Rappers YBN Cordae and Trae Tha Truth were among 87 people arrested on Tuesday afternoon (July 14) for protesting outside the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron demanding justice in the police-caused killing of Breonna Taylor.
"The protestors chose to occupy the front yard of a home owned by the Kentucky Attorney General and continuously chant towards he and his neighbors. At his request, they were trespassed from the property," read a statement from a spokesperson for the Louisville Police Department. "All were given the opportunity to leave, were told that remaining on the property would be unlawful, and chose not to leave."
According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, Cordae (born Cordae Amari Dunston), Truth (born Frazier Othel Thompson III) and their fellow activists were demanding that Republican Cameron, the state’s first black attorney general, charge the three police officers who murdered 26-year-old ER tech Taylor inside her home on March 13, when plainclothes officers using a no-knock warrant broke down her door and unloaded more than 20 rounds into the apartment after Taylor's boyfriend fired once out of fear that intruders were breaking in; Taylor was shot eight times.
