Supporting Law Enforcement

I fully support law enforcement, the thin blue line between us and anarchy, believing it should focus on preventing all criminal behavior in our community. The causes of criminal behavior should be secondary and perhaps the purview of other programs. That doesn’t mean enforcement can’t be done without compassion, especially for those unable to understand their actions (the mentally ill), those victims of adverse circumstances (the homeless), those who can’t break out of a limited mental mindset (the addicted), and those of limited experience who can learn from their mistakes.  However, they as well as the rest of us benefit just as much if not more from equal enforcement of the rule of law.

I've also written a 600 word "As I See It" article for the Gazette, with a lot more details, which I will post after it's printed.
