Editor: I'm not a liberal but get along fine with them, especially regarding opposing New Orleans street crime. This detente is particularly timely given progressive angst over President Donald Trump. My unity with folks whose ideology differs from mine is based upon creating safety without litmus tests. We agree that women being beaten in the streets by violent youth is unacceptable- period! When my volunteer street patrol began offering walking escorts at an area anchor institution, my supporters are women ( and men ) whose political party differs from mine. When threats are persistent enough, and solutions sincere enough, citizens seamlessly unite to produce relief. In a constitutional republic priding itself on participatory democracy, my non-partisan creation of safety beside liberals speaks volumes about how Americans can work together during this otherwise polarized time period. Promoting creating safety by heeding very real safety concerns is a traditional, dare I say " conservative " thing to do. No one is forced to change political beliefs while we change tactics to offset looming street crime. Safety, not ideology, is the top priority! - Nadra Enzi aka Cap Black, creator of the Cap Black Street Patrol, whose volunteers offer walking escorts and victim advocacy.
