The City of Collinsville, Oklahoma joins the Nation in mourning the loss of valiant police officers who have given their lives in the line of duty while in service with their respective agencies. We grieve with their families. Their loss is our loss and our hearts ache with theirs.
As a former police officer, the son of a police officer, and step-father of a police officer, I condemn these atrocious, despicable acts of murder and hate carried out against these whom we depend on to protect us. When we call, they respond without hesitation and without question, they come. Without them, God help us all.
There is no grievance, none, that could justify such dastardly and cowardly attacks on our Nations Peace Officers, and we must stand united against them.
Bud York, Mayor of City of Collinsville, Oklahoma
