LOS ANGELES – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris issued the following statement on the tragic shooting in Dallas that resulted in the deaths of five police officers.

"The horrific tragedy in Dallas is a grave reminder of the dangers our law enforcement officers face each day in service of their communities. I pray for the officers who lost their lives last night, for their grieving families and our law enforcement brothers and sisters in Dallas. Last night's unspeakable violence reminds me of these words from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."

"Violence only increases distrust and anger.  I know firsthand that the relationship of trust between law enforcement and the communities we are sworn to serve is reciprocal.  We honor the courage and sacrifice of law enforcement as we continue the important national dialogue around reforming our criminal justice system."
