Governor orders flags to half staff

Gov. Matt Bevin has ordered the Kentucky state flag be flown at half-staff until sunset on Tuesday, July 12, 2016, as a mark of respect for the victims of the attack on police officers in Dallas, Texas.

“We are deeply offended and heartbroken by the cowardly assault on police officers in Dallas,” said Gov. Bevin. “As a society we must strongly condemn acts of violence against innocent lives, especially those who put their lives on the line to protect us. United we stand, divided we fall.”
