Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron slammed over engagement photos amid Breonna Taylor case

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is getting slammed on social media after photos surfaced of his recent engagement party — with critics including Beyoncé’s mother questioning how he’s been spending his time while the cops involved in Breonna Taylor’s death remain free.

“Instead of charging the killers of #BreonnaTaylor ….. Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron had an engagement party this weekend,” said a tweet reposted by Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Lawson, on Instagram on Tuesday.

The tweet included photos of Cameron and his fiancee at their engagement party.

“I was shocked to learn that the attorney general for Kentucky is a 34 year old black man. A republican,” Lawson wrote next to the posting.

“When Breonna’s Mother Tamika asked to speak with him, he had someone else call her. ! 💔💔 When he ran for office there are a lot of Black people that were excited and thought oh my God maybe we have a fair chance now because it will be a black man in this position ! He will be fair and unbiased towards Black people. They voted for him.

“Well That’s why it’s important to educate yourself on people who are running for office.”

Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman, died March 13 during a botched police raid at her home in Louisville.

Earlier this month, Beyoncé demanded in a public letter to Cameron that the officers involved be prosecuted.

Cameron responded at a later press conference that he wouldn’t be swayed by her or any other celebrity, saying, “An investigation of this magnitude, when done correctly, requires time and patience.”
