Dallas law enforcement officers are furious with the decision of Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price not to support the resolution to honor the murdered police officers ambushed last year, the Gateway Pundit reports.
During a court session last Wednesday, Price unexpectedly opposed the Fallen Law Enforcement Officer Day intended to honor the fallen policemen.
The resolution would make July 7 a day to honor all fallen cops. All commissioners all voted in favor of the resolution except for Price. “Abstained,” shouted Price after the vote.
“It’s interesting in this country how you again continue to try to frame a narrative with regards to other people who have lost their lives at the hands of law enforcement. Any loss of life is bad,” Price continued.
This drew angry reaction from a slew of police associations and support groups. Dallas Police Association President Mike Mata said Commissioner Price owe the law enforcement community an apology.
But Price is not taking back his words and will not offer any apology.
