Foot patrol needed here

TAHLEQUAH — Editor, Daily Press:

Folks are putting in [the Press] their pride for the police department. If all was so fine, why did we get a new chief?

I will give you a dollar for each time you see a regular patrol on your street. Cars have been vandalized, property stolen, a senior citizen’s door was kicked in. She was robbed while in the hospital.

In the daytime, lunch time is a good time for these crimes. Go to the local chow house and then you’ll know you got time to do the crime.

Praise the Lord for the preacher’s fine words [Buddy Hunt, Readers’ Forum], but they don’t make our town safer. That goes back to the good ol’ boys’ defense. Restaurants serve lots of calories

 Foot patrol on our streets would do us all a lot of good.

Do you feel safe to go away and leave your home alone?

Sweep your own porch before you tell me mine is dirty.

Road rage. [It is] terrifying to have a gun pointed at you when you are obeying traffic rules.
