Beyoncé Speaks Out On Police Shootings

Beyoncé is speaking out on the police shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile in a post on her official website.

In a message titled, “Freedom,” Bey writes:

We are sick and tired of the killings of young men and women in our communities.

It is up to us to take a stand and demand that they “stop killing us.”

We don’t need sympathy. We need everyone to respect our lives.

We’re going to stand up as a community and fight against anyone who believes that murder or any violent action by those who are sworn to protect us should consistently go unpunished.
