SAN BERNARDINO – Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) issued the following statement today on the shooting of San Bernardino Police Officer Gabriel Garcia:
“I am praying for a speedy and full recovery for San Bernardino Police Officer Gabriel Garcia. As I stated at his vigil last Friday, we must control the violence rising in our communities. We must begin to address the underlying factors, which create an atmosphere that breeds violence. I call on every citizen to help us stop this steady increase of violent actions, which begins with all of us respecting and helping our law enforcement officers keep our communities and cities safe.
It is imperative that the community leaders, law enforcement and public safety officials come together to discuss and work on a comprehensive plan to stop the violence. This is a problem that can only be solved by everyone respecting each other and working together for a common goal and purpose.”
Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown represents the 47th Assembly District, which includes Colton, Fontana, Grand Terrace, Rialto, San Bernardino, and the unincorporated communities of Bloomington and Muscoy.
