What about the reign of terror taking place in parts of the city where gangs have power and innocent lives are frequently lost? It is deeply saddening that only when one of their own is threatened do we see this level of mobilization by the police.
Of course this rampage must be stopped, but so too should the rampant gun violence threatening the rest of us. We're all in this together.
I want to thank and applaud all law enforcement professionals who are faced with increasingly violent and bizarre criminal activity. I'm sure that I am not the only person who wonders if the world is going crazy, but I take comfort in knowing that there are dedicated professionals who can be called on to enforce and restore law and order.
Thank you. You are appreciated.
