RHOA’s Porsha Williams is facing five years on a felony charge for participating in a Louisville, Kentucky protest against the police officers who killed Breonna Taylor according to the source The Grio.
The Atlanta reality star was among 87 protesters that were arrested outside the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron. In a post that has since been deleted, Porsha was shocked at the charges for the protesters while the trial murder of Breonna Taylor was moving at such a slow pace. Per Porsha:
“Wow @danieljaycameron you really took the time to upgrade 1 out of 3 of our charges to FELONY?? This is disgusting …. meanwhile not one peep about this botched investigation of Breonna Taylors MURDER!!!”
“Plus not one arrest of the cops …. instead you celebrate with your bride and give them Active desk duty to keep these killers protected. You can’t possibly think this is ok! Sure create the possibility for peaceful protesters to get locked up for 1-5 year but absolutely no accountability for your officers?!!”
“This is sad that this is the world we live in!! It’s simple don’t kill us as we sleep in our homes, don’t kill us for sleeping in our car, don’t kill us from walking to a store, and don’t Kill our spirits and further oppress us when we stand up to say you are Wrong!!! #JusticeForall #JusticeforBreonnaTaylor”
Porsha has been a vocal activist against police brutality, focusing on Breonna Taylor and other women of color as seen in her Instagram Page:
Porsha has been fighting the good fight and I’m also shocked at the charges and how quickly they escalated. A statement from the attorney general has been released, stating:
“From the beginning, our office has set out to do its job, to fully investigate the events surrounding the death of Ms. Breonna Taylor. We continue with a thorough and fair investigation, and today’s events will not alter our pursuit of the truth,” Cameron said.
“Justice is not achieved by trespassing on private property, and it’s not achieved through escalation. It’s achieved by examining the facts in an impartial and unbiased manner. That is exactly what we are doing and will continue to do in this investigation.”
According to TMZ, Jefferson County Attorney Mike O’Connell is DROPPING the felony charges for all 87 people, including Porsha.
Thoughts on the charges? Are you surprised at how quickly they escalated?
