The mostly peaceful mob that surrounded Sen. Rand Paul last night demanded that he “say her name,” “her” being Breonna Taylor:

Who wants to tell them?
Remarkable to watch protesters scream "SAY HER NAME!" at Rand Paul, the author of the Justice for Breonna Taylor Act

Paul introduced the “Justice for Breonna Taylor” Act in June, which bans no-knock warrants and is named in her honor https://t.co/FUmFcJT6eK

So the protestor is yelling “Breonna Taylor” repeatedly at him. Respectfully, they need to do their homework. @RandPaul introduced S. 3955, the Justice for Breonna Taylor Act-it eliminates all no knock warrants—goes farther than any other bill in the Senate on warrants. https://t.co/gdWAHWcthk

Protesters demanded that Senator @RandPaul say Breonna Taylor's name.
"White silence is violence!"
"Say her name!"
It's worth mentioning on June 11, Paul introduced the "Justice for Breonna Taylor Act." pic.twitter.com/SbpxSvTnEt

But apparently none of that matters.
Pure ignorance on display. https://t.co/ojrtE8gqzM

Yeah mobbing @RandPaul for not doing enough on #CJreform is asinine. He's done/tried to do more than probably anyone on Senate. And when you yell at people even after they've long been doing the thing you want them to do, your advocacy is fully ineffective.

A testamant to the corruption in media that these "activists" don't know that.
Probably don't even know that Act exists because it wasn't a Democrat who introduced it. https://t.co/963u1qANnM

For whatever reason, I’m starting to get the feeling that the mob doesn’t care. https://t.co/S29V9PjP4K

One thing’s for sure:
It’s not about justice and hasn’t been for weeks. https://t.co/hPB3MHZqsU
