Sheriff showing swift results

  • Follow Letters

Our new Richmond County sheriff, Richard Roundtree, has won my respect and admiration because of his already productive, pro-active community policing in my Harrisburg neighborhood.

The difference between our neighborhood is like night and day!

Drug houses have been promptly abated starting the week after Sheriff Roundtree took office!

Sheriff Roundtree is promptly doing that which needed to be done for the past decade to clean up Harrisburg.

If this trend continues and includes all of Augusta, Augusta will gain a reputation nationally for being a good, safe place to live.

People will want to move here, companies will want to invest here and everyone who is willing to work will prosper!

I hope the sheriff keeps up

I hope the sheriff keeps up the good work of rounding up all the dead beat criminals but where will he put them. You know where the largest majority of the crime is so I wonder if he will be called racist. I hope people are smarter than that.

Butch, I am glad your

Butch, I am glad your neighborhood is getting some help. I know you have sorely needed something to be done and I give Sheriff Roundtree credit for his action in your area. I will say that I have not seem as many patrol cars out in my area of southeast Richmond county but that could be because of the emphasis on Hwy 56. Couldn't catch a cop out in front of my house with a doughnut baited trap.

That's all good...

as long as we don't get a letter signed "Loving Mother".

Well, Darby, if that

Well, Darby, if that happened, it wouldn't be Roundtree, he wasn't "Loving Mother", it was "Grateful Mother". Your attempt at snark fell flat.

But it's high time that somebody cleaned out the drug houses, Strength was not nearly as well-regarded as some would have you believe. Roundtree can write all the posts he wants to if he does something to turn around the cesspool of crime in Augusta, it's long overdue. He can call himself anything he wants if he runs the drughouses out, he could call himself Superman and that would be ok with me.

Strength was reactive and

Strength was reactive and Sanders RAN on a plan to continue that approach. Roundtree has brought in fresh air and professionalism to boot (good ol' boys be damned).,

"if that happened, it wouldn't...

be Roundtree, he wasn'g 'Loving Mother' "

.

Sorry Corgimom, but I wrote exactly what I intended to write. I approached the subject obliquely, using a similar but not exact match for Roundtree's last attempt, suggesting that he would be at least as clumsy but still smart enough to not repeat his last faux pas exactly.

Sorry if my attempt to be subtle went over your head.

On the other hand, it looks like your effort at a put down was what "fell flat".

"Roundtree can write all the...

posts he wants to if he does something to turn around the cesspool of crime in Augusta.."
.

I wholeheartedly agree, but will wait at least a year before I would be tempted to begin to write letters of praise and commendation.

If he's still riding high after twelve months, he'll have my support. If he backslides into his former performance record......

Just call me a skeptic....

Has anyone else noticed that...

when a poster uses logic, the libs/progs on these pages have nothing to say, and can only resort to the "thumbs down" approach.

Sticks and stones......
