Our country is in mourning.
We struggle with a balance of first amendment rights.
Read the speech from Dallas on July 12, 2016 after deaths on “both sides.”
These men, this department — this is the America I know. And today, in this audience, I see people who have protested on behalf of criminal justice reform grieving alongside police officers. I see people who mourn for the five officers we lost but also weep for the families of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. In this audience, I see what’s possible — (applause) — I see what’s possible when we recognize that we are one American family, all deserving of equal treatment, all deserving of equal respect, all children of God. That’s the America that I know.
~ President Barack Obama, Dallas, July 12, 2016
This is how a President speaks at such times.
