Four cops have been arrested and charged in the killing of George Floyd on Memorial Day. 

However, the three officers who killed Breonna Taylor on March 13 in her own bed during a drug raid at the wrong house are still on the job. 

And Gabrielle Union is joining the calls demanding action.

On June 10, Gabrielle Union posted a video featuring Taylor’s mother Tamika Palmer and activist Tamika Mallory. All three are calling for the arrest of the officers, Sgt. Jon Mattingly, 47; Myles Cosgrove, 42; and Brett Hankison, 44, involved in Taylor’s death.

Union tweeted, “Do you know what happened to #BreonnaTaylor? The officers who took part in her murder need to be charged & arrested NOW!!⁣⁣⁣ Listen to the facts from her beautiful mother. Donate, protest, petition & DEMAND #JusticeforBreonnaTaylor #SayHerName.”

On June 10, the Louisville Police Department, according to the Courier Journal, released a nearly empty "incident report" with details about the night Breonna Taylor.

The so-called incident report doesn't even mention Taylor was killed during the no-knock raid to her apartment on March 13.

The report lists her injuries as "none," even though she was shot at least eight times and died in her hallway floor in a pool of blood, according to attorneys for her family.

It lists the charges as "death investigation — LMPD involved" but checks the "no" box under "forced entry," even though officers used a battering ram to knock in Taylor's apartment door.

It also lists under the "offenders" portion of the report the three officers who fired in Taylor's apartment, fatally shooting her. 

The officers have not yet been arrested or charged with any crimes, despite widespread outrage across the country.
