Peace March, or Police?

Sen. Thaao Dill, along with his employer HOTT 107.5, is organizing a peace rally on 31 August to protest violence. I think that will be a positive event. Bermudians need to stand together against the violence in their community and make it clear that they will tolerate neither violence nor those who perpetrate violence.

But, I am disappointed that the good Senator has nothing more to offer. Some might say I am being too hard on him, but I have extremely high expectations from my Government, and I know that peace rallies won't be sufficient too stop the violence. Criminals need to know that they will be caught and prosecuted, and that requires police & prosecutors.

I've said it many times before, and I hate to be a bore, but why can't our Government get it together and sort out whatever issues they have with the Police? And I don't want to hear that excuse about the Governor again: he doesn't pay them, Senator Burch does. And he doesn't seem willing to pay them right now...

This I like. Do you mind if I respond on my own blog linking to this one? It gives me more space to write.
