I know many readers already have their opinions, but I wonder if the police have an idea of the trend or general therme for these 22 deaths. I hope they do, as this can help identify areas of need and what can be done to mitigate future incidents. Sharing this information with community leaders is a must to develop strategies we can all live with. Our police departments are limited to what the people are willing to pay for, thus are only as good as the people they serve, so it is important to keep the people informed and involved.
