Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear urged protesters to go home tonight, after two police officers were shot in Louisville, the city where Breonna Taylor was killed.
"We know that the answer to violence is never violence and we are thinking about those two officers and their families tonight. So I’m asking everybody: please, go home. Go home tonight," he said.
"There will be many times over the coming days where there will be an opportunity to be heard and so many people are listening right now. As your governor, I’ve promised to listen."
Beshear added that he is thinking about the two injured officers and their family.
"But let’s make sure we don’t see any more violence tonight, and let’s make sure that we find ways of expressing ourselves moving forward where your point and other people’s points are made and that hopefully we can not just listen, but we can hear," he said, urging people to "stay safe."
