Not Fucking Around Coalition comes to Louisville: Demands faster investigation into Breonna Taylor’s death

Hundreds of members of the Black militia, the Not Fucking Around Coalition, came to Louisville on Saturday to demand a speedier investigation of the fatal police shooting of Breonna Taylor.

The Black militia based in Atlanta also joined protesters to demand more transparency in the investigation. The militia got into formation in Baxter Park and marched down Broadway to Louisville Metro Hall. In response to the NFAC coming to Louisville, members of the right-wing “Three Percenter” militia also came to the area around Louisville Metro Hall. Police separated the groups on Fifth Street.
