Statement from Governor Larry Hogan on Shooting of Dallas Police Officers

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today issued the following statement:

“This morning, I share in the grief and heartbreak that burdens members of our law enforcement community as well as millions of Americans across the country. Yesterday’s senseless violence and the shocking death of five police officers in Dallas was a tragedy unlike anything our country has witnessed in recent years.

“The city of Dallas will be holding a moment of silence at 1pm ET today, and I am urging all Marylanders to stand with the people of Texas at that time. Let us mourn the deaths of those who put their lives on the line to keep Dallas safe; let us pray for the safety of the men and women in blue all across the country; and let us take time today and every day to thank our brave officers for their service and reassure them that they do not stand alone.

“In Maryland and across the country, the obvious tensions between communities and law enforcement are real and cannot be ignored or swept under the rug. But there is so much more that unites us than divides us. Now is clearly a time for profound sorrow, but also for reflection, understanding and above all, compassion.

“The First Lady and I send our most sincere thoughts and prayers to the families and loved ones of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty, as well as to those officers recovering from this horrific shooting.”

The problems are police and their terrible training to regard Americans as "enemy".

We need to get the exhausted military people OUT OF POLICE WORK.
Police are not here to bully us and kill us.
They are supposed to protect us.

Mr. Larry Hogan Institute that self preservation and self protection is enough for a conceal carry permit and we can take back our streets...

that is exactly what they have been doing and is how we got to where we are today. The best police officer is the one who never has to draw their weapon.
