Thank you Chief Wagner for your concern about creating a dangerous situation but you've had your chance to correct the problem. Apparently the citizens believe they can have a more direct effect on crime, and I, for one support and applaude them. As far as your fear that someone is going to get into trouble or hurt, your own statistics show that there is already trouble there ( 653 arrests in Royal Poinciana since January.)Police Chief Chad Wagner, a task force member, said the neighborhood has the right to arm itself, but he's concerned about creating a dangerous situation.
"I am strong advocate of the Second Amendment, but you can go from being a victim to someone being prosecuted very easily," he said. "My fear is that someone is going to get into trouble, or hurt."
Why is it that the powers that be do not trust the people to know what is right and to do what is right? As if I don't already know. Perhaps the people may just be right. Oh my god... now what.
