Dallas Co. Commissioner Votes Against Honoring Murdered Officers, Says They Brought It On Themselves

 Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price voted against honoring police officers.

Dallas, TX – Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price voted to oppose a resolution to honor murdered police officers, blaming police officers for the assassinations.

The Wednesday vote was supposed to be largely ceremonial, but gained unexpected opposition as Commissioner John Wiley Price argued that law enforcement should not be honored, according to Fox4.

“I think it’s interesting in this country how you again try to frame the narrative with regards to other people who’ve lost their life at the hands of law enforcement,” Price said. “No life is more important than any other life.”

Sheriff Lupe Valdez argued that all officers killed in the line of duty deserve to be honored.

“It’s not that they died, because everybody dies. It’s how they died,” she said. “We need to continue as people in blue to make a difference so that both sides, both of us hurt when somebody dies — it’s not officers go home safely, it’s let’s all go home safely.”

Since being the only commissioner to vote against the resolution, John Wiley Price has refused to back down from his statements.

“Until we start to recognize all life, then no life is more important than any other life,” Price said.

Others have been voicing their disagreement with Price.

 “It was to honor these fallen so I think he does owe the law enforcement community an apology. There’s a time and a place for everything,” Dallas Police Association President Mike Mata told Fox4. “Any other day of the week, I would agree with him. But on a day where we lost five officers who were murdered on the streets in the city of Dallas from hateful rhetoric — whether it’s from the police side of the community or the community to the police — is not the day that you do it.”

In April, prosecutors unsuccessfully prosecuted John Wiley Price, accusing him of using his public office to illegally take over $1 million. The jury deadlocked in the decision on four of the charges. Afterwards, prosecutors dropped the case.
