The BSO Public Information Office is currently working a developing incident regarding a Sheriff Gregory Tony statement on MSD verdict located at: n/a.

Public Information Officer Veda Coleman-Wright is currently gathering the details. Here’s what we know so far:


The statement below is from Sheriff Gregory Tony in response to today’s verdict.

“I was hopefully optimistic that today’s verdict would provide equitable justice and a degree of closure for the victims’ family members.

The evidence provided in this case was overwhelming, and the nature of the defendant’s atrocities demonstrated a deliberate and calculated act of unprecedented violence on helpless unarmed children and adults.

Despite the fact that the defendant slaughtered 17 innocent people without any remorse, the jury chose to spare his life. I disagree with their verdict.

In my opinion, every aspect of our criminal justice system collectively failed the victims and their families. Today, the victims’ families were re-victimized.”
