Re: Renewed talks of regional police, Nov. 14.
Justice Minister Suzanne Anton says the “goal is to retain and support community-based policing.”
I have great respect and thankfulness for our RCMP.
Every morning, when I turn on the news, it is shooting, stabbing, robbing, abuse or drugs and drunken driving. What a challenge each day for our protectors, the police.
We are to obey the law.
The Bible says: Do good works and you will have praise, but if you do evil, you will suffer fear. “Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.” Therefore, love is the fulfillment of the law.
The commandments say: “You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not lie, you shall not covet, you shall do unto others as you would have them do to you, you shall love your neighbour.”
It is too bad that the Ten Commandments were taken out of the schools, because now some children do not know right from wrong. They start out young, stealing, fighting and bullying.
Consequently, more police have to be added to the force.
I honour and appreciate our police and thank them for the hours of multiple services and protection they bravely give us. May God protect and bless each of them.
