What happened in Billings on June 19 is horrible. Unfortunately, we lost our friend Michael Sample, who we will never get back. What happened June 19 is a clear indication that Billings is becoming a city with big-city problems.

We cannot sit around and be vulnerable in situations in which we can and will take action. We can't sit around and just talk about being scared. We need to stand and speak out loud as to why we love our city and how we are going to regain control. I know this is what Sample would do if he lost a friend in a crime like this. Not in our town. Take back our town.
