Share this:

Our friends on the ground have provided a chilling look at the city of Louisville as it prepares for Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron to announce potential charges against the police officers at the center of the Breonna Taylor case.

Louisville was placed under a state of emergency Tuesday as city officials closed down a more than 25-block perimeter to traffic. Most city administrative buildings and other businesses were boarded up in anticipation of the decision.

Protests in Louisville related to Taylor’s death in March have been taking place for more than 100 consecutive days.

The announcement is scheduled to take place around 1:30 pm Eastern.
