Press Release

Washington, D.C. —Today, Congressman Robert Aderholt, (AL-04) released the following statement in regard to the death of George Floyd and the protests and violence that have followed.

 

“The death of George Floyd is unacceptable, as anyone can see from the video that was taken at the scene. It is tragic. Many have turned to peaceful protest as a way to highlight this injustice.  Furthermore, peaceful protest is something we all respect and something that is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.  However, violent elements that are bent on theft and mindless destruction, in many cases toward the people they claim to care for, have no place in our society.”
