To the Editor,
The new tinted window enforcement on cars in the city of Lumberton is a bad deal. This law is punishing the innocent young people as well as adults who are going to and from work or school.
You have people who drive to Lumberton to pay bills, to shop, or out-of-town visitors.
If this is a source of revenue then you are robbing Peter to pay Paul. Your Police Department needs to be stopping the drug dealers on the corner, those breaking into homes and those stealing copper etc.
No law enforcement officer is in danger because of tinted windows. More than 60 percent of the cars in Robeson County have some sort of tinted window, even some of our own law enforcement.
Your elected officials in the city of Lumberton need to scrap this law, and address the real issue in your city, drugs and crimes like all other towns and community.
I have no problem with DWI checkpoint or seat-belt checkpoints. I’m not accusing anyone of racial profiling.
