Beyoncé Pens Letter To Kentucky Attorney General Calling For Justice In Breonna Taylor Case

As America waits for the trials of Derek Chauvin, J Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane, and Tou Thao over the death of George Floyd, the public is making sure that other cases of police-involved killings aren’t going unnoticed. Arrests aren’t necessarily justice, but the George Floyd case has at least seen the officers involved face charges, while those involved with Breonna Taylor‘s murder still haven’t been held responsible for their badge-wearing crimes.

I’m not going to go into full detail about Breonna Taylor or her case here—you can read the detailed account of what happened to her while she was innocently sleeping in her bed for police stormed into her home and shot her dead here. Beyoncé has been a trailblazer in speaking out about Breonna’s case by asking her followers, fans, and the world at large to write, call, and petition for the officers involved in the shooting to be arrested, charged, and held accountable for their actions.

“Three months have passed — and zero arrests have been made, and no officers have been fired,” Beyoncé wrote in her open letter to Daniel Cameron, the Attorney General of Kentucky. “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. Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Officers Myles Cosgrove and Brett Hankison must be held accountable for their actions.”

“Don’t let this case fall into the pattern of no action after a terrible tragedy,” Beyoncé stated. “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. The next months cannot look like the last three.”

The investigation into the death of Breonna Taylor has been puzzling, at best. A police report has information missing as large fields were just left blank, and there have been reports that Brett Hankison has been accused of multiple instances of sexual misconduct. The public is outraged, but still there remains silence from the Lousiville Metro Police Department.
