07.18.2016: ACLU of Louisiana Condemns Attacks on Police in Baton Rouge

BATON ROUGE, La. — The following comment can be attributed to Marjorie Esman, Executive Director, ACLU of Louisiana:

“We were deeply saddened by yesterday’s attacks on police officers in Baton Rouge. Our sympathies go out to the loved ones of the officers who were killed and wounded. They did nothing to deserve that heinous attack. They were simply doing their job: protecting the people of Baton Rouge. We condemn all violence towards the police. Such acts serve only to further damage the fragile relationship between the police and the people of Baton Rouge. We hope that in the coming days, the community can at last begin to heal.”
