It makes me feel good to know that our local police are on the job and they are earning the salary that they are paid. Our children are safe and they don’t have to worry about their safety, knowing that a police officer is on duty and ready to respond to any emergency which may occur.
However, I did note one police action that did impress me. The was a police car on a traffic stop on First Street, but on approach I noted that it was a Highway Patrol Officer on the traffic stop. Where was the Gallipolis police?
When I arrived at Wal-Mart, there was the duty officer earning his pay and protecting the people of Gallipolis writing parking tickets for violation in the Walmart parking lot.
Like I said, it makes me feel good to know that our police force, the people who are sworn to protect and serve, are earning their salary and are on the job, even if it is only doing condescending tasks like writing parking tickets in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
