After reading the letter to the editor, A sad end to Mother’s Day, in last Monday’s edition, I would like to comment.
I have recently been in a similar situation and also felt attacked and abandoned by those who are supposedly here to serve and protect.
I too previously had great respect for our officers. Now, however, I find myself a little bitter and wonder if a great number of our officers couldn’t better serve our communities if their focus was more on apprehending criminals who are continually breaking our laws.
It seems to me that targeting those who are trying to be upstanding citizens, but who on occasion unintentionally break a law is an extreme waste of resources. Could it be that the focus is not to serve and protect at all, but more about the money generated?
