At a Time of Unity, Rep. Matt Rinaldi Divides

Joe Walsh, Dan Patrick, and State Rep. Matt Rinaldi - at a time of unity, these fringe Republicans divide.

Leaving partisanship aside after the horrific shootings of Dallas law enforcement officers and a member of the public, all members of the Dallas area legislative delegation joined together to express condolences  and call for unity and healing, except for House District 115's Rep. Matt Rinaldi. Instead, he released his own statement blasting national conversations on "alleged systemic racism in law enforcement".

Dallas County Democratic Party Executive Director Carmen Ayala issued the following statement:

"If Matt Rinaldi cannot work together with his colleagues in a time of local and national crisis, how can he work with them on education and infrastructure?

"HD 115 residents have a better choice this November and that's Dorotha Ocker."

President's Statement on Dallas Tragedy

"I speak for every single American when I say that we are horrified over these events, and that we stand united with the people and the police department in Dallas ... Let's be clear: There is no possible justification for these kinds of attacks or any violence against law enforcement."

--President Obama July 8, 2016

Statement from the Dallas County Democratic Party:

Last night, we witnessed another tragedy in Dallas County. Snipers with assault rifles killed 5 police officers and wounded 6 before they were stopped by Dallas Police Officers armed with handguns.

This tragedy is described as the deadliest day for United States law enforcement agents since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed 72 agents. The difference is that the terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center were not targeting police officers.

Based on witness reports, sniper fire erupted at the conclusion of an otherwise peaceful downtown rally, organized by Black Lives Matters. There is no evidence that the snipers were connected to the rally, but they certainly took advantage of the assembly, at the risk of all involved.

The purpose of the rally was to protest racism and police brutality, and especially the recent police shootings of Alton Sterling of Louisiana and Philando Castile of Minnesota. Protests were organized throughout the country, but only the Dallas rally ended with sniper fire.

Carol Donovan, Dallas County Democratic Party Chair, stated, "To the victims and their families, we extend our condolences and prayers, and to all of the officers involved, we extend our gratitude for keeping us safe." 

Noting that the snipers were using assault rifles, Ms. Donovan added, "For no good reason, Congress allowed the Assault Weapons Ban of 1994 to expire in 2004. Since then, the assault rifle has become the weapon of choice for mass shootings."

President Barack Obama stated today, "We also know that when people are armed with powerful weapons, unfortunately, it makes attacks like these more deadly and more tragic.”
