Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills was among a group of individuals, who were arrested in Kentucky on Tuesday night. Stills and 86 other people elected to go to the lawn of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron to demand justice.
The group protested the shooting death of Breonna Taylor. These individuals claim that her death was a murder.
The authorities had a no-knock warrant and entered into her apartment on March 13, 2020. Kenneth Walker fired at the officers, because he thought they were intruders.
This caused the officers to fire back, striking Taylor. She was hit eight times and succumbed to her injuries.
The authorities were investigating Jamarcus Glover and Adrian Walker, who they alleged were selling controlled substances from a drug house. There was no drugs found at Taylor’s apartment.
The group called Until Freedom called for direct action on Tuesday, July 14th. Their website said “time to escalate.”
“It has been 116+ days since Breonna Taylor has been murdered by the Louisville Police Department and no one has been held accountable,” their website says. “We must now escalate our actions so that the powers that be know, we will not stop until we get justice for Breonna and her family.”
The 28-year-old Stills is now facing felony charges after being involved in the protests. He was booked into jail right before midnight after being arrested in the afternoon. Stills, according to the Courier Journal, marched with the group to the home of Daniel Cameron, the Attorney General, investigating the Taylor incident.
Stills is facing a intimidating a participant in the legal process, a felony, along with additional charges of disorderly conduct and criminal trespass. He was released on Wednesday morning.
The Courier Journal says that his arrest citation states, “he was on private property with no lawful purpose and refused to leave. The property owner is the lead prosecutor in an ongoing criminal investigation,” the citation said. It also said. “Still was on [the] property to intimidate [the] prosecutor.”
Stills called it “Good Trouble” on Twitter. But the NFL may not think it’s good trouble, as he will likely be disciplined from the league for his actions.
“Arrested for peacefully protesting,” Stills wrote on Twitter. “While Breonnas Taylor’s murderers are still out on the street,” he said on Twitter.
