Louisville anti-racism protesters defy curfew

[NFA] Demonstrators decried a grand jury decision not to charge three officers for killing Breonna Taylor, marching through the streets of Louisville despite a curfew.

This report produced by Zachary Goelman.

Activists in Louisville defied a citywide curfew Thursday (September 24) night protesting a grand jury's decision not charge three police officers with the death of a 26-year-old African-American paramedic named Breonna Taylor.

Taylor's case became a rallying cry for the police-reform movement.

Earlier on Thursday, Taylor's mother Tamika Palmer joined demonstrators at a memorial for her daughter in Louisville.

Taylor was shot and killed in a botched police raid at her apartment in March.

Three plainclothes cops broke down her door, executing what's known as a "no-knock" warrant, in search of drugs.

Taylor's boyfriend claims he believed the cops were intruders, and fired a gun at them.

The police returned fire, shooting Taylor five times.

A grand jury on Wendesday (September 22) found the cops' use of force was justified.

Two of the officers involved have been placed on administrative duties.

A third was dismissed and charged Wednesday with wanton endangerment after investigators said bullets he fired went through a wall into a neighboring apartment.

Residents here say the decision denies Breonna justice.

"I expected them to really get locked up.

I really thought they were going to get locked up." "Because it was only one officer that got charged.

And they came as a group.

They came together.." Louisville has agreed to pay $12 million to Taylor’s family to settle a wrongful-death lawsuit.

As a curfew went into effect after dark here and police declared an unlawful assembly, a group of 200 to 300 protesters who had marched through the city for hours retreated to the grounds of the First Unitarian Church, which opened its doors to the activists.

"The Unitarian Church is a believer in social justice and equality.

And we work hard, we work, it's just a part of our mission and principals to help people who need help." Taylor's death and the grand jury decision sparked nationwide condemnation.

On Thursday night protesters also took to the streets in St.

Louis, in Seattle, and in Sacramento.

Demonstrators rallied in New York City, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Rochester and in Philadelphia.

Organizers are preparing for more demonstrations Friday night.

Trump strategy data leak targets Joe Biden

Last night Channel 4 News revealed Donald Trump's strategy to deter millions of Black Americans from voting for Hillary Clinton. Tonight, how white voters are being targeted to be terrified of Joe Biden. The airwaves and internet here are constantly running Trump campaign ads full of fear and loathing. Images of riots and burning are the flip side to months of anti-racist protest. Tonight's revelations come from a huge data leak from Trump's 2016 campaign obtained by our investigations unit - which contains detailed information on almost 200 million Americans. We meet the voters the Trump campaign targeted for persuasion. These targets are overwhelmingly white - and the campaign knew exactly which issues they cared about. Now the very same voters are being targeted again - with messages of division and fear. Report by Browna.
