LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville's string of sometimes-violent protests over the last five days are not only about Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and David McAtee.

"Some people get lost in why this happening. People who were hurt and frustrated and tired of being oppressed just exploded into the city streets," WDRB anchor and reporter Gilbert Corsey says on the latest episode of Uncovered, our news podcast.
