Members Of North State Law Enforcement Issue Statements On Killing Of George Floyd

A number of public safety agencies have made statements condemning the actions of the Minneapolis Police Officer who killed George Floyd and sparked protests nationwide. The Shasta County District Attorney’s Office posted a message to all community members saying “We will not stand for brutality in any form or by anyone. We offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of George Floyd.” The Tehama County Deputy Sheriff’s Association called it an inappropriate use of force that should be called out, and posted a graphic that says “No one hates bad cops more than good cops.” Chico Police Chief Michael O’Brien, who is a week away from retirement, said he was professionally and personally disturbed and angered by what he saw in the video of Floyd’s arrest. Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea says he and his command staff are all furious, disgusted, frustrated, sad and concerned, and they’re working to be sure that their staff would never see what happened to George Floyd as acceptable. In Oroville civilians, sheriff’s deputies and police gathered in solidarity to recognize the injustice. There have been some isolated graffiti and vandalism incidents in Redding, but a march Friday night from the M.L.K. Center to city hall remained peaceful, and another peaceful protest is set for Tuesday night starting at 6:30PM in the parking lot of Kohl’s.
