You had plenty to say regarding our editorial concerns on
the possibility that tax deductions for charity could be capped or
"Giving is for giving, not so you will receive something in return. "
Samantha agreed, saying "I donate to whoever needs help, not
how much I will be able to deduct on my taxes."
Cassie countered with "This decision would be a decision of
the worst kind. Technically, this would
be the same as literally taking money away from these charities. It's sad, but true: people won't go above and
beyond with their donations if they can't write it off."
Our editorial on the new Louisville Police Department policy
authorizing police chases only when a violent felony is involved, not for
traffic violations or drug dealing, brought this response from Amany: "I don't
think it was wise to publicly announce this change because it just means
criminals will know they can flee without being chased. Jette
disagreed, saying "This is a good move by the LMPD Chief. Too many
innocent lives have been lost and this will prevent further lost lives."
