Since May, Albert said he has watched news accounts of violent riots, “arson, mob rule and attacks against law enforcement.”
“I was saddened and enraged by the murder of David Dorn, a 77-year-old African American retired police captain, who was shot by a pawn shop looter during a protest in St. Louis,” Albert said. “These outrageous, lawless acts have been met with silence, acquiescence and, in some instances, outright support from the local, state and national leadership of the Democratic Party.”
He added that he believes the Republican Party stands for “unwavering support for our law enforcement and first responders.”
“As a lifelong public servant and member of law enforcement, I have not left the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party has left me,” Albert said.
