Say What?! Your safety concerns with terrorism
The terror attacks in Brussels last week have a lot of you questioning about your own safety within the United States this week. How safe do you feel in your day to day life here in the Panhandle?
"I feel pretty safe, I still think that we have to be aware of our surroundings and take into consideration what has happened around the world," said Ana Ibarra.
"I would feel more unsafe going overseas or to a bigger population like New York or L.A. right now," said Tatum Burdis.
"I do feel safe in Amarillo. I do feel like there would be some concerns traveling overseas," said Kayla Leonard.
Even though many of you feel secure here, what would you do to help fight terrorism?
"Taking those examples into consideration to maybe, take ideas or prevent things based on what has happened before," said Ibarra.
"Rather than being reactive, but to be proactive I think is the answer. Again, finding that is a good question," said Burdis.
"There should be higher security in higher traffic areas," said Leonard.
As the election approaches, what qualities are most important to you in the next president when it comes to tackling terrorism?
"Give us a sense of safety everywhere, if we're in an airport, if we want to go on vacation, you know, anywhere," said Ibarra.
"I think they need to find that happy medium, to give good guys protection, and to give bad guys no protection," said Burids.
"I definitely think that our next president should take terrorism more seriously because of the acts that are happening even though they're not happening in the U.S. just so we could bring our soldiers back over," said Leonard.
