Letter to the Editor: Democrats Make Us Unsafe? What About Jan. 6, Uvalde?


This letter is a rebuttal of former sheriff John McCroskey’s opinion piece for The Chronicle on Sept. 21 saying Democrats make us less safe.

Since McCroskey wants to paint one party with a broad brush, I’ll return the favor. The Republicans injured and killed police officers at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Republicans are attacking our top law enforcement agency, the FBI.

Republican Governor Greg Abbott did not keep the kids at Uvalde safe and has done nothing since then.

Maybe we should take the time to get to know individual candidates and not take a swipe at everyone from one party. Attend debates, go to their events, do your research.
