Kenny Stills‘ message remains the same after his Tuesday arrest in Kentucky.

The Texans receiver wore a shirt in his booking photo that reads: “BREONNA TAYLORS KILLERS ARE STILL POLICE.”

Stills posted the photo and wrote on social media: “’Good trouble‘ with my brothers and sisters organized by @untilfreedom. Arrested for peacefully protesting. While Breonnas Taylor’s murderers are still out on the street. #ArrestTheCops #JusticeForBreonna #BlackLivesMatter”

Stills was arrested Tuesday after participating in a protest over the death of Taylor, who police killed in March. He was charged with intimidating a participant in the legal process, a felony, as well as misdemeanor disorderly and criminal trespassing.

Stills has offered to help pay for protesters to travel to Frankfort, Kentucky — the state’s capital — to protest Taylor’s death.

Stills’ agent, Ryan Williams, tweeted that Stills “stood on a lawn, asked for justice, got arrested,” while police who killed Taylor “kicked in her door, killed her, didn’t get arrested.” Williams added, “@KSTiLLS has officially spent more time in jail fighting for justice than the known killers who killed Breonna Taylor.”

  1. Cmon Kenny – out of all the options that your large platform gives you to make your voice be heard – you pick “breaking the law” as the route to make that voice be heard. Its a bad look my man.

    Break the law, go to jail.
    Just as it should be.

    Same could be said of a group of fellas that participated in a little tea party 250 years ago…but, we call them Patriots today.

  3. Legally & Peaceful protesting against injustice should never result in arrests. It appears this was somewhat peaceful, just not legal. Wish those who completely cross the line could realize they create unnecessary distraction for those that do it legally.

    The NFL is put in a bad position as they now will have to decide if fine/suspension is warranted for a player who violated the law.

  4. Cant win.

    Protest an unjust killing and the response is “two wrongs dont make a right”.

    Unbelievable

  5. Throw the book at Stills. America has had enough of the selective outrage of people whose lives matter. Until they don’t.

    Getting charged with a felony for trespassing is exactly as it shouldn’t be .

  8. These athletes have the largest platform in the world as professionals to make a positive change in America. But yet all they do is some of the craziest things. Come on Kenny you are smarter than that. I understand what you are trying to do, but you are going about it the wrong way.

  9. The felony charge was intimidating a participant of the legal process not trespassing. Leading a large group of people to harass them and their families at their private residence is something Kenny needs to not be doing. If Kenny is not happy the way things are in government he should run for office to make the changes he sees are necessary. Jumping up and down and cursing at people on their front lawns is a bad look for Kenny.

  10. Kenny Stills does not seem concerned about the charges. He went over the line, just like protestors who destroy a building or threaten a business owner. The legal process has to work itself out; Who will be charged or not when there is a homicide. A homicide is the unlawful killing of a person by another person. Stills can not interfere with that process in any way. Waiting for the investigation to be complete was the correct behavior. What Stills did could be very serious if the felony charge stays and he gets prosecuted then convicted.

  11. Wrong way to handle it Kenny. Always been a little diva with bricks for hands. Just like Kaep, you had the ability to do things a better way, but chose not to do so.
