Prayers for Dallas PD and Nation— Chief Art Acevedo (@ArtAcevedo) July 8, 2016
As I watched our community come together at Givens Park to peacefully gather and demand police accountability in this Nation, I learned of the attack in Dallas against officers protecting the First Amendment Rights of their residents. I pause to pray for the officers who lost their lives and their families and for those still fighting for their lives, their families and colleagues.
I also pray for everyone who has lost their life due to a bad police shooting and/or from all forms of violence. Life is precious and we all have an absolute responsibility to cherish and respect each and every human being. Everyone has a responsibility to respect life and all police officers have an absolute duty to do so.
I started this day with a heavy heart like many Americans and I end it with a heavy heart.
