Praying for peace in the aftermath of the Dallas shooting
Statement of Alderman Jim Bohl July 8, 2016
I am deeply saddened by news of last night’s shootings of police officers during an otherwise peaceful protest in Dallas. My prayers go out to the victims and their families.
It’s no small commitment to swear that you will protect and serve your community. The job is tough and dangerous, and too often it goes unappreciated by the very people to whom you swore an oath. I extend my gratitude to law enforcement officers throughout the country, and especially here in Milwaukee, for continuing their dedicated and courageous service.
