Troubling Times

In the past week we, as a nation, have mourned 5 servicemen killed at a recruiting center in Tennessee. Senseless violence. Just last night in Louisiana , a gunman opened fire in a movie theater killing at least two and wounding several others. These are just a couple of horrific events that have occurred in our nation in recent days. Here in my town, a suburb of Atlanta, we are fortunate that our crime rates have always been lower than other nearby areas. This two has changed in recent days. Just this past week a security guard, working on a local movie set. was kidnapped and sexual assaulted. Her attackers, all teenagers, have been apprehended. One suspect's father saw the news report and turned him in. We have also had three incidents by a group of males, where the victims are robbed. In recent weeks we also had a guy shoot and kill two people, wound several others, including his parents, before killing himself.  We are very fortunate that our city police department and county sheriff's department  take crime seriously. They also work to be proactive with in our community. They, however, cannot do this alone. We have to be proactive and observant citizens. It is our obligation to notify law enforcement if we see something going on that might endanger others. We cannot stop all crime before it happens, but we can be an ally  for those that protect and serve .
