Again and again. Shawn Vestal’s bias against law enforcement is never-ending (“Use of force interpretations at odds,” Nov. 1).
I hope the public can see that his type of “verbal gasoline” is every bit as dangerous as that of a felon who may have wanted “suicide by cop.” (No officer ever wants that option.)
Worse yet, if Ellerman did have a gun, as he claimed, we could be reading about two dead officers, a dead canine, and a host of grieving families.
Yes, the officers’ language is disappointing, but until we stand in their adrenaline-filled boots, reacting in a split second to the potential of a horrendous outcome, we cannot judge.
Despite his endeavor to do so, nothing good ever comes from attempting to inflame the public towards law enforcement.
