The family of Breonna Taylor called out protesters who were violent and vandalized buildings as well as looted in downtown Louisville Friday night. 

Taylor’s sister posted a message via Facebook Saturday morning.

“At this point y’all are no longer doing this for my sister! You guys are just vandalizing stuff for NO reason! I had a friend ask people why they are their most didn’t even know the “protest” was for my sister. What you guys started at the begging was fine and correctly done but once yall started vandalism you took my sisters name out of place! I honestly feel like you guys are disrespecting my family wishes for a safe and NON-VIOLENT protest!”
