South Florida Shares Thoughts About What They Want President to Say at Town Hall
President Barack Obama is scheduled to lead a town hall conversation on policing and race relations Thursday evening for a nation universally hurting, but from individual perceptions.
Expectations from South Floridians reflect the varying perspectives.
“I would like to see the federal, state and local governments prioritize public safety once again,” said John Rivera, president of the Miami-Dade Police Benevolent Association.
He, like other law enforcers, hope the president will fund programs that build bridges between the police and the communities they serve.
