FBI Agents Association on Shooting of Two LA County Sheriff’s Deputies
FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) President Brian O’Hare issued the following statement on the September 12, 2020 shooting of two law enforcement officers in Los Angeles, California:
“Federal, state, and local law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day in the service of their fellow Americans. The ambush shooting of two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies over the weekend is a tragic reminder that, as part of their jobs, these brave men and women assume great risk to themselves and great sacrifice to their families. The FBI Agents Association stands with these courageous deputies, and our thoughts and prayers are with them and with their families.
This horrific shooting occurred while these deputies were doing their jobs to protect the public. The FBIAA hopes that all Americans will join us in condemning this abhorrent act of violence.
FBI Special Agents work closely with local law enforcement officers on a daily basis as part of our joint mission to protect the public from criminal and terrorist threats. Law enforcement officers and the communities we protect are inseparable. United we stand, divided we fall.”
