Letter to the Editor,

Regarding the article: Five shot leaving two in critical condition.

The article is disturbing, another comment on the lawless and dangerous society of Union Springs​,​ Alabama. Episodes of this type of conduct occur daily here in metro Atlanta and are hardly a distraction to daily life. I just don’t go there anymore and avoid the danger. I do come to USA often, have been doing so for 76 years!

My​ most favorite place to be is now a place where I feel unsafe and sometimes threatened. I have had several break inns and burglaries.Never had any serious investigations or any return of stolen property.That’s bad enough; but allowing these armed thugs to roam around, shooting at will is absolutely despicable. Law enforcement seems helpless or disinterested.
