Description

We speak with Kentucky state Representative Attica Scott, a Democrat who serves on the House Education Committee, about the Breonna Taylor case and her own arrest in September during a protest in Louisville. She now faces charges of first-degree rioting, failure to disperse and unlawful assembly, along with her daughter and 22 others. “We are determined to get justice for Breonna Taylor,” says Scott. “No law enforcement body is going to stop us from exercising our First Amendment rights.” Rep. Scott also discusses the controversial role of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron in the case, who is a protégé of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
