YOUR TURN: MPD officer killed in the line of duty

YOUR TURN: MPD officer killed in the line of duty

(WMC-TV) - This week's "Your Turn" segment comes from the Action News 5 Facebook page where people are grieving for the children and family of Memphis Police Officer Martoiya Lang.

Lang was killed in the line of duty and many people are particularly concerned for her four children. We chose this comment from Margaret Hudson who wants citizens to get more involved. In her words:

"The first thing is to get our blinders off. Report wrongdoing instead of looking the other way. Make it way too uncomfortable for these criminals to live and continue their illegal activities in our neighborhoods. Condolences to the family of the fallen officer. A life lost in the line of duty is tragic. As Americans, we need to quit whining about what's wrong and take matters in to our own hands, and quit enabling the criminals by our apathy."

That's Margaret Hudson's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email or call 800-465-1210.
