Dear Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer,
It has been three months! We are heartbroken, outraged and horrified by the details surrounding the murder of Breonna Taylor. By now you know Breonna would have celebrated her 27th birthday this past Friday, a birthday she will never celebrate because she was gunned down in her own home and shot more than eight times. The recklessness of the officers who barged in with no warrant and took her life can not be understated. Still, more than two months after cops murdered her, these same three officers have faced no consequences for their actions and are still employed by the Louisville Metro Police Department. This is a great injustice to Breonna Taylor, her family, the citizens of Louisville and the country.
We urge you to:
- Fire the three officers John Mattingly, Brett Hankison, Myles Cosgrove and any other officer involved in the death of Breonna Taylor.
- Charges and the immediate arrests of the officers involved, specifically John Mattingly, Brett Hankison, Myles Cosgrove, and any other officer involved in the death of Breonna Taylor must be made NOW.
- Work with Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Louisville Police Department immediately. Not an in-house investigation.
These officers must immediately be fired and charged for illegally entering her home and for taking Breonna Taylor’s life.
We are calling on you to fire and charge them now!
