Police murders must end now

Police murders must end now

Like most Americans, we are profoundly saddened and grief-stricken by the horrific events of the past week. Two black men, Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota, were murdered by police, and then five police officers were killed along with seven more police and two civilians wounded in Dallas during a demonstration protesting the earlier murders.

Our thoughts and hearts go out to the families of all those killed, civilians and police alike.
