SENATOR DAVIS ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING FORT WORTH POLICE DEPARTMENT REPORT ON RAINBOW LOUNGE

Senator Wendy R. Davis today issued the following statement:

"While I appreciate the work Chief Halstead and his department have thus far put into investigating the incident at the Rainbow Lounge, I am also hopeful that they will view today's report as a beginning of the process and not an end.

It is essential to rebuild the public trust between police officers and the community they are tasked with protecting. To that end the citizens of Tarrant County, as well as the majority of officers who conscientiously serve and protect their communities, deserve to know that all evidence has been considered and appropriate actions have been taken, both to hold individuals accountable for their actions and to prevent future incidents."
