The Rt. Rev. Eugene Taylor Sutton,
Bishop of Maryland, writes in a statement on violence against police officers:
The targeting of police and first responders is not only deplorable, but an attack on the very fabric of the communities most in need of their help. We have many faithful Episcopalians in this diocese who serve as first responders: uniformed and active officers of the law; firefighters, both paid and volunteer; and members of local rescue squads, paid and volunteer. Others have retired from active service or have children and spouses serving in these helping professions. These folks willingly put themselves on the line to respond at all hours, and in all conditions. They are immensely dedicated to their work, and we applaud their courage and service.
Rise in Glory: Bp. Marble, 80
