I agree it is a good sign and that Republicans are usually viewed as the tough on crime party, but we most remember that both sides have been involved in passing and upholding laws that make our lives difficult.
There have already been some angry complaints from some people who felt we were leaning in a political direction that they did not agree with. I know how easy it is for tempers to flare when it comes to that. I believe that is the fastest way to divide us when we so badly need to stay together. So I hope we can make an effort to remain as neutral as possible when it comes to politics, at least until things have calmed down.
