The world is in mourning and uproar over the recent deaths of black lives at the hands of law enforcement.

Justice is being called for Breonna Taylor, a 26 year old black woman who was shot 8 times in her own home by plain-clothed police officers on March 13 in Louisville, without any charges laid on them.

Beyoncé penned a letter to the Kentucky Attorney General this past Sunday calling for justice Breonna Taylor, and demanding on all 3 officers involved in the case be charged.



Beyoncé started the letter boldly with “Three months have passed — and zero arrests have been made, and no officers have been fired. The LMPD’s investigation was turned over to your office, and yet all of the officers involved in the shooting remain employed by the LMPD.” She continues with 3 demands: “1) Bring criminal charges against Jonathan Mattingly, Myles Cosgrove, and Brett Hankison. 2) Commit to transparency in the investigation and prosecution of these officers’ criminal conduct. 3) Investigate the LMPD’s response to Breonna Taylor’s murder, as well as the pervasive practices that result in the repeated deaths of unarmed Black citizens.”

She finishes the letter with “Don’t let this case fall into the pattern of no action after a terrible tragedy. With every death of a Black person at the hands of the police, there are two real tragedies: the death itself, and the inaction and delays that follow it. This is your chance to end that pattern. Take swift and decisive action in charging the officers.”
