The ambush and murder of police officers during a peaceful protest is a tragedy that tears it at the heart of every American. I agree with the Speaker that episodes like this must not harden our divisions but should unify us as a country. We are all horrified by this despicable act of violence and we share in the shock and grief for the officers killed, their loved ones and the entire Dallas community. When these officers left their homes earlier in the day, there's always the chance that they would be in danger. Right now we don't even know the names of all of them. The names have not yet been released, but I do want to acknowledge DART officer Brent Thompson and those whose names have yet to be released, as well as those who were wounded, including one civilian."
