Rep. Bourdeaux Statement on Atlanta Murders
Today, United States Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) released the following statement after the murder last night of eight victims across three spa parlors across the metro Atlanta area:
"Like so many across our country, I watched in horror last night as news broke of the murder of eight people in the Atlanta area," said Congresswoman Bourdeaux. "Six of the victims were Asian-American women, coming after weeks of vitriol and violence against the Asian-American community in the United States. While we wait for further investigation into the motivations of this attack, my heart goes out to the victims' families and loved ones, and I thank the Atlanta Police Department for swiftly apprehending the suspected killer. Today, our greater Atlanta community is in mourning, but we know this: hate will not stand. Violence will not stand."
