On the Death of George Floyd
Today Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski issued the following statement:
"The public entrusts law enforcement officers with immense power to perform their duties. When officers abuse that power, they must be held accountable. George Floyd's death demands that those involved be brought to justice.
Across our nation, we have seen far too many examples of black and brown communities suffering at the hands of officers that have dishonored their profession.
In Baltimore County and throughout the country, we need to have difficult and honest conversations to meaningfully address the deeply-rooted challenges we face, embracing the values of diversity, equity and inclusion."
