Responding to ACLU of NJ Executive Director Udi Ofer’s call for the Attorney General to investigate the appropriate use of force at the event, Rible issued the following statement:

“It is irresponsible to call for an investigation into law enforcement officers who were simply doing the job they were asked to do, which was to break up an already ongoing riot and protect innocent bystanders,” Assemblyman Rible said. “We need to stop continuously placing the blame on our law enforcement and instead come together to show our support for those who were sworn in to protect and serve the public.”

Assemblyman Rible continued, “While there are certainly bad characters in every profession, we must not denigrate all of our law enforcement officers. In our increasingly dangerous world, we should not be undermining our officers’ ability to properly protect us and themselves. Instead, we need to target the bad actors who created this dangerous situation in the first place.”
