A U-Haul filled with everything needed for a flash mob protest just happened to be parked in a position for protestors to show up and grab the goods and hit the streets after it was announced officers wouldn’t be indicted for Breonna Taylor’s death. Daily Caller reporter Shelby Talcott was recording as protestors grabbed signs, shields, water and made their way onto the streets.
“I’m not sure how people knew what it contained,” Talcott tweeted.

Any hope for this to be a peaceful protest of the Breonna Taylor news was short lived as protestors wasted no time destroying Louisville businesses. Even a bus driver doing his job for the citizens was being harassed by a protestor, according to Talcott, who says “one woman opened up the gas tank but wasn’t able to get the cap off” of the bus.
Buildings are being targeted as are people filming. The situation is getting more tense. With the first business, a man quickly walked inside and locked the door as someone confronted him: pic.twitter.com/J8O6dPvei4
