Porsha Williams of Real Housewives of Atlanta, together with 87 other protesters, were arrested for participating in a Breonna Taylor protest outside the house of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
The news about Floyd's death raised lots of other concerns about police brutality, including the murder of Breonna Taylor.
March 13, the Louisville Metro Police were in for a late-night raid. They are looking for someone who got detained earlier that day. As soon as they found the supposed to be the person's address, they barged in and shot the suspected person to death.
However, the person they have shot is not the culprit. They've got the wrong address and the wrong person. They have killed the African-American emergency medical technician and aspiring nurse Breonna Taylor. She was lying on her bed when the police shot her eight times.
The case about the aspiring nurse did not end up the same way as Floyd's case. On her 27th birthday, protests for her death arise, and her name was all over the internet, calling for justice she never had.
On Tuesday morning before the protest in Louisville, Kentucky, Porsha Williams shared that she will be participating in a peaceful demonstration on her Instagram post.
In the front yard of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, Williams and 87 other protesters called for a fair and just decision.
Later on, the Metro Police arrived and arrested them for several charges. They were charged with Class D felony, Intimidating a Participant in a Legal Process, Class B misdemeanor, Criminal Trespass 3rd degree, and 2nd degree, Disorderly Conduct. According to the Police, the protesters were given a chance to leave peacefully, but they refused.
Williams soon to be husband Dennis McKinley shared with his Instagram posts about the arrest of her and other protesters. Lauren, her sister, also shared a video of the arrest, and she wrote on her post, "She has always been fearless. You mess with her people, you mess with her."

It is not the first time when the celebrity Porsha joined a protest. In June, she and her fiance participated at the Atlanta demonstration. They shared their experience of being dispersed with tear gas.
