LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Protests against police brutality are continuing for the sixth night in a row in Lexington. The protests are in the wake of the recent deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

Community organizers say they will be protesting in Lexington every night at 8 p.m. until their demands of Lexington police are met. They are demanding more accountability from the department and a better way to track “problematic officers,” amongst other demands.
