LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — When Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announces a decision about the Louisville police officers involved in the fatal raid at Breonna Taylor's home, at least one group plans to protest in Lexington.

Kenzie Green is a member of LPD Accountability. Green says she is not sure what to expect.

"What we do know is a charge like wanton endangerment is not going to fly," claims Green.

When a decision is released, Green and others plan to meet downtown at 7 p.m. at the Fayette County courthouses to begin their march.

LPD Accountability wants a list of changes to the Lexington Police Department including a private citizens review board and a permanent ban on "no-knock" warrants.

While past protests this summer turned violent, Green hopes future events are peaceful.

"Obviously, you can't account for what every single person does. There are always going to be a few in the group who are out to be reckless, but don't let that be a face for the whole movement," said Green.
