As violent protests continue in cities across the country Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has issued a Back the Blue Alert video statement urging Floridians to support law enforcement.
"This is both heartbreaking and infuriating," Moody said. "Officers working on the frontlines of this pandemic have contracted COVID-19- some fatally. We've also seen deliberate, brutal attacks on law enforcement officers across our country."
Moody says the vast majority of law officers are good people- including her own husband. The AG says whenever you get the chance- be shure to thank law officers for what they do to keep us safe-
"Even if they've pulled you over for speeding! Because without these heroes chaos, disorder and violence would destroy this great nation we all love."
Moody says there exists a hostile and growing cohort of criminals who aim to undermine law enforcement and use this moment to attack our officers. She says it must stop- and it must stop now.
