LAPPL Statement on Murder of Three Police Officers and Shooting of Four Others in Baton Rouge

Our prayers and deepest sympathies go to the families and friends of the Baton Rouge police officers and sheriff’s deputies who were ambushed and murdered this morning. We also pray for the recovery of the surviving officers. To the men and women of the Baton Rouge Police Department and East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s office, we mourn with you.

To the civic leaders of our nation, the platitudes and “rhetorical support” for law enforcement must end and be replaced with action. Our police officers deserve your strongest support and undivided attention. Now that ten law enforcement officers have been murdered in ten days, what will you do to keep our communities safe? We need your actions, not your words.

LAPPL statement on the murder and injury of Dallas Police Officers and Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police

LAPPL statement on the murder and injury of Dallas Police Officers and Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police

Our prayers and deepest sympathies go to the families and friends of the Dallas Police officers and Dallas Area Rapid Transit officers who were killed and injured in last night’s abhorrent acts of violence. We also pray for the recovery of those officers who are severely injured, so that no more families have to feel the pain and anguish of losing their loved one.

To hunt, target and murder law enforcement officers who were working to protect the safety and the First Amendment rights of protesters is pure evil. Those responsible for the attacks are cowards, plain and simple. There can be no justification for lying in wait to gun down and murder police officers.
