Enough of the Crime Fighting Band Aids in Roswell

RDR cartoonist Keith Bell makes fun of the symbolic nature of Mayor Kintigh’s war on crime. His cartoon depicts the Rise Up Roswell Assembly at Chaves County Courthouse as a band aid covering up what appears to be a blood stain. Also a cheer leader is carrying a handbag labeled Rise Up Roswell, AND I don’t think the resemblance to chamber of commerce executive director Dorrie Faubus McCarty is coincidental. Dorrie does bring around 30 years of business acumen to the chamber.

Public awareness regarding violent crime has to have some preventative value, but most citizens likely agree more has to be done than these type of actions that have no teeth. In the same issue of the newspaper, our Mayor proposed implementing a grand jury which he claims will compel reluctant witnesses to testify against dangerous criminals.

The Mayor also informs us that Roswell Police Department officers spend an inordinate amount of time in court providing testimony against the repeat offender thugs in Roswell. He believes a grand jury system will get the cops out of the court room an on to the street defending the community against the recent spikes in crime.

  1. Chamber director Dorrie Faubus-McCarty gave way to Candace Lewis cheering for herself as cartoon depicts. She reminded readers that she won citizen of the year and also was awarded service to mankind accolades multiple times. Apparently cheerleader reference in cartoon did not hurt her feelings enough.
