CARSON STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF OFFICER MOORE
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman André Carson released the following statement on the passing of Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Officer David Moore:
"The collective heart of our beloved city sank today when Officer David Moore passed away this morning. After answering his community's call to service, Officer Moore is now moving on to a higher calling, as difficult as it may be for all of us see him go.
"There's no doubt Officer Moore knew the dangers of police work, as both of his parents were part of the IMPD family. But like so many who wear the badge in communities across our nation, David Moore took an oath to serve and protect others. To run to danger-not away from it. Officer Moore did just that, and our community is better and safer because of his service and sacrifice.
"In honor of Officer Moore, let us never forget the daily sacrifices our law enforcement officers make in order to protect our families and neighborhoods. This week, I've asked my colleagues in Congress to pay respect to Officer Moore by going back to their districts and thanking their local law enforcement officers for the work they do and the daily dangers they place themselves in to protect us all.
"Mariama and I join the entire City of Indianapolis in mourning the loss of this hero. And we'll continue to keep Officer Moore's family and the entire police department in our thoughts and prayers."
