On Friday, we began discussing a particular meeting in Pittsfield where law enforcement made an unfortunate declaration about gang-related violence.
It would appear that the local police department is waiving the fear-mongering flag of “gang violence” without much of a basis and is relying on the stale standard chorus of “just trust us…we don’t really have the time to be up front”.
When one looks between the lines…one sees the questionable basis.
Few people, however, look between this lines, especially when the alleged danger seems so great. They tend to simply take the advice of law enforcement.
“Just trust us”.
