May 2020: Statement from Sheriff Lowe about the Tragic Death of George Floyd
The Louisa County Sheriff’s Office stands shoulder to shoulder in solidarity with our nation in vigorously condemning the horrific and unlawful actions by law enforcement officers resulting in the tragic, unnecessary and untimely death of George Floyd.
We have no room in our hearts and community for this type of crime and we will continue to demand that racism, police brutality and violence of any kind will not exist in our community.
I support a demand of action to prevent similar occurrences like this in our nation and strongly oppose any violence and criminal activity in our attempt to have our voices heard. Keep the passion and get rid of the hate.
We need to stay united as we are truly blessed to have a community that supports our peaceful way of life; come together and communicate during our times of need as we are “Community Strong”.
George Floyd has and will continue to make a difference and so shall we!
