Columbia, S.C. — Jaime Harrison, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, offered the following response to the ambush shooting of two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies as they sat in their patrol vehicle.
“Marie and I are praying for the recovery of these two deputies,” Harrison said. “We are also thinking of their families today, as we both know what it feels like to worry about the safety of family members in law enforcement. Senseless attacks like this on law enforcement have no place in our society, whether in South Carolina or California. Americans across the political spectrum are coming together to advance reforms on how police use force in this country. But, the violence and vandalism we have seen in some cities is not activism. We must come together to ensure all Americans feel safe in their communities.”
