In the wake of the horrifying shooting of Sheriff Deputy Darren Goforth, a 10-year veteran of the force, Harris County residents and law enforcement have chosen peace and solidarity and refused hate and rage.
“District Attorney Devon Anderson and Sheriff Ron Hickman provided the necessary leadership to unite people not only in Harris County but throughout the country,” said Harris County Republican Party Chairman, Paul Simpson. “Over the weekend we saw a response from our Republican leadership in law enforcement unparalleled in this country. Sheriff Hickman and District Attorney Anderson were a calm and uniting force focused on justice for officer Goforth and the message that lives matter.”
Hickman was careful to avoid jumping to conclusions or using rhetoric that could escalate the sensitive situation, "The general climate of that kind of rhetoric can be influential on people to do things like this. We're still searching to find out if that's actually a motive," he said. Hickman made an emotional appeal that "Cops lives matter, too," and added “So why don't we just drop the qualifier and just say Lives Matter, and take that to the bank."Read more
