On Wednesday night, after a grand jury in Kentucky decided not to charge any police with Breonna Tylor's death, a group of protesters took to the streets and harassed a couple who were dining at a Florida restaurant.
According to the video, the couple was eating quietly when the protesters aggressively accosted them. When the man quickly decides to get rid of them and protect his wife, they threaten to knock him out.
Protesters have taken to the streets in Louisville, New York, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta, Denver, Dallas, Oaklan and other major cities to express their anger and disagreement with the decision not to prosecute any officers for the murder of 26-year-old Breonna Tylor.
A young Kentucky Black teen took to Instagram to post an impassioned speech which Candace Owens circulated to viral status. In it the teen questions why Breonna Taylor causes riots but the staggering Black on Black crime and death before that never did.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, a crowd of 60 protesters arrived in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday night. Initially, the protest had been free of conflict, however, the course of action changed dramatically when a car tried to break through a temporary roadblock and protesters began to stand in front of it and beat it with skateboards.
The group then went from restaurant to restaurant singing and shouting their slogans in front of the diners sitting outside. After this situation, several diners began to respond by initiating an increasingly heated verbal confrontation.
A woman who was having dinner with her husband was approached by this group of protestors. They began to sit at her table and insult them when the woman stood up and began shouting at them to leave her table. After the refusal, she and her husband began to film the situation and it is not known if they called the police at that moment.
The demonstrators were extremely aggressive and even threatened her, telling her that they were "going to shut up her old boyfriend." The main crowd, meanwhile, stood in the street in front of the rest of the people who were eating dinner, shouting "Get up, fight!
Diners have been the focus of protesters in several cities when they begin to shout, interrupting the evening by asking them to join the struggle. Monique Craft, 35, Kenneth McDowell, 33, and Shawn Green, 24 have been charged with misdemeanors for intimidating diners during the Labor Day weekend and are joining a long list of defendants across the country.
Seattle, meanwhile, witnessed several arrests Wednesday night after protesters launched fireworks in the East Precinct of the capitol, "almost hitting the officers in the process," according to police.
The SPD also reported that protesters had been throwing glass bottles at the officers. They have been charged with obstruction of justice, assaulting an officer and damaging private property.
