Tiz the Law trainer on protesters: 'I don't know what they're going to do. These rioters'

Tuesday morning Tiz the Law trainer Barclay Tagg was asked about the protests planned for Derby week.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Groups in Louisville have been protesting the death of Breonna Taylor for nearly 100 days. The group Until Freedom recently moved to Kentucky and said they plan to continue protesting until the Attorney General's office charges and arrests the officers who shot and killed Taylor.

They also announced plans to protest during the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, September 5. 

Tuesday morning Tiz the Law trainer Barclay Tagg was asked about the protests planned for Derby week.

"We have a driver that takes us back to the hotel and brings us here [Churchill Downs] in the morning. We train the horses and I don't know. I don't know what these guys are going to do. These rioters. All I know is that you're not allowed to shoot them and they're allowed to shoot you. That's what it looks like to me. I don't know what to think about it," Tagg said.
