A police officer in Dallas died this morning while escorting Senator Hillary Clinton’s motorcade to a campaign rally. The officer’s name has not yet been released.
In response to the tragedy, Senator Clinton said “We are just heartsick at this loss of life in the line of duty,” and cancelled her next rally, saying such an event would be inappropriate under the circumstances. Senator Clinton said she plans to speak to the officer’s family, adding “It is important that we respect and appreciate their service … I certainly am grateful for all they do for me.”
This is a tragic event, but also a suitable and worthy response from Senator Clinton.
