EL PASO TEXAS - El Paso leaders are seeking support from Mayor Oscar Leeser and the El Paso City Council following controversial comments made by El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen. Chief Allen made the comment after a press conference on Friday when asked about a Black Lives Matter vigil taking place in downtown El Paso on Sunday. "Black Lives Matter, as far as I am concerned, is a radical hate group, and for that purpose alone, I think the leadership of this country needs to look a little harder at that group. The consequences of what we saw in Dallas is due to their efforts," Allen told reporters.
