STATE FOP ISSUES STATEMENT ON GOV. WOLF’S RESPONSE TO PHILADELPHIA SHOOTING

STATE FOP ISSUES STATEMENT ON GOV. WOLFS RESPONSE
TO PHILADELPHIA SHOOTING

HARRISBURG, Pa. (Oct. 28, 2020) – Fraternal Order of Police State Lodge President Les Neri today issued the following statement:

What happened Monday night in Philadelphia was a tragedy for everyone involved. But to hear Gov. Wolf during a recent interview rush to unfounded conclusions by saying this looks like part of the cycle of injustice that has been going on for far too long’ was a total failure of good judgment and true leadership on his part. Such statements only serve to fuel an anti-police false narrative used by some for their own political purposes.
 

"Law enforcement is a very dangerous profession. Police officers never know when rapidly evolving situations will lead them to a split-second decision to use justified deadly force.  When these encounters occur, everyone, including the governor, must resist a dangerous rush to judgment that only serves to cause more division, injury, destruction and heartbreak. We owe it to all involved to provide the time and resources for a proper and thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances that led to the use of that force.
 

“We will continue to keep the Wallace family, the involved officers, the officers injured during the post-incident rioting and looting, the business owners, the local community that suffered unwarranted property destruction, and even Gov. Wolf in our thoughts and prayers.”
