Rep. Pressley Statement in Support of Suffolk County DA Rachael Rollins

WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (MA-07) released the following statement in support of Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins:

“Our District Attorney Rachael Rollins has earned the deep trust of families, advocates, and officers across Suffolk County. Her command of the law and her precise sense of true justice and accountability are unmatched. The tactics of the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association are predictable but deeply disappointing. The BPPA’s unfounded attacks put the DA at risk, but will not derail for a moment her tireless and disciplined work to lead us towards a more just and humane legal system that centers the dignity and humanity of the people we have all sworn to serve and protect. The Patrolmen’s Association should immediately issue an apology to our District Attorney. In a time of national crisis, when Black men and women are disproportionately dying in police custody, the BPPA should be at the table humbly working to chart a path forward, not tearing down a Black woman in leadership and putting her life at further risk.”
