Statement from Oconee County Sheriff Mike Crenshaw in the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis:

(Walhalla, SC) “As Sheriff of Oconee County, I condemn the law enforcement actions that resulted in George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

These actions were outside the boundary of all law enforcement training and professional police conduct.

Any law enforcement officer using these tactics should and will be fully prosecuted under my watch.

My Office reviews any and all uses of force immediately to prevent any mistreatment.

Our rule of law is to be enforced fairly and equally toward everyone.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the Floyd family.”
