Don’t be quick to judge


Reading last Saturday’s letters prior to the editorial with the photo of Judge Vance Peterson, I initially expected that it was of a panhandler. Sadly, many veterans aren’t as blessed as the judge and end up on the streets, struggling for every dollar.

I warn that it is far too easy to dismiss a hero as a bum with prejudicial rushes to judgment. Next time you are compelled to quickly dismiss a homeless soul, check yourself, you may be shamefully off the mark. We forget how poorly so many vets are treated once they get back home.
