We are watching you PDF Print

My first thoughts of this column were to write on the Susan G. Komen debacle. I think my opinion might have surprised you but now you’ll never know because it’s back to hugs and kisses in the matter.

Now on to more important things. You have read about some disturbing instances recently in the police reports. There have been numerous search warrants served on alleged drug traffickers and “drug houses” and several suspected overdoses in our fair city in the past month or so. Very concerning.

On the other hand, I found the way these persons of interest in drug dealings have been brought to the attention of our law enforcement friends heartening. Neighbors are paying attention and reporting what they find to be suspicious behavior.

We depend on the police to enforce our laws, keep us safe and make our community a better place to live. We need law and order to make our city attractive to business and industry and comfortable for the rest us law-abiding folk. We also have an obligation to be vigilant and assist them in keeping the order and preserving the peace.

We need to take a stand and take our city back. It is being overrun by those who have little care for the common good of the rest of us. They are very focused on themselves and their agenda.

Drugs make our neighborhoods undesirable to others. If you don’t want to live next door to a drug dealer, chances are no one else does, either. Go figure.

We need to let these people who choose to conduct themselves in such a manner know we will not tolerate it. I have a feeling that a few visits from the law will go a long way in keeping this demon at bay.

I know and you know we can’t completely keep things like this out of our community but we can make it so uncomfortable for them they may choose to go elsewhere.

We need to let drug dealers know we won’t stand for them plying their trade in our neighborhoods and to our children. They need to know that if they live in Delphos they had better be so careful no one notices anything because we are watching and now we are helping to change things — one house at a time.
