Letter: Follow the letter of the law and people will stay safe

Follow the letter of the law and people will stay safe

Regarding all the news lately about white cops killing black males and vice versa, it is a policeman’s duty to look for and investigate situations out of the norm. For instance, a man selling videos in front of a convenience store or a broken taillight on a car. I don’t think the color of the person mattered in each situation.

If you are going to do something illegal, unauthorized or suspicious, a policeman is going to question you. Should you be shot over it? Absolutely not. The police shootings in Dallas are going to make law enforcement officers even more suspicious of people of color and maybe put a stop to all these protests.

Don’t break the law and obey the rules of society and maybe things will change.
