Don't take police for granted



Most of us would never put ourselves in harm’s way, knowing that a man with a gun might be approaching with evil intent. A few of us just did.

Local police were asked last week to block the highway heading into Electric City from the south because a man had threatened to shoot up the school in Coulee City.

He didn’t show up here; police caught him outside Soap Lake. But he could have, and police here had to be ready to defend the rest of us from an armed lunatic. Citizens shouldn’t take that for granted.
