“This latest attack on our JMPD officers is not only an attack on government but an attack on our efforts to return the rule of law in our city. It is an attack on our residents, who are desperate to feel safe in their homes, communities, and streets,” Mashaba said.

“We will not let unscrupulous criminals hold us to ransom.”
