Social media has its advantages and yet it can be a huge detriment at the same time.

 

That is the thoughts of Clinton Police Chief Ben Lowers who, in light of comments made by Clinton City Commissioner John Wise Monday at the Clinton City Council meeting, responded with his own thoughts on sites like Facebook and Twitter.

 

 

The Chief encourages anyone in the public to turn to someone who might have a solution to a problem or answer to a question before they jump on social media.

 

 

Commissioner Wise Monday night during the Clinton City Council meeting cited false claims made on social media regarding the new water meters being installed in Clinton homes. To that end, the Chief says people turning to social media to formulate their opinions based on unfounded claims is his biggest pet-peeve.
