To the Editor:
I am getting tired of our country catering to Black Lives Matter.
ALL lives matter and that should be our country’s focus. It is very sad what has happened to the oath our officers take to enforce the law and changes have to be made. Why are people being allowed to destroy our history by demolishing statues and businesses? The police and national guard should have been out in full force and given a warning you destroy you will be arrested and prosecuted. We live in “America the Beautiful,” but don’t feel it anymore.
Why is our government allowing CHOP to take over streets and create their own government? Allowing homeless to continue to live on our streets? All Americans need to unite to take back America in peace and make it beautiful again. We need to be kinder to one another and the people who think they are entitled need to support our government not destroy it. Each local government needs to step up and fix these problems. Hope we can find a common ground that all people can live together. Our government should not be passive as they have been. Police standing down during the destruction of our communities should never have happened. Enforce the law.
It is not an easy task, but we need to get it done.
