Let's get along

Police officers are not only cops; they are counselors and referees. The job can be overwhelming.

Remember, when you dial 911, the police are there to help you — not to hurt you. I ask that all citizens respect the law and respect those who are here to protect and serve you.

Let's pay it forward. Let's offer coffee gift cards or thanks to officers. Please show your support. If you find yourself angry with the system, make a positive move — write a letter, speak your mind. Do not break the law.

There is much conflict today between officers and citizens. As citizens, we must learn that a positive note will always override a negative.

To the angry individuals out there, violence will not help any situation. Unhappy about our system? Then make a positive change.

I often wonder why individuals want to cause trouble. Our country has troubles; let us not add to them. Let's come together, make good changes. Do all in the name of love and pray for one another.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
