U.S. Rep. Leonard Lance (R-7) this morning reacted in a statement to the sniper killings of five police officers in Dallas, Texas.

“I am horrified about last night’s ambush of Dallas law enforcement,” said the congressman. “Every day in this country law enforcement personnel put their lives and safety on the line to protect and serve. Let us grieve for all the victims and their families.

“It appears these murders were retaliation for incidences earlier in the week,” he added. “The Department of Justice was rightfully investigating those matters. It is sickening the perpetrators took the lives of the the innocent Dallas law enforcement officers for revenge. This is not the United States we want for our families.”
