War on drugs continues to create casualties

Editor,

Profound condolences for all the officers and their families recently suffering a loss. Their lives are so sadly disrupted by such an ongoing problem, this endless drug war. So many casualties of a war with no end in sight. It's a sad reality for all concerned.

With all respect and appreciation for our police and all serving the law, there must be a way to serve a warrant to persons of suspicion.

Unfortunately, now the suspect is an alleged killer, a shooter who shot at our police and killed another human being. He was somebody's son, husband, daddy and friend. This loved one is forever gone away.

Drugs are here and whether legal or illegal, it just continues to destroy families. Let's all keep praying for this war to end.
