Protesters, Go-Go Band Head to Mitch McConnell’s Home for ‘Wake Up’ Call

A group of about 100 protesters in Washington, D.C., headed to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY)’s home early Thursday morning for a “wake up call,” according to video posted on social media.

They carried a sign that said, “We can’t sleep so neither should Mitch” and “Our Future Our Justice,” Washingtonian reporter Jane Recker reported.

McConnell is the senior senator for Kentucky, where the grand jury decision in the police officer-involved shooting of Breonna Taylor, 26, was announced on Wednesday.

According to Recker, police were already in front of McConnell’s residence and blocked off the street, anticipating the protesters.

After the grand jury indicted one officer involved in the March raid that resulted in Taylor’s death with three counts of wanton endangerment, but no murder charges, violent protests began not only in Kentucky, but all over the country. Two police officers were shot in Louisville, Kentucky, where the decision was announced.

Last night in Washington, D.C., hundreds of protesters took to the streets, breaking windows on businesses, overturning newspaper stands, and scuffling with police.
