BLM Protesters Form “Front Line” with Riot Shields Before Clashing with Police


The situation in Louisville is getting out of control….

And fast!

According to multiple posts on social media, BLM protesters have created a "front line" with riot shields.

This was before they clashed with the police.


None of the officers in Louisville have been charged for the death of Breonna Taylor.

Now, BLM activists are taking to the streets.

See the fotoage below:

Multiple social media reports indicate that these "riot shields" were unloaded from an "Antifa U-haul truck."

Famed journalist Jack Posobiec is one of those confirming this story:

Protesters have taken to the streets of Lousville chanting:

No lives matter until black lives matter!

If this is their chant, no wonder they don't agree with the phrase "All Lives Matter."

It is clear that the protesters do not believe that "All Lives Matter" if this is the mantra that they are shouting in the streets.

The BLM crowds in Louisville are furious with the decision.

Now, Fox News is reporting that Louisville is bracing for violence and unrest:

After a Kentucky grand jury opted to indict only one of the three Louisville police officers in the raid that led to Breonna Taylor's death earlier this year, the city braced for backlash.

Former Sgt. Brett Hankison was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment for firing rounds during the raid that went into neighboring apartments, but not in the death of Taylor.

The attorney for Taylor's family, Ben Crump, tweeted that the decision was "outrageous and offensive."

Taylor, a 26-year-old Black emergency medical worker, was shot five times by officers who entered her home using a no-knock warrant during a drug investigation March 13. The warrant was connected with someone who did not live there, and no drugs were found during the search. The use of no-knock warrants is now banned in the city.

On Wednesday afternoon, Kentucky's largest city prepared for potential civil unrest over the grand jury report, which was presented to a judge shortly before 1:30 p.m ET.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer declared a state of emergency and announced a 72-hour curfew starting at 9 p.m.

The Louisville Metro Police Department announced it was putting barricades around the downtown perimeter where protests have been concentrated.

NBC News reporter Blayne Alexander posted videos online of National Guard vehicles driving into downtown Louisville.

Footage below shows that the National Guard is already in Louisville.

However, despite the unfolding unrest, it doesn't appear that the National Guard has been activated.

All of the initial classes appear to be happening with state and local police.

The situation is rapidly developing.

Be sure to continue checking back for more updates throughout the night.
