Local opinion: Businessman calls for Conover to resign

As a local retail business owner and chair of the Coalition Against Retail Theft (CART) for the Tucson Metro Chamber, I am frustrated to see companies of all sizes in our community being subjected to lawlessness because our county prosecutor is failing to do her job. When we had a security incident at my business which resulted in our employees and some customers afraid for their lives paired with over $30,000 worth of damages, I was sad to see how demoralized the arresting police officers were because they knew that the perpetrator who had a rap sheet with a history of violence would be out within a few days because of Pima County Attorney Laura Conover’s “catch & release” policies.
