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.

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.

Protesters also said they are trying to raise money to get 19-year-old Kaulbert Wilson, the protester arrested on Monday night, out of jail.
