SJ - July 15, 2020

Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills was arrested on Tuesday and charged intimidating a participant in the legal process, a felony, and misdemeanor disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.  He was part of a group of Breonna Taylor protesters who marched to the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.

Stills has been one of the more active and vocal NFL players when it comes to racial injustice and police brutality.  He's continued to kneel during the National Anthem since Colin Kaepernick started the protest back in 2016.

From Courier Journal:

Stills, 28, was entered into the jail's booking log just before midnight after having been taken into custody earlier in the afternoon, as he and dozens of other protesters marched to the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron to demand action against the police officers who shot and killed Breonna Taylor in March.

Stills was charged with intimidating a participant in the legal process, a felony, as well as misdemeanor disorderly conduct and criminal trespass. His arraignment was set for 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.

You have to give Stills a ton of credit, he isn't just talking the talk.  He's out there walking the walk and standing up for what he believes in.  So many times NFL players are getting arrested for dumb shit.

Even if you disagree with Stills you have to respect what he's doing.
