Michael Letts discusses law-enforcement on Yonkers Tribune.
He states, “The priority for police should be simple: They are law enforcement officers.
Law enforcement should be the police forces’ number one priority, but it no longer is. Now, police are being asked to act as community liaisons, encourage diversity, fight racism, perform security checks on businesses, not hurt anyone, and more. Now, don’t get me wrong. These are all fine things that would be wonderful for the police to do. Unfortunately, however, the groups that tend to force these duties on the police want them to be their top priority, and what winds up getting pushed down the list of priorities is actual law enforcement.”
