Two-Sided Equation

Police Week 2022

As loudly as I can say this: THANK GOD for our law enforcement officers. It’s National Police Week. I don’t mean to sound like a broken record when it comes to supporting law enforcement, but I think we’re living in odd times right now: Across the nation, too many categories of violent crime are on the rise.
