BEND, OREGON -- District Attorney John Hummel says he was inspired by the turnout at the protests in Central Oregon. He states that the attendance was more than he had seen in his twenty plus years of living here and that he was proud of the handful more protest events that popped up around the community. In reaction to the killing of George Floyd, Hummel says that the dismantling and abolishing of police departments is extreme because the public still needs law enforcement to protect citizens in need. The DA suggests redistributing funds from the police department to other government services such as health care and education.
