Common sense Safety and security


It is heartbreaking to see what is happening in Philadelphia and cities across America. Philadelphia had over 540 lives lost to murder in 2021, an all time high. This is what happens when laws are not enforced and good police officers are disrespected and defunded. Wrong headed policies put all of us at risk, but they especially hurt our most vulnerable. It is time that politicians who do not do their sworn jobs are held accountable.

New technologies, such as non-lethal robotic means of apprehending suspects need to be funded. The vast majority of our police are professional and well trained, but mistakes will occur when human emotions are mixed with dangerous events. Creating safe, effective, non-lethal methods to apprehend suspects will not only save the lives of many police officers but will also save the lives of many that are being apprehended.
