Throughout the week, these radio stations have reported on several shootings from area law enforcement agencies including the ambushed death of Alamo Police Officer Dylan, the Vidalia Police Department’s investigation of a local man found by police to have been shot numerous times and the police-involved shooting and death of a man who attempted to outrun the law in Evans County.  Now, one local businessman is fired up about the dangerous job of law officers and at the October meeting of the Vidalia City Council this week, he appeared before the officials to ask that they do more to honor the sacrifices the men and women who walk the thin blue line.

Vincent Drummer told Council Monday night that the streets of Vidalia are different from what they were when he was growing up. In his words, “When I was little, we used to walk to school. Now the streets of Vidalia are a war zone.”

Drummer went on to say that when he compares the risks the officers make compared to what they are being paid, “It doesn’t balance.”

“When they leave their homes, there is no certainty that they will be returning,” he said. “None of us have to worry about that.  I’m glad the hotel [Econo Inn recently purchased by the city] is going to be gone; I’m glad you bought more space for a parking lot. But we need to do better by our police officers. And so I ask you to take care of those who take care of us.”
