Louisville Police Declare State Of Emergency, Ahead Of Breonna Taylor Announcement
Fox News is reporting that the Louisville Metro Police Department is setting up barricades in the downtown area and restricting some vehicle traffic out of concern that civil unrest could occur after Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron regarding the investigation into Breonna Taylor’s death.
However, police officials expect the situation to escalate after the expected announcement and declared a state of emergency Monday. According to reports the federal courthouse, as well as offices in the area were boarded up on Sunday in anticipation of the decision.
The Attorney General has never given a public timeline for his decision. He is expected to present his findings to a grand jury that will decide whether to criminally indict the three police officers involved in Taylor’s death.
