Larry Kaercher Your hditor !j Dean Llnton, the Associate Editor of Life Newspapers, and a good friend of mine, was honored recently by having one of his editorials published into the congressional record. Dean's remarks were printed in the May 14th Issue of the Suburban Life Newspapers and arp as poignant and timely today as they were then back in the month of May. Wlth.that in mind, the following is his pdltorial in Its entirety. It Is titled "Government Is Not Guiltless" by Dean Linton. "These past 10 days we have witnessed more disrespect for law and order by the various segments of our society than perhaps ever be/ore in the history of our country. V) "Law enforcement agencies across the'Tflation have been hard- pressed to cope with the disorders resulting from President Nixon's Cambodian decision and the tragic killing of four students at Kent State University in Ohio. "Dissent Is one thing. Wanton destruction of life and property Is another. "This disrespect for governmental authority, whether federal, state or local, has not just happened. It has been growing for some time and not only with the younger generation. Police have had to endure Indignities In recent years which would not be tolerated 25 years ago. What has led to this change In society? "Dozens of contributing factors can be given but many of our governmental agencies must share In some of the blame. Laws, both major and minor are broken dally with violators going unpunished. "Federal and state agencies get tangled in bureaucratic red tape and accomplish little until there is a hue and cry from the citizenry that can no longer be ignored. Such has been the case with America's environmental pollution problems for years. "Young America is leading the way to combat the air, water and land pollution that we have Ignored far too long. Military Installations and sanitary districts have been among our worst polluters. How can any government get tough with Industrial polluters when such conditions exist? Progress has been made, but not fast enough. "Last week a new federal policy position was announced which bans all hot water discharges Into Lake Michigan which exceed a one-degree Fahrenheit rise over the existing water temperature. Seven or eight months of hearings and administrative work Is expected before the policy can be adopted and enforced by Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana. Although slow in coming, this is a step In the right direction. "Laws go unenforced daily. Police cars pass parking violators and overweight trucks without action. Respected citizens who •don't want to get involved' fail to cooperate with police when complaints need to be signed. All too lenient Judges give a slap on the wrist when stronger punishment Is warranted. "All these breed disrespect for law and without law there can only be the chaos which has occurred in recent days. A time of reexamination is needed by all. If we learn from our mistakes, all Is not lost." LOTS OF FUN m^ -ai\ Phone FO 6-0298 For Reservations 7212 Washington Blvd. at Harlem, Forest Park
