KENTUCKY GOV. DEMANDS PROBE OF BREONNA TAYLOR KILLING Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear is calling for an investigation into the police killing of a Black first responder shot dead in her own home. Breonna Taylor, 26, was shot eight times by Louisville Metro police officers on March 13 after they entered her apartment with a drug warrant looking for someone else. “The commonwealth’s attorney, the U.S. attorney and the Kentucky attorney general should carefully review the results of the initial investigation to ensure justice is done at a time when many are concerned that justice is not blind,” Beshear said.

  1. You saw the video. Ahmaud Arbery – a Black man running in a white neighborhood in Georgia – was hunted and killed in broad daylight.

    Local police and district attorneys in multiple counties failed to take action – for nearly two months – until the gruesome video of Ahmaud’s killing went public and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation ordered the arrest of the men who killed him.

    The killers – and our legal system – must be held accountable, and we need your help to demand justice.

    Lola, we’re calling on the Department of Justice to conduct a full hate crimes investigation AND to investigate the misconduct of local law enforcement officials. Will you add your voice to this fight? ADD YOUR NAME >>

    Innocent Black lives continue to be taken with impunity, and the glaring flaws in our legal system allow it to happen.

    Ahmaud’s senseless killing wasn’t an isolated incident, Lola. It’s part of a pattern of violence committed by current and former law enforcement officials that has resulted in the loss of countless Black lives.

    And the only way we fix this broken system is by shining a light on misconduct, investigating officials to hold them accountable, and calling out wrongdoing wherever we find it.

    We need you in this fight, Lola. Attorney General William Barr has said he’s committed to the vigorous investigation of hate crimes, and we need your help to hold his feet to the fire. ADD YOUR NAME >>

    Federal action is absolutely necessary in this case. Georgia’s own Attorney General has requested an investigation, and the state has no hate crimes statutes to properly address the full nature of Ahmaud’s killing.

    The fact that Glynn County officials were willing to let Ahmaud’s killers walk free – even though the Georgia Bureau of Investigation recommended arrests within two days of the video going public – indicates the urgent need for federal scrutiny.

    The DOJ must take action in this case to ensure justice for Ahmaud Arbery and to hold local law enforcement accountable for its failure to act.

    Lola, speak out today: Demand a federal hate crimes investigation AND an investigation into Glynn County law enforcement. ADD YOUR NAME >>


    With you in solidarity,
