Breonna Taylor marches turn violent: LAPD patrol car runs over two protesters | Daily Mail Online

Demonstrations to commemorate the first anniversary of Breonna Taylor’s death have turned violent as protesters clashed with cops and members of the public at marches across the country.  Hundreds of activists took to the streets in Los Angeles for a march on Saturday night, where two demonstrators were seen slamming a squad car. Vision shared on social media shows the men beating the hood of the LAPD vehicle as it stopped on a road in Hollywood with its siren blaring. The cop car then slowly started to move with the men still smashing the hood, before it abruptly accelerated throwing the men onto the road. ‘LAPD just ran over two protesters at the Hollywood Breonna Taylor march,’ one activist stated beneath a video of the incident. Other videos showed police clad in riot gear as they stood off against protesters. Several businesses in the Hollywood area were also reportedly vandalized.Meanwhile, in Louisville, Kentucky – the city where Taylor was shot dead during a botched police raid on her home on March 13, 2020 –  armed demonstrators blocked roads prompting police to declare an unlawful assembly.  ‘Arrests will be made to those that refuse to disperse,’ the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department wrote on Twitter at 9.30pm local time.It is currently unclear whether anyone has been taken into custody
