LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski has released a statement on Thursday regarding the attack on the Nation’s Capital that took place on January 6.
The statement read:
“Yesterday was a dark day for the United States of America and I want this community to know
my position on the events that took place at our Nation’s Capital. Those individuals that were
involved were not patriots of our country. They were not promoters of our democracy nor were
they promoters of what makes America the nation that it is."

"Those acts yesterday were crimes. The storming of the Capital is unacceptable. That type of
activity jeopardizes our very own democracy, and the very way of life, we have all come to
cherish. Those acts of crimes should be prosecuted and all of us have a duty to stand up and
be heard that it is not acceptable and we will not accept this as the new normal.”
