Letter: Night to Unite is just what we need

To the editor:

Concerning the Night to Unite event that took place Aug. 1 — I think it is a great idea that we are supporting our police officers and other officials. It is hard these days for police officers to get any recognition for all the good they have done in light of the few bad events that have occurred with a few officers. The total impact it leaves on our crime-fighting companions is not appropriate and, frankly, offensive to those who have given their lives to further protect our country.

So I believe with utmost sincerity that not only is having a “Night to Unite” a great idea, I think that it could be a way to bring police officers back into the daily lives of every community and ultimately bring a perfect partnership between the protectors and the protected.
