Eric Krieg is so right on with his commentary on the ludicrous "Stop Team." No other city nor our police departments are responsible for the crime in Gary; no other police department's officers should put their lives on the line to save a decayed city.

We did not create the decay! We ran from it. We don't want any part of it. We detour around it.

So if Gary has problems, drugs or whatever else, let them fix their own city.

Do you think the Lake County Solid Waste Management District should pay its new director less than its former director?
