Rep. Pete King Statement on Dallas Police Shootings

As the death toll of Dallas cops mounts and officers fight for their lives following last night's brutal assassinations, our thoughts and prayers must be with all these brave officers and their families and loved ones. This latest brutal attack should be a vivid wake up call and reminder of how dangerous a cop's job is. Our men and women in Blue put their lives on the line for us every day and are too often subject to criticism and second guessing from critics who would never have the guts to walk in their shoes. Not every cop is perfect but the overwhelming majority of police officers are truly heroic and do more than any one else in society to save thousands of lives of innocent men and women of all races. As a son whose father served 30 years in the NYPD, I know that we can never thank police officers enough -- but we must give them our support! RIP

In another wave of police shootings, six police officers were shot last night in Pennsylvania and Florida. Both officers in the Florida shooting have died from their wounds. These latest shootings add to the upsurge in violence against the men and women in blue which has seen a 60% increase in gun murders of police officers in just the past 18 months.

These officers are the people who put their lives on the line for us every day. All too often they are maliciously attacked by liberal rags such as the New York Times and too many politically correct politicians. But these cops continue to do their job no matter what. They deserve the full support, gratitude and thanks of all good people. Blue Lives Do Matter!
