We are appalled at the incident yesterday in Washington, DC, where members of the Republican baseball team were shot and injured.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was critically injured, and four others were wounded.
Reports are coming in that the shooter was an Illinois resident who was injured during a shootout with police at the scene. He has since died. The shootings may have been politically motivated.
Indivisible Central Florida condemns this use of violence. We are a country of laws, and a country where civil discourse and non-violent protest are the best ways to make one’s voice heard. We will continue to use these methods to express our political opinions.
One demented individual does not represent a movement, a religion, or an ethnicity, and this shooter does not represent us or our Resistance to the Trump administration.
Our sympathies and good wishes go out to the victims of the rampage, and their families and loved ones.
