A few weeks ago, a gentleman came into our offices and complained about the metal detectors, guards and updated security at the Owen County Judicial Center.
“We don’t need all that here. This is Owen County. Things like that don’t happen around here,” he said.
In light of Friday’s senseless tragedy that took the lives of 20 children at an elementary school, those comments played over and over in my head this past weekend.
I wonder if the people of Newtown, Conn. thought the same thing?
