After the new, partly violent protests in Louisville, Kentuckyine, the police have taken 127 people into custody.

As a spokeswoman said, one of the arrested is accused of deliberately injuring two police officers with a fatal weapon and of having deliberately endangered 14 other police officers.

According to local media, there are also two journalists among those arrested.

The protests were triggered by the decision of a grand jury in the case of the black Breonna Taylor, who was killed in a police operation.

The jury decided not to charge any of the officers involved in the fatal police operation.

One of the officers was only charged because bullets from his gun went into a neighboring apartment.

He is therefore accused of negligent endangering the lives of others.

The other two police officers defended themselves.

According to police, Taylor's friend who was with her was the first to shoot and injure an officer.


This decision caused the new unrest - despite a curfew imposed for the evening and night hours.

Two police officers were shot injured.

Police chief Robert Schroeder announced that the two police officers who were shot will recover from their injuries.

One of them has already left the hospital.

His colleague had to undergo an operation because of abdominal injuries.

Protests for 119 days in a row

The grand jury's decision criticized the Taylor family attorney, Lonita Baker, as "insulting and egregious".

Police officers cannot defend themselves by endangering bystanders.
