the protestors arrested and removed from his property.
Porsha was charged with:
- felony intimidating a participant in a legal process
- disorderly conduct in the second degree,
- criminal trespassing.
The court records show Porsha has not been granted a bond for any of her charges, which usually means you can’t be released. The official records show the RHOA star is still behind bars at the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections.
Porsha is scheduled to appear for an arraignment tomorrow where her bond will most likely be set.
On the 13th March, 2020, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot by the Louisville Metro Police Department. Three plain-clothed officers executed a no-knock search warrant on her apartment in Kentucky.
As the officers broke into her apartment, Breonna’s boyfriend Kenneth Walker exchanged gunfire with officers believing they were intruders.
The police officers fired over twenty shots and eight hit Breonna. The warrant was in relation to an investigation into two men, Jamarcus Glover and Adrian Walker, suspected of selling drugs. Jamarcus was an ex-boyfriend of Breonna, who had no contact with Breonna.
The three officers involved, Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove, have yet to be fired or face any consequences.
