Proud of the BPD

Dear Editor,

It seems every time I pick up the paper, there has been another drug arrest by the Bogalusa Police Department. This makes me proud of the men and women of the BPD. At the same time, it saddens me to see another generation being held slaves to drugs, seemingly happy to not accumulate any worldly goods, while the drug pusher has nice cars, homes and clothes. The drug user will do whatever it takes to get the next high, even if it means stealing from family and friends.

If you have kids or grandkids, don’t be afraid to talk to them about the dangers of drugs. You can bet someone who wants to turn a profit on your kids will be glad to talk to them about drugs.

The people who call in tips to the police are making a statement: “I’m tired as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” And I’m proud of them. Also, now when are the rest of you going to say the same thing? When you have had a belly full of it, call in a tip and I’m sure Chief Bullen or Sheriff Seal will have their guys follow through.

In closing, I’d like to call on every good and decent person in this area to keep our first responders in your prayers. They go out and face danger, so you don’t have to.
