Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price voted against a ceremonial measure on Wednesday to honor fallen law enforcement officers, stating, "I think it's interesting in this country how you again try to frame the narrative with regards to other people who've lost their life at the hands of law enforcement."
Price apparently argued that fallen police officers should not be singled out for their sacrifice unless all lives lost within society are similarly acknowledged. Many disagreed with Price's sentiment.
The resolution ultimately passed 4-1 (Price abstained) and flags around Dallas County will be lowered on Friday to honor the sacrifice of all law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
