YOUR TURN: Viewer's take on MPD

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - This week's "Your Turn" segment comes from the Action News 5 Facebook page where people are commenting on the arrest of a Memphis police officer for sex trafficking. Police Director Toney Armstrong expressed frustration that the message to his officers should have been loud and clear by now -- that they are not above the law. His comments were the starting point for Karen Lemonds. In her words:

"In order for the message to come in loud and clear, one must respect the people they're supposed to be protecting and respect their job and what it stands for. Unfortunately, I don't think there are enough men and women in the MPD who respect anything. I am sorry for the respectful and responsible men and women of law enforcement for the fact that they too have to deal with fellow law enforcement officers who are tarnishing the badge."

That's Karen Lemonds' turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
