Two police officers were shot Wednesday night in Louisville, Kentucky as protesters gathered in a number of cities across the country following a grand jury decision related to the death of Breonna Taylor. None of the police officers involved was criminally charged in Taylor's death. Still, former officer Brett Hankison was indicted on three counts of "wanton endangerment" in regard to Taylor's neighbors on the night the 26-year-old was killed.
Predictably, violence broke out across the United States following the announcement of the grand jury's decision.
The following three videos from Los Angeles and Louisville show the mayhem and extreme danger police are facing from violent thugs who target cops with bullets, Molotov cocktails, and obscenities while the officers show determined restraint.
