Statement on Today's Attack on Law Enforcement in Baton Rouge

The senseless murder of our nation's heroic defenders of freedom and the rule of law must stop.

What occurred in Baton Rouge this morning was an abhorrent act representing the lowest depravations of man: an attack against both civil society and the rule of law.

Americans in Support of Law Enforcement president Scott G. Erickson wrote in an op-ed today: 

Our society cannot operate — cannot function — when we normalize this type of violence against the very people dedicated and tasked with upholding the rule of law

Now more than ever all Americans must unite in their support for the men and women of law enforcement.
