Letter: Offensive cartoons on police

Janet Ketelsleger

I just wanted to let you know that I have taken total offense to the political cartoons you ran April 13 and 14 depicting the “bad cop.” Yes, it happened, and yes the public has a right to know, but it is actions like yours that keep fueling the hatred between people in this country.

Yes, it was tragic but it is not the norm as much as the media tries to make it seem. It is a slap in the face to the hundreds of good, upright police, state patrol and sheriff’s department men and women who daily put their life on the line for our safety.

I, for one, admire their courage and am grateful that they have chosen to make their life’s work the safety of our communities. They deserve to be in our prayers, not our criticisms, every day.
