Stumbling country

To the Editor:

I just retired from a police department after 28 years.

I have a pension that provides no free insurance or any other outstanding benefits that have been the topic of reform the past few years.

The years have opened my eyes to our court systems in Cook and DuPage counties and our federal court system. Police discretion basically obliterated, leading to poor decisions, and then reviewed for further action by supervisors, causing morale to fall.

The same can be said about Obamacare and all the president’s minions scurrying about, repeatedly making the same mistakes with alleged new policies and spending to help America become great again. The truth is we are far from it.

You might not hear it, but American morale is falling with each poor decision made by our weak leaders such as Pat Quinn and Barack Obama. Until the arrogance leaves our state and federal governments, which include our representatives, we are a stumbling, on-the-brink-of-falling empire.

But we always have hope and change. Wait a minute. We already had that.
