A Better Mid-South: Director Mike Rallings

A Better Mid-South: Director Mike Rallings

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

Interim Memphis Police Director Mike Rallings has dropped the interim and we now have a permanent director to lead our police department.

I believe this was the right decision at the right time for our city.

There's no doubt Director Rallings proved his leadership abilities on that hot night on the Interstate 40 bridge when he got hundreds of protesters off the bridge without anyone getting hurt or worse.

Now, I realize there will be naysayers, but before you nay say--how about you do something to help?

Director Rallings needs all of us now more than ever.

No one person can cure all of our community ills--it's going to take all of us.

If you live and work in Memphis, what can you do to take back our community?

I want to hear from you! Email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or post on my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South.

Director Rallings, with our help, has and will make this A Better Mid-South.
