Protestors outside the White House swarmed Kentucky Senator Rand Paul following the Republican National Convention on Friday. The “activists” screamed at the lawmaker to acknowledge the tragic shooting of Breonna Taylor which occurred in March. 

Social media footage shows the charged encounter. 

Paul was escorted through the mob of protestors while police officers stood guard. One member of the crowd shoves an officer, causing him to stumble back into Paul. 

Breonna Taylor’s story is, in deed, horrific — and we should do all we can to make sure a death like hers never happens again. On March 13 around 1 a.m., Louisville Kentucky Metro Police Department entered the apartment of her home using a “no-knock” search warrant and a battering ram.  Taylor – who wasn’t even the main subject of their narcotics investigation — ended up dead.  She was shot eight times by police. No drugs were found.

According to the Louisville Courier Journal, “The U.S. Supreme Court has said judges may allow police to search without knocking when they have a reasonable suspicion that under the ‘particular circumstances’ of the case, the targets could destroy evidence.”

However, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul  – a staunch defender of the Fourth Amendment — has been trying to end the terrible practice. “No one should lose their life in pursuit of a crime without a victim, and ‘no-knock’ warrants should be forbidden,” Paul told the Louisville Courier Journal. “Let’s hope the investigation provides justice.”

Already change has begun.  You know, the change that these protesters say they want.

On criminal justice reform, Paul is as close as they come to an “ally” of the mob. He even authored the Breonna Taylor law to end “no knock” raids. He is literally accomplishing exactly what they say they want.

But that’s the thing, isn’t it?  They don’t know what they want or how to get it.  The mob just wants to terrorize, not make positive changes for our nation.

Paul later joined Fox & Friends to say he believes he would have been killed if it were not for the police presence. 

“I believe there are going to be people who are involved with the attack on us that actually were paid to come here, are not from Washington, D.C., and are sort of paid to be anarchists,” he said. “This is disturbing because really, if you’re inciting a riot that’s a crime, but if you’re paying someone to incite a riot that person needs to go to jail as well.”

The senator is calling for the FBI to make arrests. 

Unfortunately enough, our country is in a state where no matter your platform, you will be harassed for political affiliation. If we don’t get control over the streets, the leftist radical mob will run the country. 

On this point, I agree with the protestors: No justice, no peace.

It’s time to bring justice to the streets of our nation.
