Letter: Cartoon misrepresented Missouri events

If the cartoon of Aug. 20 represents your current assessment of law enforcement in America, what cartoon are you going to run when the officer has been found justified in defending himself? Six foot four and 290 pounds is NOT a child.

Your reporting of the progressive media’s representation of the events in Missouri is so obviously obfuscated that it contains no credibility regarding the actual events. I truly hope you never need a police officer. If you do, is he/she allowed to have a gun?
