BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Protesters took to the streets of Baltimore Thursday night, one day after a Kentucky grand jury declined to bring charges against three police officers in the death of Breonna Taylor.

The group marched downtown from the Baltimore City Police Headquarters before ending up at City Hall. Taylor’s name echoed down the streets as a police helicopter hovered overhead.

“We(‘re) just here to take a stand,” protester Rico Crenshaw said.

The group, most of whom were dressed in all black, blocked traffic as they called for police reform.

“At first, I didn’t really know how to feel and then it turned into anger,” protester Ebony Johnson said.

Some of those at Thursday night’s demonstration said they won’t stop speaking out until justice is served.

“We are going to keep on protesting until we get justice everywhere,” Crenshaw said.

Baltimore is the latest city to see protests following the grand jury’s decision; demonstrations have happened nationwide Wednesday and Thursday. Two police officers were shot in Louisville Wednesday night following the announcement.

While none of the officers were charged in Taylor’s death, one was indicted for endangering neighbors in relation to shooting into her neighbor’s apartment, CBS News reports.

    Because protesting in a city that is not where the event actually happened really makes a difference. These people need to get a grip.

    These are the stupidest people on the planet.

    Beanna Tayler is dead because of her boyfriend, you want to blame someone you need to look

    no further than him. He shot at police, I guess you all think they should have got back in their

    squad cars and went back to the station? Yup the stupidest!

    Not to mention 10 women have been killed on the streets of Baltimore THIS month alone.

    Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones!

      BLM will never rally and demand justice for the murders that happen in the inner cities , even when it involves a child. The most obvious factor to me seems to be that black people will never blame other black people for their problems. If they pointed fingers at people within their “family’, that would mean that they take the blame themselves and would be responsible for a solution. It’s so much easier to lay the blame on others and pull the race card when all else fails. The crime in the inner cities is a never ending cycle of irresponsibility and ignorance and will continue spiral out of control with no end in site until someone steps up and tells it like it is…..

    These people are too stupid to realize the Democrat media lied to them. Not one of these morons was in the court room to hear the charges yet they all know what happened. This isn’t about BLM. It’s about Democrat’s deflecting from their failed policies at election time using the police as a scapegoat. They did the same thing near the 2016 election, but this time they upped their game to defund the police. The only one in the crowd that looks like they shower regularly is the reporter Kelsey. These people have a better chance at the city removing the 30lb rats then then changing a jury’s verdict in this case.
