Louisville police said protesters, who have been marching against Breonna Taylor’s death for more than 70 days, can no longer use public roads

The Louisville Metro Police Department said Sunday that protesters would no longer be allowed to march on public streets, and must stick to the sidewalks. 

A police spokesperson said the restrictions were in response to increasingly “aggressive behavior” by protesters over the past week. 

Protests have taken place in the Kentucky city every night for more than 70 days, in response to the police killing of Breonna Taylor in her home.

A handful of people were taken into custody for disorderly conduct and obstructing the roadway Sunday night after the new restrictions went into place.

Protesters said the police are trying to intimidate them into stopping their demonstrations, but said they would not stop until the three officers involved in Taylor’s death are charged.
