You have seen it everywhere: “Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.” Those officers are still free currently but Beyoncé is also continuing the pressure applied to get justice.
Queen Bey wrote an open letter to Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron in the request of charges to the officers involved in the shooting.
“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,” Beyonce wrote in the open letter. “Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Officers’ Myles Cosgrove and Brett Hankison must be held accountable for their actions.”
In an “urge” to exercise his abilities, Beyoncé suggests Cameron brings criminal charges against the three officers Jonathan Mattingly, Myles Cosgrove, and Brett Hankison. She also suggests transparency in the investigation and procession of the officers criminal conducts and to “Investigate the LMPD’s response to Breonna Taylor’s murder, as well as the pervasive practices that result in the peated deaths of unarmed Black citizens.”
