People in many countries actually fear the police and law enforcement on sight. Here in America and Louisiana, the sight of a uniformed police or law enforcement officer is a welcome sight and means immediate help to an individual citizen.
When I encountered a road hazard-size pothole near the Essen and Perkins intersection, which immediately destroyed a tire, I had no sooner pulled into the Baton Rouge Clinic parking lot when two Baton Rouge police units pulled in and changed my tire. One extremely grateful silver-haired senior citizen wishes to thank Sgt. Tim Henderson, Cpl. Brent Arceneaux and all those like them to whom we look for help and not in fear.
