Law enforcement needs your help
Salisbury actually seems serious about reducing its drug violence. President Trump’s wall and additional border patrol “will” decimate the Mexican drug cartels, where most of Salisbury’s — and other cities’ — violence stems from. Of course the press will spin it.
Speaking of our illustrious news media, “The Federalist” lists 13 “fake news stories” about the Trump Administration since inauguration day. They are, indeed, the people’s enemy!
On CBS’s WBTV News this evening a spokesman for the Charlotte/Meck Police Department stated that their department would not be co-operating with federal immigration laws. Sounds like that loony mayor again. Foolishness seems to be her forte’. Here’s the “playing with fire” lunacy in that. After all the wailing and gnashing of teeth from the Democrats over losing money due to HB2 — aka child safety bill — Charlotte has decided to call President Trump’s bluff concerning withholding millions of federal dollars that annually pour into that city. The odds of this administration not stripping Charlotte’s money are about the same as Mr. Ed beating Secretariat at Belmont in 1973.
Back to Salisbury. The brave men and women of the Salisbury Police Department — in fact, all law enforcement personnel of Rowan and Cabarrus — are more than capable of shutting down the majority of any city’s violence. They are not getting the help they so richly deserve — for putting their lives on the line every day — to protect the very people who refuse to simply pick up a phone and anonymously call Crime Stoppers to help stop the carnage. If you want to continue living in a war zone, that’s your decision. We have the White House, help’s on the way!
