Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement on the shooting of law enforcement officers in Dallas:
“Last night in Dallas, a peaceful protest for justice in the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile was interrupted by a vile act of hate against law enforcement. These shootings are an atrocity and an affront to justice. Today, the nation stands with the people of Dallas and their brave police force. I offer my condolences to the victims and their families.
“While the facts continue to come in, we do know that this was a coordinated attack against law enforcement officers. It was a sickening effort to target the brave men and women who risk their lives every day to protect us. There is no possible justification for such a senseless, evil act. These perpetrators must be brought to justice and held accountable for these horrific crimes.”
