我见 我思 我闻


临危受命的休斯敦警长


参加了週三下午的休斯敦西南及国际区之市民大会,有幸和新上任的市警察局局长菲尼见到面, 他在大会上和市民们交换了肺腑之言。


这个全美第四大城市,经过了新冠病毒之洗劫,可以说是百处疮疾,今年预计至少有五百人以上被杀害。


位处於哈里斯群的能源大城,一年来更是涌进了许多合法或非法的居民,许多不满加州重税的工商企业纷纷往德州各大城市搬迁,眾多要到美国逃难的中南美洲难民,都已在休城紥根,因此,我们此地拉丁、亚裔、非裔居民已经成了多数人口,这种种族组合现象,彻底改变了生活和政治生态。


市民大会上情绪激动的市民对当地之治安败坏表达极大不满,亚裔是被抢劫最多的受害者,警力不足,反应时间过长,九月一日过后大家都可以带枪上街,这些问题都想听听警长的意见,

当了三十一年警察的警长,是生於斯长於斯的本地人,他在讲台上非常亲切而又从容地表示,保护市民就如保护家人一般,他将带领团队重新分配和充实在各区之警力,主要是请他的同事和社区打成一片,他同意九月一日后的携枪法令,将对警察构成巨大压力和威胁。


今天在美国各大小城市出任警长是件非常吃力不讨好的艰难工作,在全美各地反警察

暴力的大环境下,执法人员左右為难。


随着疫情带来的后遗症,对这位新任之警长是非常重大之挑战,他对於加强和社区之合作是首要任务,其主要目的是做到警民一家亲。





Welcome To The New Houston Police Chief Finner


There was a big crowd at the town hall meeting sponsored by City Councilwoman Tiffany Thomas yesterday when we all met the new Houston Police Chief Troy Finner.


Becoming the chief of police in the fourth largest city in the nation is not easy job. Houston’s murder rate is skyrocketing to over five hundred by end of this year.


Houston is located in Harris County and the population from Latinos, Africans and Asians has almost reached a majority because of the coronavirus pandemic, the economy was down until now. Many Californians are now moving to Texas, especially to Houston, Dallas and Austin.


In the town hall meeting, many residents complained about the crime in the southwest area, especially the criminals that are targeting Asian women. People also worry about the open carry gun issue that goes into effect after September 1 of this year.


Chief Finner answered all the questions and promised that his team will work more closely with the local community.


Chief Finner is a native Houstonian and has worked for the Houston Police Department for 31 years. His experience and community connections will make his working together with local groups much easier.   


Because of the nationwide anti-police violence atmosphere, it makes all the police chiefs’ jobs very difficult.


Houston is such a diverse city. In the different ethnic communities, the police need to treat all the citizens very equally. We all need to work together on the many issues facing our city. Otherwise, a growth in the crime rate will become a serious challenge for the new police chief.


We welcome our new Chief to serve our community. The Houston International District is ready to cooperate with our new leader.
