A co-founder of a group called Until Freedom, Linda Sarsour, said they went to Cameron’s home to show him they are serious in their demands.

“We will not allow him to continue to delay this process in hopes that the protesters will go away, in hopes that the national attention on Breonna Taylor will go away. We believe that our action today will send a pressure point to the administration that they have to move quickly and that if they don’t move quickly, we will come with triple and quadruple the number of people we will have today,” Sarsour said.

The Grassroots Law Project said they are on hand to provide legal observers who will record the demonstration, monitor for civil rights violations and help protect protesters.

Cameron’s office has been investigating the circumstances surrounding the killing of the 26-year-old on March 13, but has yet to provide a timeline on when the case will be complete.

Det. Brett Hankison, one of three officers involved in the raid on Taylor’s home, was fired for misconduct that night. The other two, Sgt. Jon Mattingly and Det. Myles Cosgrove, were placed on administrative reassignment following the raid.

Since her death, Louisville has banned no-knock warrants and legislation is being drafted to ban them statewide.
