Three months ago, Breonnna Talyor was killed by Louisville officers executing a no-knock search warrant at her home, during which she was shot 8 times. None of the officers involved have been arrested or charged for her death.

On her website, Beyonce has written an open letter to Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron who is currently investigating the case. In the letter, Beyonce emphasizes how much time has passed with no action in this case or towards the officers, even though the “Breonna’s Law” has been passed in Louisville to ban no-knock warrants.

In her final words, Beyonce wrote, “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. The next months cannot look like the last three.”
