I strongly condemn any act of brutality that entail abuse of power, violence, and fatalities perpetrated by the police or by civilians. But the published video in this website gives us a clear picture of the crimes and the authors.
Police Brutality Caught on camera in Canada, Toronto
At least three police officers have been killed, and three more were wounded by what’s believed to be a lone gunman.
“We as a nation have to be loud and clear nothing justifies an attack on law enforcement,” the President said, offering up that in no uncertain terms, an attack against police is an attack “against all of us and the rule of law that makes society possible.”
“Most of all our hearts go out the families who are grieving. Our prayers go out to the officer who is fighting for his life.” He offered up the “respect and the gratitude of the American people” to all law enforcement officers today.
The President gave a half-hearted call for unity, only such because it seems even he already knows that this latest police killing will drive the divisions between Americans further apart. The President seemed worn, sad, and eager to get the statement over with. This is the second such statement he’s had to make this month.
The President also released a written statement, which you can read below via the White House:
“I condemn, in the strongest sense of the word, the attack on law enforcement in Baton Rouge. For the second time in two weeks, police officers who put their lives on the line for ours every day were doing their job when they were killed in a cowardly and reprehensible assault. These are attacks on public servants, on the rule of law, and on civilized society, and they have to stop.
“I’ve offered my full support, and the full support of the federal government, to Governor Edwards, Mayor Holden, the Sheriff’s Office, and the Baton Rouge Police Department. And make no mistake – justice will be done.
“We may not yet know the motives for this attack, but I want to be clear: there is no justification for violence against law enforcement. None. These attacks are the work of cowards who speak for no one. They right no wrongs. They advance no causes. The officers in Baton Rouge; the officers in Dallas – they were our fellow Americans, part of our community, part of our country, with people who loved and needed them, and who need us now – all of us – to be at our best.
“Today, on the Lord’s day, all of us stand united in prayer with the people of Baton Rouge, with the police officers who’ve been wounded, and with the grieving families of the fallen. May God bless them all.”
