After the shooting deaths of Dallas Police Officers and DART officers at a peaceful protest last night, Lambda Legal issued a statement from Roger Poindexter, South Central Regional Office Director and National Board of Directors Co-chair Tracey Guyot-Wallace, both based in Dallas:

It’s a sad day for our city. Our hearts go out to the families of the officers who were killed or injured. Gun violence everywhere must end. Shooting random police officers at a peaceful protest isn’t the answer to anything.

We don’t know all the facts yet and though some may quickly rush to judgment, we must resist attempts to assign motives or make blanket statements that do more harm than good.
