Scott Statement on Shooting of Police Officers in Baton Rouge

July 17, 2016
Press Release

NEWPORT NEWS, VA – Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) released the following statement on the shooting that killed three police officers and wounded several others in Baton Rouge, Louisiana:

“Cowardly acts like today’s attack in Baton Rouge have no place in our society and those responsible must be brought to justice.  Violence against the men and women who have sworn to serve and protect our communities will not bring about the reforms that so many Americans and those in the law enforcement community wish to achieve.  We must join together to end the division and tension that leads to this type of violence.  My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the fallen officers and the entire Baton Rouge police department.”
