Press Release

COLUMBUS, OH. —U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement on the killing of Casey Christopher Goodson, Jr. by a Franklin County Sheriff’s deputy on Friday, December 4th:

“Like many in the community, I am at a loss of words over the killing of Casey Christopher Goodson, Jr. The circumstances surrounding his tragic death are upsetting and extremely unsettling because too many Black men in our community are dying or are the victims of unjustifiable, excessive force from the very people sworn to protect and serve all of us. I join Casey’s family, friends, and the entire community in demanding accountability and seeking justice for his senseless killing.”
