Following the protests that rocked the city of Louisville, Kentucky on Wednesday night, a peculiar video that appears to depict the protesters' preparations has emerged online.
The video in question depicts protesters grabbing what Fox News describes as "signs, shields, water and other supplies" from a U-Haul truck that “pulled up near Breonna Taylor protests".
"We got shields!" a woman can be heard shouting in the background, as protesters can be seeing retrieving signs saying "Abolish the Police" and "Abolition Now".

Commenting on this development, a number of social media users cracked joke about how “spontaneous” the protesters' actions appear in light of this vid, and pondered on whether it might be possible to track down whoever rented the truck.
Wow I can't believe their luck! A van just happens to drive up with all these supplies— gemmie (@uselessgemmie) September 23, 2020
Get the tag number and report cops so they can reference what U-Haul it was picked up at and by who— Lobbyist_pundit 💸 (@Lobbyist_pundit) September 23, 2020
Imagine the luck!! That a moving truck full of shields and other “peaceful protest supplies” just happens to show up there today. Total coincidence.— VinylLife (@TrueDodgerCrue) September 23, 2020

- Track down which uHaul location rented it out.
- obtain a warrant for the rental records
- identify who paid for it
- arrest that person for inciting a riot
Elementary stuff that the FBI & DOJ should do TODAY...but they won’t
The protests erupted after a US Grand Jury ruled to not charge any police officer involved in the fatal shooting of African-American woman Breonna Taylor during a narcotics raid back in March, with only one officer being indicted for wanton endangerment.
