Letter – Well-intended insult

Well-intended insult

Re: Real-Life Supermen, Oct. 6-12

These types of articles perpetuate TV mocumentaries, which reflect little to nothing of the reality. It inflates the already enlarged sense of value and entitlements that many police already have, which only adds to the challenges of maintaining law and order with the focus on public accountability.  For those of us that took our police work seriously, while maintaining a balanced ego, this article, as well-meaning as it was intended, is really an insult to those who have given decades of service. There are no “Supermen” or “Superwomen”— just human beings doing a difficult job, who all choose, in their heart of hearts, to be held as accountable for their actions as those they arrest for similar bad choices.
