The NAACP Houston Branch Condemns Shooting of Harris County Deputy Darren H. Goforth says Dr. James Douglas

Dr. James Douglas, NAACP Houston Branch President said, “We do not condone the killing of law enforcement in any situation and any and all individuals involved in the said action should be held accountable for the senseless shooting of the deputy”. 

The NAACP Houston Branch Condemns Shooting of Harris County Deputy 

The NAACP Houston Branch condemns last week’s killing of Harris County Deputy Darren H. Goforth. 

Dr. James Douglas, NAACP Houston Branch President said, “We do not condone the killing of law enforcement in any situation and any and all individuals involved in the said action should be held accountable for the senseless shooting of the deputy”. 

While we do not condone the senseless killing of Deputy Goforth, we also do not condone the inflammatory statements made by both Sheriff Hickman and District Attorney Anderson. The insinuation by Sheriff Hickman that the Black Lives Matter movement played a role in the killing of Deputy Goforth is not only inaccurate, but totally improper (especially in light of the fact that no established motive has been determined at this time). Additionally, the reference by District Attorney Anderson of “the silent majority”, harkens back to President Richard Nixon’s use of the term as a political wedge to divide the black and white community. Inflammatory language such as that used by the District Attorney and Sheriff further enflames an already volatile situation. 

Dr. Douglas suggests that further investigation and prosecution of the individual involved should be continued and asks that the Harris County officials be more responsible in their rhetoric regarding incidents of this nature. “If we are to come together in this city, we must learn to respect the rights of all its citizens”.
