MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Our recent "Crime: Perception vs Reality" editorial prompted this feedback:

"The mayor cannot make me believe that the streets of Montgomery are safer today than they were a year ago. You cannot make believe that the streets of Montgomery are safer today than they were 20 years ago. Once you become a victim of crime your perception changes."

Another viewer writes, "I think they manipulate the figures and classifications of crimes to give you the chamber of commerce version of things. There is a perception that we can't believe these figures. We never see the mayor out at scenes like Folmar was. He's outta touch."

And finally, "Shootings at local restaurants and malls are becoming everyday news but on a positive note at least we have speed traps set up with unmanned patrol cars to keep us safe. Maybe if the police department administrators spent more time focusing on patrolling our neighborhood streets and businesses and less time trying to generate revenue for the city through the use of cameras, the deterrent effect of a police presence might change criminal behavior."

As always - we encourage and appreciate your feedback.
