The protesters arrested and charged with a felony for protesting Breonna Taylor‘s death made sure residents in the neighborhood knew they came in peace.
The demonstration outside the Louisville home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron was completelynon-violent and peaceful, and protesters made sure to touch base with neighbors beforehand … according to Jeanette Thomas, who lives on Cameron’s block.
Jeanette says the protesters assured neighbors they were only there to demand justice for Breonna and weren’t there to start trouble … and they peacefully protested by chanting Taylor’s name, and remained calm even when police started arresting them.
As we reported … the 87 people arrested and booked on a felony charge of intimidating a participant in a legal process — that participant being AG Cameron — included ‘RHOA’ star Porsha Williams, ‘L&HH’ star Yandy Smith, NFL player Kenny Stills and activist Tamika Mallory. Opinion — frickin’ ridiculous … that citizens of a State are not allowed to stage a protest against an elected official.
Yandy and Tamika told us they find it ironic they now how have a felony charge to fight, while the police officers who killed Breonna still roam free.

Jeanette says the protesters told her they knew they would be arrested and vowed not to resist … and explains why residents weren’t scared in the slightest.
And, get this … Jeanette tells us protesters even showed concern for the safety of her and her daughter as police started to move in, and says demonstrators sent her flowers the next day as a thank you for letting them park in her driveway.
