State Rep. Garrett on Death and Injury of Detroit Police Officers

Thursday, November 21, 2019

“Each and every day our courageous and dedicated men and women in law enforcement put their lives on the line to protect and serve our beloved community. Officer McClain was a remarkable example of selflessness and bravery, and made the ultimate sacrifice as the result of a senseless act of violence that also critically injured his partner, Officer Phillippe Batoum-Bisse, who we all wish a speedy recovery. We must keep fighting to end this cycle of violence in Detroit.

“Today, I join with our community members and all Michiganders in expressing our deep condolences to Officer McClain’s family and his fellow officers; we all are praying for strength for each family, and share a sincere appreciation for the honorable service of both officers to the citizens of Detroit.”
