STATEMENT ON ATLANTIC CITY FROM ATLANTIC COUNTY PROSECUTOR DAMON G. TYNER


ATLANTIC CITY- The following statement is from Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner, regarding incidents in Atlantic City this past weekend.

“As a native of Atlantic City, New Jersey, I experienced a range of emotions this past weekend as I witnessed the peaceful protest to George Floyd’s murder, and then the chaotic, opportunistic looting carried out by those who could care less about social justice. I am extremely disappointed in those individuals and their attack on our City.

As a result of the looting and destruction, 15 individuals were immediately arrested for a variety of offenses. Due to social media and other technology, more arrests will occur. The offenders will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

While I stand with peaceful protesters and honor civil disobedience, the actions carried out in no way represent a positive contribution to the dialogue necessary to effect real change in our country.”
