A Kentucky lawmaker who proposed a statewide law to end “no-knock” search warrants was arrested during protests in Louisville on Thursday night, CBS affiliate WLKY confirmed. State Representative Attica Scott, who pre-filed legislation for Breonna’s Law in August, was taken into custody near a church that was considered a sanctuary for protesters.
More than 100 people took to the streets of Louisville on Thursday, including Taylor’s mother Tamika Palmer, a day after a grand jury chose not to indict police officers in the death of Breonna Taylor. Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician, was killed by police during a drug raid on her home in March.
The article goes on to state the following:
In June, the city of Louisville passed a ban on “no-knock” warrants like the one that police had obtained before entering Taylor’s home. Dubbed Breonna’s Law, the legislation also requires police to wear body cameras while executing search warrants. Scott’s legislation similarly calls for police to wear body cameras and also requires police to undergo alcohol and drug screenings following deadly incidents. If enacted, it would apply to the entire state of Kentucky.
