It has been reported by some that chaos has taken place in Philadelphia, but that chaos is part of a greater problem that exists throughout this country, even taking place in this community of Maricopa and surrounding areas in some form or fashion. It is sad that normal everyday individuals can’t expect the safety and security in their lives that they deserve. Yet many keep allowing this type of activity to take place by their complacency.
It is time that concerned individuals stand up peacefully if possible and vehemently protest these violent acts that are prevalent through open and non-violent debate, if elections seem to fail in backing the right candidate who honestly has the public's back. An action or peaceful protest against these types of occurrences would address the reasons and at least hold the proper authorities responsible for allowing such acts, and furthermore, ensuring those authorities have the ability through intelligence to act upon such events engaged in by some, and seeing clearly what drives those perpetrating such activities, such as their mental health or economic factors, which may exist in some form.
It has to be remembered that we as a society created such agencies to exist in the first place, for our mutual protection and safety. Further noting, it is some elected officials themselves who place all of us at some kind of risk.
A side note to this statement, everyone should be thankful there are those that wish to protect and serve us all, acknowledging there are always at least some bad actors in every organization, but as a rule the men and women who serve are dedicated individuals that deserve the respect by everyone including respecting those who serve in the nation's armed forces.
