FBI AGENTS ASSOCIATION STATEMENT ON DALLAS SHOOTINGS
FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) President Reynaldo Tariche issued the following statement on the July 7, 2016 shootings of law enforcement officers in Dallas, Texas:
“Federal, state, and local law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day to protect the public from criminal and terrorist threats. These brave men and women do so at great risk to themselves and great sacrifice to their families. Tragically, we are all reminded of this sacrifice with the shooting of 11 Dallas law enforcement officers last night, five of whom were killed in the attack. The FBI Agents Association stands with the courageous law enforcement officers in Dallas, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who were killed or injured.
Police officers play an essential role in safeguarding our Constitutional rights to assemble and speak. The Dallas shootings occurred while officers were protecting these very rights, and they are an attack on the foundations of our democracy.
Law enforcement officers and the communities we protect are inseparable. United we stand, divided we fall.”
