Justice For Breonna Taylor! Yandy Smith, Tamika D. Mallory & Porsha Williams Face Felony Charges After Peaceful Protest 

As Black Lives Matter protests continue, reality stars Porsha Williams and Yandy Smith along with activist Tamika D. Mallory were among many who were arrested at a peaceful protest in Lousiville, Kentucky to demand justice for Breonna Taylor.

 

 

Breonna murdered in the comfort of her own home back in March after police officers entered the wrong home during an investigation, failed to properly announce themselves, and ultimately killed her as she slept. The police officers involved in the shooting have still not been charged. Activist Tamika D. Mallory organized the peaceful protest in hopes of having the officers arrested and held responsible for killing the young EMT.

 

Protestors gathered in front of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s home to demand he arrest and charge the officers. Things took a major turn after officers asked everyone to move down the street and off the property.

It’s not easy to be a public figure and to also be on the front lines fighting for freedom. When you make the decision to be a freedom fighter, you do so knowing that your decision will cost you friendships, partnerships, and business opportunities. This morning I just want to take a moment to salute these two soldiers @yandysmith and @porsha4real for being fearless and unapologetic about demanding justice and freedom for our people. . . “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.” ~ Assata Shakur @untilfreedom #untilfreedom #justiceforbreonnataylor #breonnataylor #sayhername

Those who remained on the lawn were arrested and the ones who followed the officer’s orders were cited.

 

Yandy, Porsha, and Tamika have since been released. They were detained and booked for intimidating a participant in a legal process, criminal trespass in the 3rd degree, and disorderly conduct in the 2nd degree, which are felony charges.

 

“Breonna Taylor’s death awoke the mother prowess in me, hugging her mother awoke the fighter in me. I won’t stop! YOUR FELONY CHARGES WON’T INTIMIDATE ME!,” wrote Yandy in an Instagram post.  She also says, “I would die for my children to have the same liberties my ancestors were beaten, hung, water hosed and tortured for!”

Today is my son’s birthday. It’s ironic that the hours I was in labor (27) prior to having him, 8 years later I spent in jail and outside the jail fighting for his life. BREONNA TAYLOR’S death awoke the mother prowess in me, hugging her mother awoke the fighter in me. I won’t stop! YOUR FELONY CHARGES WONT INTIMIDATE ME! Please know not only would I go to jail I would die for my children to have the same liberties my ancestors were beaten, hung, water hosed and tortured for! Today I will celebrate my baby and I’m thankful I made it out of jail to do so, but don’t think for a moment I’ve forgotten the mission. Love is love 💕 . . 📸 @ebranchphotography Thank you @xburrell41 (FYI I was scream NO JUSTICE NO PEACE AS THIS BLACK MAN ARRESTED ME FROM THE SAME DEPARTMENT THAT KILLED A BLACK WOMEN WHERE THERE HAVE BEEN NO ARREST. HOW DO YOU SLEEP? The irony)
