YOUR TURN: Lafayette Theater Shooting

Air: Friday, July 24, 2015

This week’s “Your Turn” segment goes to Tracey Stephens Chidester. Chidester is one of hundreds of people who went to our Facebook page to post a comment in the wake of the theater shooting in Lafayette. She offered high praise for Lafayette’s first responders.

In her words: I’m very saddened for the loss of life, and thankful for everyone who escaped. I am so proud of our law enforcement. Here is a prime example of our police officers at their best. Six minutes response time, running towards the gunfire, to save people they don't know. Thank you to Lafayette Police, Lafayette first responders and Acadian Ambulance and whoever I missed. You all make this Louisiana girl proud of her state.

That’s Tracey Chidester’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to
