Louisville Braces For Violence Ahead of Breonna Taylor Jury Decision

more riots

Police in Louisville, Kentucky have declared a state of emergency and two federal buildings have temporarily shuttered ahead of the state attorney general’s announcement in the Breonna Taylor case, anticipating possible riots.

The emergency announcement was issued on Monday afternoon by interim Louisville Metropolitan Police Department Chief Robert Schroeder, citing the need for “appropriate level of staffing to provide for public safety services.” In practice this translates into all leave and vacation requests being placed on hold.

The US district courthouse in Louisville and the nearby US Citizenship and Immigration Services field office were also shuttered on Monday for the rest of the week, per orders from a federal judge.

Both federal and local authorities seem to be preparing for the impending announcement by Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron in the case of Breonna Taylor, an emergency medical technician killed in March.
