No longer Mayberry

Where was this officer’s back up? Why are there not two police officers riding together on patrol? With the increase of shady characters and the increase in drugs in the area it has become unsafe for anyone. This incident could have become very ugly. The officer used great restraint in not shooting the offender; it could have been a disaster had he taken his weapon. We citizens need our officers protected as well as its citizens. The Mount Carmel area is no longer Mayberry RFD, it’s downtown Detroit!
