Kenny Stills, Breonna Taylor

Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills was apprehended and charged alongside 87 other demonstrators while protesting Breonna Taylor’s murder, and the eight-year NFL veteran had a few words to share after his arrest.

In a post he sent out on his personal Twitter account, Stills shared a picture captioned with a message regarding his protest and arrest. The Texans wideout started his tweet of by saying,”‘Good trouble’ with my brothers and sisters- organized by @untilfreedom”, implying that his arrest, brought about by the demonstration, was worth it because of their fight for justice.

He added later in the post that while the police officers who murdered Breonna Taylor are still free and “out on the street” while he was arrested for simply protesting in a peaceful manner.

Kenny Stills and his fellow protestors marched from a local high school to Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s home on Tuesday. The group was demanding that Cameron call for the arrest and charging of the three Louisville police officers involved in the Breonna Taylor killing.

According to a story by ESPN, Louisville Metro Police spokesman Lamont Washington told the media that all the protesters were given a chance to leave the Attorney General’s property before officers began arresting them, including Stills.

An article by South Florida Sun Sentinel’s Omar Kelly reported that Stills and fellow protesters, which included Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star Porsha Williams and rappers YBN Cordae and Trae the Truth, were already released from police custody earlier on Wednesday.
