Statement on Louisiana and Florida Tragedies

SALT LAKE CITY July 17, 2016  — Attorney General Sean Reyes released the following statement regarding the shootings today in Louisiana:

“The tragedies in Louisiana and Florida this morning only deepen our sorrow as we mourn precious lives lost in such senseless ways at home and abroad over the past several months. Whether American or French lives, law enforcement or civilian lives, regardless of religion, race, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status, our hearts do not discriminate in our grief and our prayers are neither selective nor withheld from sincere expression of love, support and solidarity for friends and loved ones of victims.

“Each of these victims, under other circumstances, could be members of our very own families and are members of our extended global family. On this day, a Sabbath to many around the world, may our prayers and thoughts be united for more peace and understanding locally and globally.”
