We Simply Must Deal With the Violence

Our City reels with the news that Officer David Moore will not recover from injuries he sustained when he pulled a car over for a routine traffic stop on Sunday. Officer Moore, by all accounts exemplified all that is right with IMPD, a great friend, and all round nice person. His generosity of spirit continues with the donation of his organs, so that others might live.

As a City, as a community, we simply must deal with the violence that plagues us. We are 26 days into this new year and already have seen 9 homicides. Officer Moore will be our tenth.

Perhaps Officer Moore can do us one more favor, and serve as the catalyst for turning the tide that besets us.

My condolences to Officer Moore's family, friends, those he protected, and those with whom he served.
