EUGENE, Ore.-- Around 100 protesters marched through the streets of downtown Eugene, upset about a grand jury's decision not to indict three officers allegedly involved in Breonna Taylor's death.
In the rain, they started at the federal court house chanting Taylor's name and demanding justice. Protesters blocked the intersection at East 8th Avenue and Coburg Road, while some drivers honked their horns in support. Demonstrators tell KEZI they had hope there would be a different outcome to the grand jury's decision, but they are not surprised by the outcome.
Protesters then marched through downtown and to the Lane County Jail where they demanded the police to be abolished. At one point there was a tense moment between a driver in a Prius and protesters. They accused the driver of mocking the protests as he sat in his car and laughed.
The crowded ended their march back at the federal courthouse and remained peaceful the entirety of the march.
