Following the shooting of a sheriff in Houston, Texas by a black man as well as chants from Black Lives Matter protesters advocating violence against police, GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)96%
issued a statement saying he is proud to stand with law enforcement.
While campaigning in New Hampshire, Cruz addressed the attacks. both physical and verbal, which have been made against police officers across America.
Cruz is calling for leadership to act against this assault on all law enforcement officers, in light of the killing of Harris Country deputy sheriff Darren Goforth, which took place in Cruz’s hometown.
“We stand with our police officers, we stand with our fire fighters, with our EMS, with our first responders,” Cruz’s statement began. “These are brave humans who risk their lives keeping us safe. We are seeing a manifestation of the rhetoric and vilification of law enforcement that is coming form the top — all the way to the President of the United States and senior administration officials.”
