Law enforcement honored

— — — —

Local law enforcement agencies honored fallen officers during a ceremony Thursday morning on the courthouse square. Through Thursday, 42 officers have died since Jan. 1, one of those an officer who died while doing training. Last year, 105 died. "I think this is the fewest number of Georgia officers we have read since our last (ceremony)," Moultrie Police Department Dave Underwood said. "I know there is an initiave in law enforcement -- Below 100. The goal is that by the end of the year we'll have less than 100 officers killed across the nation."

Brooks Sheldon of Moultrie examines a memorial stone honoring five area law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty in Colquitt County.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
