Grassley Statement on Slaying of Two Des Moines-Area Police Officers
U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today released the following statement regarding the killing in Iowa of two on-duty police officers overnight.
“Barbara and I are praying for the families, fellow officers and loved ones of two of Iowa’s finest today. These officers were killed in what appears to be an unprovoked and cold-blooded act.
“Every day, our law enforcement officers go to work to keep us safe. No matter the circumstances, they answer the call in communities across Iowa. We all keep the officers in Des Moines, Urbandale and throughout Iowa in our thoughts as they respond to an ongoing dangerous situation.”
