The Maine Shooting Shows Exactly Why Police Officers Are Still Needed Now More Than Ever

Law enforcement veteran Michael Letts praises the men and women working tirelessly to find the suspect, who is still on the loose.

What’s happening in Maine right now is absolutely frightening.

40-year old Robert Card, who is a certified firearms instructor and a member of the U.S. Army Reserves, allegedly shot and killed at least 18 people in a bowling alley and a restaurant, and injuring 16 others. At the present time, the suspect is still on the run – but he is being heavily pursued.

That said, Maine has countless officers, men and women alike, out to subdue the suspect, working tirelessly to keep people safe. In the meantime, schools have been closed and citizens have been advised to stay indoors, until the suspect is captured.

Though the situation is grim, the police are working tirelessly to keep everyone safe while attempting to apprehend the suspect. And that’s something Michael Letts wants everyone to keep in mind.

The President, Founder and CEO of InVest USA is here to talk to us about the tragedy, as well as the effort being put forward by police forces to keep people safe – at a time when many state governments are questioning their worth. His expertise will certainly be welcome in this matter.
