Reader urges love, respect for new police chief

Maebelle Lawrence

TARBORO — To the Editor:

I am a concerned citizen who has lived in Tarboro most of my life and I have never read such nonsense about the hiring of the new police chief, saying if he had any respect he would not have accepted the job.

Is there anybody in his or her right mind not accepting a job today?

The new chief is not the only person from out of town who has been hired by the Town of Tarboro in the last year and, I know there were people here in Edgecombe County who were qualified — but nobody said anything or wrote anything in the paper about hiring them.

So, have some respect, try not to hurt anyone’s feelings and show them some love and respect.
