Alicia Keys is leading a new video campaign demanding the arrest and removal from service of the police officers who are responsible for the killing of Breonna Taylor.
The video that she posted on Twitter begins with Keys asking, “Do you know what happened to Breonna Taylor?”
Breonna’s mother, Tamika Palmer then recalls the brutal murder of her daughter by the Louisville Metro Police who entered her apartment.
“They fired 22 times, eight of those bullets landed in the body of the most essential worker I will ever know,” Palmer said about her late daughter. “Now the whole city is mad, now the whole world is mad. Breonna should not be dead. Some days, I feel like I can’t breathe without her. This should never happen to another family. I am Breonna Taylor’s mother, say her name!”
The video closes with the intersectional social justice organization Until Freedom’s co-founder Tamika Mallory detailing the course of action to seek justice for Breonna.
