Letter: Luckey faces court of public opinion after party
The police and the Salisbury Post seem to want to try Thelma Luckey in the court of public opinion, also known as the front page. I have known Thelma for more than 40 years. No finer person exists.
I couldn’t agree more with Bonnie Graham’s letter published on Jan. 29 (“Luckey will be found loving her Lord, helping others”).
The Post cites the police as responding to a disorderly crowd in her parking lot in August. Really? Is there a place in the West End the police haven’t responded to?
What about across town, at Walmart? The police practically live there. Are they going to shut it down? If so, what would be left of Salisbury?
Given the abnormally high number of shootings, killings and murders in Salisbury, why not shut down this entire crime center?
Let’s see how long it takes commissioners to locate another, quality family restaurant willing to chance the high-crime area of the building they own?
Where’s the NAACP, the other businesses and civic organizations when a woman like Thelma needs help?
It seems like many of us will be eating out of town now, unless we want to say prayers late into the night after our meal.
