An amazing story of what non-violence is all about came out of a protest in Louisville, Kentucky over the weekend.

During a protest over the death of Breonna Taylor something very important and touching happened.

Breonna Taylor was the black woman who was shot multiple times by police after they got the wrong address for a no-knock drug warrant.  They barged in, Breonna’s boyfriend used his 2nd amendment right to fire a gun in the air as a warning shot not knowing it was cops breaking in to their apartment.

Breonna, an emergency room technician, died after being shot multiple times by the police.

Well… at a protest over that incident over the weekend a Louisville cop got separated from his group.  There he was, alone with his knight stick against an angry mob.  The mob very well could have turned ugly and it could have been a terrible moment.  But what happened is a testament to the idea of peaceful change that is the true path out of this situation.

Here’s what happened:  A bunch of protesters created a human line around the officer to protect him from any violence that may happen.  It was a dicey situation, but calmed by some people doing the right thing… and that’s why they’re on the Good News No Sweat News.
