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

Dallas, TX - Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price voted to oppose a resolution...

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."

Price said that 'unjust police violence' was the cause of the terrorist attacks against law enforcement, according to Fox4.

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.

"'Until we start to recognize all life, then no life is more important than any other life,' Price said." I wonder if he's also Pro-Choice.

Ok so all the thugs that don't listen to officers and get shot dead should get no media attention because they bring it on themselves!!!

The SO down there should figure a way to make him feel unwanted. Why didn't the prosecutors retry him?

And the 5 officers who were killed providing protection for a BLM protest march, throwing themselves between the sniper and both black and white protesters? Does this fool think that they don't deserve to be honored? Who will he call, if he needs assistance in an emergency? He would have better served his community by remaining quiet.

This man should be grateful that I fear God. But I will save this article, and when this twisted, corrupt man meets his day, and some would honor him, I will remind them of his own words.

You politicians should all be ashamed of your selves. I want to start with the idiot that made the comment about nurses playing cards at work and now this. You talk about bigotry. These are at the top of my list. Or, is it just my list of the world's dumbest? I have been a nurse for 40 years, I have yet to play cards at work. Five years ago my son, a police officer, was shot and killed in the line of duty. I raised that man and I can assure you he did not ask the P.O.S. that shot him to do so. Anybody, especially a politician with any decency about them would never make statements like this. Yes, they have freedom of speech, but some people should be put in a room with no escape and just talk to themselves. Just complete and utter ignorance.

You're absolutely right, Price - so you and your people's life aren't worth anything either. Guess those young black men deserved it too

I played for a fundraiser for the families of these officers the week after this happened. It was so very sad! Price is a POS and has no place in politics and is the biggest racist I've ever had the misfortune to meet. And why the hell did charges not get reinstated and go again. Hrs guilty and should be prosecuted!!

Good for Burger King.. Usually businesses cave to Political correctness and leftist popular sentiments. It's time we brought respect for authority and Law Enforcement back.

It's idiots like this who believe a piece of shit criminals life is equal to a law enforcement officer. That's why the dirtbags have free reign to murder. I remember when you got the death penalty when you killed police because they decided if you are willing to kill a cop, nobody is safe. Now it's open season because of libtards.

He should be removed from Office. And, I hope someone breaks in and steals everything from his home. Then he can call Black Lives Matter to investigate; because he sure as Hell shouldn't call the Police. Let's see how that works out for him!

"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."

To those disappointed in his verbal commentary and in the above legal outcome--- Both have shown what this lowlife is all about. He will make more mistakes and it may be the next which does him in or hopefully the one after that. He can't help it as it is what he does. There are no values, no morals ,no ethics, no decency......He makes outrageous racially divisive statements, cannot consider a situation and keep his personal racial bias out of the decision , does not consider all of his voters when making these statements, stealing while in office, lying about the theft.....and this is only what is currently known about him. What is it which isn't yet known? These behaviors are nothing new among blacks. You have seen it before many times. To those who continue to look the other way when voting and think you will " give this person a chance" - remember this POS as this is just another example of why you shouldn't vote for them. They just cannot help themselves.

I'll bet he's a follower of "THE HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN" Notice his bow tie and couple that with his attitude and past statements. Read the Wikipedia report about him, he's a rotten, violent, profane, "Black Supremacist" and money hungry thief/con man.

Blacks in positions of power have become a dangerous thing. Two blacks on the Elgin city counsel want this LEO fired for doing his job even after being cleared by several agencies.

This bum needs a hard lesson. When gunfire erupts on his street at his house, the police need not respond since their potential death defending him would be their own fault. Let this scumbag fend for himself!

Seems to me Blue Lives Matter a little more than most. If not for these brave men san women running to the problem not away , our asses would be in big trouble.I will go here, and take it or leave it. My opinion, which is important to me , is that big cities run by Demorats are all petrie dishes for ghetto's, gangs, rapes, robberies, murders, car jacking and home invasions. The word Democrat is indicative of corruption. There is always the B.S. cry of more blacks are stopped, or in prison, or killed than whites.Well that is because they commit more damn crimes.That "Country Commissoner" has been called corrupt, and you had a hung jury! Try his Bet the farm he will pull out the race card. arrogant ass again! Myself I don't know why anyone would want to a Cop in this atmosphere. The thugs are never guilty in the eyes of SOME. My hat is off to the Police. Thanks for all you do, sacrifice, and put up with.

I am sick of all these black racists in high profile public positions. Got 2 of them here in my home town. The only 2 black members of our city counsel want a police officer fired for doing his job, because he had to shoot a person of color. https://nationalpolice.org/ask-elgin-il-to-reinstate-police-lt-christian-jensen/?fbclid=IwAR1KrRUTKEuox9V29rZ141cU_rLi9cXcWl1gWLtDr-w2unwkag7hDqTpziM Did I mention Chicago's mayor blames Trump for the recent mass shootings? Tired of these racist blacks getting away with all these racist rants. I am also tired of them forgetting about the fact that young black males have a crime rate 35 times that of the white population. (FBI statistics)

Reporting what he said is the wrong thing to do, don't give him notoriety. Maybe his hair is screwed too tight, causing blood shortage to his brain.

I am apalled at the lack of respect he is showing our Officers in Blue! Our 1st responders! He is saying the Criminal deserves as much respect as the The Officers trying to protect us? I am SO over "Politicians" who are making up BS just to get "unwarranted" attention! That is ALL this is! Attention! Im Done! God Help us All!
