Young Statement on Shootings in Texas and Ohio

INDIANAPOLIS – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today issued the following statement regarding the shootings this weekend in Texas and Ohio:


“We are all heartbroken for the victims of these terrible acts of hate. I pray for those who were injured and for the families of those who lost loved ones. And I am sincerely grateful to the first responders and law enforcement officers who acted swiftly. There is no place in this country for hate of any kind – period.


“The President rightfully spoke out against acts of racially motivated violence and we must, as a nation, do more. That starts by grappling with the underlying disease in our communities: ideologies of hate, mental derangement, and a loss of respect for human life.”
