Beyoncé Tributes Slain Dallas Police Officers: 'No Violence Will Create Peace'

Queen Bey remembers the fallen in a heartfelt video.

Published July 9, 2016

She was one of the first major public figures to speak out following the unjust killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile and now, Beyoncé is sharing some words on the unfair killings of the police officers recently killed in Dallas.

In a video clip she shared to Instagram, Bey expressed her condolances for the five officers shot by snipers during the #BlackLivesMatter protest. The clip showed the state flag of Texas in black and white with the names of each fallen officer alternating. Take a look at the video, below, and read her heartfelt caption:

The "Formation" singer also took to social media earlier this week to speak on the pointless killings of Sterling and Castile, and also posted a lengthier call to action to her website, urging her loyal Beyhive to contact their local legistlators and state officials to seek change. After posting the necessary links to those channels on her site, the Hive listened, crashing the website within minutes.
