YOUR TURN: Most violent state in the nation

(WMC-TV) - Several high profile crimes have been in the news recently and that has sparked much discussion on the Action News 5 Facebook page.

Our "Your Turn" segment this week goes to Linda Disney who was reacting to the news that Tennessee had been named the most violent state in the nation. She thinks that should be a wake up call for the City of Memphis. In her words:

"My question is why is our local government as well as the media in denial? Simply "looking the other way" will not make the crime problem go away. This will just worsen. This is much like an addiction problem, when family members are in denial of the issue and are afraid to confront it. We definitely need an intervention for Memphis. Maybe the national attention will wake citizens up."

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