Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills was one of dozens of protesters arrested at the home of Kentucky’s attorney general, where they were calling for criminal charges against the three police officers who shot and killed Breonna Taylor.
Only one of the three officers involved in Taylor’s killing, Brett Hankinson, has been fired. The other two are still Louisville police and Hankinson has not been charged with any crime.
Stills and the other protesters arrested, including several famous activists and reality TV stars, are facing a felony charge, intimidating a participant in a legal process. They were sitting on the lawn of Daniel Cameron, the Kentucky attorney general.
Cameron, a Republican, called the Louisville cops on the protesters and said they were trespassing. “Justice is not achieved by trespassing on private property, and it’s not achieved through escalation,” he later whined to the Louisville Courier-Journal, which reported on the arrests.
Stills was one of the few NFL players to kneel during the national anthem last season, and was booked wearing a “BREONNA TAYLOR’S KILLERS ARE STILL POLICE” shirt.
Taylor was shot and killed by police who raided her home while she was sleeping; the person they were actually seeking had already been arrested that night.
