LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Protests are continuing in Lexington for the fifth straight night. The protests are in the wake of the recent deaths of George Floyd in Minneapolis and Breonna Taylor in Louisville.
This is a language warning, but from here on out, assume there may be curse words popping up here and there. People are very passionate. #protests2020 @LEX18News pic.twitter.com/hXW4IbVBvq— Mike Valente (@ValenteLEX18) June 3, 2020
On Monday night, police officers kneeled and prayed with protesters. However, an arrest of a protester was made just hours later. As a result, the protesters tonight are accusing police officers of being disingenuous in committing to reform.
