YOUR TURN: E. Cook's comments on Lester Street

WMC-TV General Manager Lee Meredith WMC-TV General Manager Lee Meredith

The Lester Street murders were a major concern for Memphians this week. This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to one of the many people who wrote about this tragedy.

E. Cook wrote in favor declaring a crime state of emergency and launching a community wide effort. In his words:

"We need help, leadership, and we need to take action against crime. I know Memphians want to take action against crime but no one seems to know how. With out some leadership from elected officials, how do we? The Crime state of emergency is a way that the entire city can step up and support. This city has such potential but is drowning in crime. I hope we can still be known for Beale Street and Fedex and all of the amazing things this city has to offer and not just crime."

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