YOUR TURN: Bystander killed by stray bullet

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - On the Action News 5 Facebook page, people are reacting to the news of a 62-year-old Memphis woman who was shot and killed in her driveway in broad daylight as she unloaded her groceries.

For this week's "Your Turn" segment, we chose commentary from Christine Theriac.

In her words:

"We need more officers on the streets. Police presence may deter some of this crime. Mayor A C Wharton, please give officers the pay and benefits that are rightfully theirs in this crime-filled city. We would rather have public safety than a new parking garage, riverboat, Bass Pro, etc. Quit building stuff and causing more debt and put the money where it's needed. Every day, I turn on the news, someone else has been shot. You have a bodyguard to protect you. What about our safety?"

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