Letter: Give Our Support To Police, DEA

Your recent article "Meth: From Mexico to the streets of Springfield" should serve as a wake-up call for our entire community.

The danger of pounds and pounds of methamphetamine pouring into our city is very real. Springfield is facing nothing less than an all-out attack by well-equipped, well-funded Mexican drug cartels pushing drugs all over town.

This assault on the good people of Springfield needs to be fought in the most effective way possible — by ramped-up law enforcement.

Our local officials made the right call by tabling an ordinance that would have made certain cold and allergy medicines available by prescription only. That would have only hurt law-abiding citizens and wouldn’t have stopped these Mexican drug lords.

Thankfully, it looks like our police force and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency are on the right track. Let’s give them the support they need.
