Letter: Officers’ ‘ultimate’ decision

Contrary to many of our letters to your paper, we would like to commend the Post Independent for its Opinion article “Our View” (02/16/15), regarding the shooting of Mr. Fritze.

Obviously, no death is a good thing and we add our sincere condolences to his loved ones.

What was expressed in the piece we really found beneficial and encouraging was your seemingly sincere empathy for the officer/officers who were forced to make the “ultimate” decision. Our media today seem to totally disregard and ignore the ramifications this decision has on the officers and their families.
