Sheriffs Respond to Horrific Shooting at Congressional Baseball Practice
Alexandria, VA - National Sheriffs' Association President Sheriff Greg Champagne released the following statment in regards to the horrific shooting at the congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, VA today.
"The National Sheriffs' Association would like to offer our collective prayers to House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and his family, as well as to all of those injured in the unprovoked shooting in Alexandria, VA this morning. We wish all of those victims a speedy and complete recovery.
We also call upon everyone to end the vitriolic political rhetoric that has no other purpose than to dehumanize and demonize those with different political views or who belong to a certain group. Law enforcement officers have also been the subject of this destructive rhetoric that puts us all in danger. It is literally tearing our country apart. Enough is enough!"
