Dallas commissioner voted against honoring the murdered police officers.
Commissioner John Wiley Price said the officers brought it on themselves.
Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price voted to oppose a resolution to honor murdered police officers, blaming police officers for the assassinations.
The Wednesday vote was supposed to be largely ceremonial, but gained unexpected opposition as Commissioner John Wiley Price argued that law enforcement should not be honored, according to Fox4.
“I think it’s interesting in this country how you again try to frame the narrative with regards to other people who’ve lost their life at the hands of law enforcement,” Price said. “No life is more important than any other life.”
Price said that ‘unjust police violence’ was the cause of the terrorist attacks against law enforcement, according to Fox4.
