Obama and Bush speak at Dallas memorial service

Posted By on Tue, Jul 12, 2016 at 2:27 PM

President Obama and former President George W. Bush spoke at a memorial service in Dallas today for police officers slain during a demonstration about police use of force against black suspects.

The emphasis was on shared beliefs, not division; service, and sacrifice.

Coverage here. Quotable:

Obama: “We ask the police to do too much, and we ask too little of ourselves."

Bush: "Too often we judge other groups by their worst examples, but judge ourselves by our best intentions."
