Press Release

Following the shooting deaths of 5 Dallas police officers, and the injury of 6 others, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) released the following statement:

“My heart is broken today. This vicious and targeted attack on Dallas police officers who were working at an otherwise peaceful protest shocks the conscience and troubles the soul. It is a despicable act.

“I grieve for the officers who were murdered and pray for the recovery of those injured. My most sincere condolences go to the family members, loved ones, and fellow officers who are suffering in the aftermath. I also want to thank our police forces across the nation and in my hometown, the NYPD, for their tireless and heroic efforts in ensuring our safety and putting their lives on the line every time they don the uniform.

“This armed attack on police officers underscores the urgent need for our country to come together and work cooperatively to put an end to the senseless violence that plagues us all. It is up to us to work together and bridge the divide that has created a rift between our police forces and the communities which they serve.”
