Gansler Statement on Ambush of Baltimore Police Officer

ROCKVILLE, Md. — Former Attorney General Doug Gansler, a Democrat who is running for governor on his proven record of taking bold action to deliver real results for the people of Maryland, today released the following statement on this morning’s ambush of a Baltimore police officer:

“As a federal, state and local prosecutor for 22 years, it always deeply pains me to see those who literally risk their lives to keep us safe being gunned down in cold blood. Every time that a truly evil person shoots at a law enforcement officer, it signifies that we still have a long way to go towards bridging the trust gap between law enforcement and the communities they serve. I am praying for the full and speedy recovery of the Baltimore officer who was ambushed early this morning. I hope that whoever committed this cowardly act is swiftly brought to justice.”
