Whine, whine, whine

To the editor:

The letters to the editor lately about being ticketed for speeding and running a stop sign are prime examples of what is happening in this country today.

People don’t want to follow the rules and obey the laws.

Our children are growing up in a society where they learn that it is OK to bend the rules.
Consequently we have more disrespect, delinquency and violence. So to the person who exceeded the posted speed limit and the person who rolled through a stop sign – obey the law.

Don’t whine about the law enforcement officer as they are only doing their job that we expect them to do – protect, serve and enforce the law.

So, I say to you, do the right thing and obey the law, respect those that enforce it and set an example for everyone else.

Quit your whining.
