Statement on Minnesota and Louisiana Police-Involved Shootings

“I’m horrified by what I’ve read and seen of the two shootings of black men by police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota. While I honor the public service of police officers, we must confront the truth: something is systemically wrong with how law enforcement in our country interacts with people of color.

“Every government official in this country must take personal responsibility for helping to fix this. The status quo is senseless death, and any of us in government who are not actively working to prevent the next senseless death are hastening it.”
