PLEASANTON – Senator Peter P. Flores issued the following statement:

"I stand with my fellow Americans when I say what happened to George Floyd was wrong. Our system of justice will prevail and hold those guilty of wrongdoing responsible. The rights we all have for peaceful protest is protected and promoted in this country under the First Amendment. I strongly support people acting lawfully to express themselves and I will continue to work hard to uphold our Constitution.

"I strongly condemn those who unlawfully riot and attack innocent people, destroy businesses and hurt our communities. They are to be held criminally responsible for their actions. The rule of law applies to us all. I thank all of our first responders and Law Enforcement Officers for their continued service and dedication to serve each of us."
