Police peacekeepers again put in the line of fire while on a dangerous job

Statement of Alderman Jim Bohl July 18, 2016

My heart aches today for the police officers killed and wounded this weekend in Baton Rouge, as well as one of our own officers who was shot and injured on duty here on Milwaukee’s South Side. Their families have my deepest sympathy, and I’m praying for a full and speedy recovery for the victims who were hurt in these heinous attacks.

The victims in these shootings were people who put themselves in harm’s way to keep the peace and make their communities a safer place for everyone to live, and they were targeted because of the uniforms and badges they wore. These crimes against police officers need to end. Nothing justifies an attack on someone who has sworn to protect and serve their communities, and we as a society need to stand up and demand better of ourselves.
