This cowardly attack is a national tragedy and the hearts of every Hoosier are in Dallas today.“This attack on police officers in Dallas is also a heartbreaking reminder of the risks the men and women of our law-enforcement community take every day to protect and serve our communities.“In the wake of this tragedy, we must be clear that violence and threats against law enforcement officers will never be tolerated and ensure that our police have the training and resources to defend themselves as they defend our communities.“Our hearts also go out to the families of those who lost their lives in police shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota earlier this week.“As we mourn with those who mourn, now is also a time for Hoosiers to humble ourselves and reflect on how each of us might build bridges of opportunity and hope in struggling communities across our state.“To heal our land, we must stand with those who protect and serve and continue to reach out with generosity and compassion for those in need.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
