WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today spoke on the floor of the U.S. Senate to honor Louisiana law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty, including East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Sgt. Shawn Anderson.

“Please join me in saying a prayer for these law enforcement officers and their families.  They were sons, they were fathers who will miss out on birthdays, holidays and graduations,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “They were men who sacrificed their lives so we can sleep a little bit better.  Let us also pray for an end to the violence.  We've had enough flashing blue lights lighting up the dark nights in Louisiana.”
