Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills was one of 87 people arrested on Tuesday outside the home of the Kentucky Attorney General, Daniel Cameron, after protesting against the death of Breonna Taylor.

Eighty-seven people are facing a felony charge of intimidating a participant in a legal process, police said. According to the Journal, Stills was part of a group organized by Until Freedom, a social justice organization, that marched to the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron. Those protesters stood and chanted on Cameron's lawn, and "at (Cameron's) request, they were trespassed from the property", LMPD spokesman Lamont Washington said in a statement Tuesday evening.

Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills is one of the most vocal players in the National Football League when it comes to social justice issues.

One of the three officers who fired their weapons the night of the Taylor killing has been fired, but none have been criminally charged.

"WE AINT HERE TRYING TO BE CUTE WE IN KENTUCKY TO MAKE SURE YALL KNOW BREONNA TAYLOR's LIFE MATTERED", she wrote via Instagram, alongside a snap with Mallory and Williams. Washington noted all protesters were given the opportunity to leave before being arrested.

He was elected Seoul mayor in 2011, upsetting his conservative opponent as an independent candidate backed by opposition liberals. A memorial altar will be set up in front of the City Hall in central Seoul Friday afternoon to allow citizens to mourn his death.

No drugs were found in the house.

The shooting set off weeks of protests, policy changes and a call for the officers who shot Taylor to be criminally charged.

One of three officers involved was sacked last month, and the two other officers have been placed on administrative leave.

Cameron said the protest won't bring justice and "only serves to further division and tension within our community". "The only objective these charges serve is to potentially chill the free speech rights of protesters".
