Dear Editor

Dear Editor:

First, I would like to say that I am 100% for Chief Randy Davenport. I have called him several times, mostly for others, and have always had a very good response. The issues I called about were handled in a very professional manner and resolved quickly.

I have been followed home at night more than once by a police officer and when I pull safely into my driveway they go on about their business. This I appreciate.

I am sure there are issues that need to be addressed, but at other times it is only normal that we do not like being reprimanded, even though we know we are guilty. Some of us think our children and grandchildren can do no wrong.

Secondly, I have heard some people say Chief is racist. I find this completely absurd. How could he be racist when he has a black man as an officer and several good friends that are black.

Sometimes we need to look through the thorns of a rose bush to see the roses and as an old saying goes “the one who does nothing is the one who makes no mistakes.”

Thank you, Clara Grace Sherrill
