August 13, 2020

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt released the following statement on the announcement that criminal charges have been brought against the alleged perpetrator in the shooting death of four-year-old LeGend Taliferro:    

“One of the tragedies in the violence we see today is the loss of lives unlived. While there is nothing that will fully heal the heartbreak LeGend Taliferro’s family has suffered, I am glad they are one step closer to getting the justice they deserve. Operation LeGend is taking violent criminals off the street and putting them behind bars where they belong. I thank the local and federal law enforcement officials who are working day in and day out to make communities safer. I hope that, as Operation LeGend continues in Kansas City, St. Louis, and other cities, more families will get the justice they all deserve.”
