FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BARRY MOORE SIGNS POLICE PLEDGE,
“OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS DO TREMENDOUS WORK ON OUR BEHALF”
Enterprise, AL–AL-2 Congressional candidate Barry Moore reaffirmed his strong support for law enforcement Monday by signing the Police Pledge before a group of supporters. The Police Pledge states that “A lawful society—free from mob rule and violent insurrection—is not possible without Law Enforcement. Police Officers have chosen a noble profession. They dedicate their lives to upholding the law and protecting the sacred rights of their fellow citizens. As a profession, they deserve support and respect. I stand with America’s Police and pledge to oppose any bill, resolution, or movement to “Defund the Police.”
Heritage Action for America is sponsoring the Police Pledge, and as of Monday 5 U.S. Senators, 54 U.S. House members, 2 Governors, 67 State Officials, and over 37,000 Citizens had signed the pledge, according to the Heritage Action web site.
Moore said in a statement:
“It was easy for me to decide to sign the Police Pledge. Our law enforcement officers do tremendous work on our behalf, often in dangerous situations where emotions are running high and tempers are flaring. We owe them our full support and our thanks.
“The last few weeks have shown us just how important our police are to our society, and how much we rely on them in times of crisis. The Left has been screaming for months to ‘defund the police’, saying ‘we can defend ourselves’. Then, the minute something happens they scream for the police. Well, by then it’s too late. The hypocrisy of the Left, and the shameless way they try to take both sides of this issue, is mind-blowing.
“The Democrat’s refusal to support our police officers has brought us to this point. Our cities are being destroyed, and it’s mainly Democrat-run cities that are suffering the most. I’m saddened that the citizens of those cities have to bear the brunt of failed liberal policies, and pray every day for them and the police who are trying so hard to protect them despite being hamstrung by their leaders.
“I always have, and I always will, support law enforcement, and will always resist efforts to defund the police. I’m truly looking forward to taking part in the Back the Blue event in Dothan on Saturday, Sept. 12th. This is a great opportunity for people all across District 2 to come and show our support for our police, and I hope to see a great turnout there.”
Moore is the Republican nominee for the AL-2 congressional seat in the general election on November 3rd. He is a small businessman, veteran, husband and father of four from Enterprise.
