Letter to the editor: Proud of police dept.

To the editor: As I hear about national cop abuse of power the more proud I am our Police Department. Over the 4th of July weekend they and the Sheriff's Office handled 78 calls, most involving excessive drinking. Angry drunks are so unpredictable and prone to excessive violence that I cannot imagine stepping in to stop it. They didn't choke hold anyone, shoot a minority, use excessive force or haul people in on trumped up charges.
