Delaware Council Issues Quote Addressing Violence at the Capitol Building on Jan. 6

 Home / Departments / Public Relations Releases / Delaware Council Issues Quote Addressing Violence at the Capitol Building on Jan. 6

Released: January 7, 2021

Our country allows everyone to freely express their beliefs and protest peacefully. However, what we witnessed in D.C. was not an expression of peaceful protesting. Violence is unacceptable. The election may not have delivered the result sought by some, but that doesn’t entitle one to make up baseless allegations of fraud, which are repeatedly refuted with actual evidence, and then turn to violence because they are not getting the result they desire. Democracy, our Constitution and the rule of law need to be more important than a demagogue. This behavior is shameful. The message to those who choose to behave this way: Act like our children are watching. Because they ARE.
