Watch: Louisville Police Shoot at Reporter and Camera Crew on Live Television [Video]

A reporter got the surprised of her life when she was shot at by police while covering protests surrounding Breonna Taylor and George Floyd.

via TMZ:

Protests erupted in cities across the country Friday night, including in Lousiville, Kentucky. Reporter Kaitlin Rust of WAVE was on the ground covering the events when a police officer intentionally opened fire on her and her camera operator, seemingly striking them both with pepper balls.

Rust was certainly not in any type of disguise — she was wearing a reflective vest, holding a microphone and not in a crowded group of people — so it begs the question … what the hell was the officer doing?

Luckily, Rust appeared to be okay and continued to broadcast from the scene

As we reported … a police car was set on fire in Atlanta and The White House placed on lockdown as protests continued Friday.

Officer Derek Chauvin — who kept his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly 9 minutes while he died — was arrested Friday and charged with 3rd-degree murder and 2nd-degree manslaughter. The other 3 officers involved have not yet been arrested or charged.

You know things are bad if the police are now shooting at blonde white women.
