Fighting Back Part II
We get fan mail every so often from civilians. What follows is a typical such letter:
- Thank you for providing the missing other side of the story! Something hasn't smelled right about all this finger pointing at the Grand District captain, and unlike Mr. Abbate's behavior truly being inexcusable, my feeling as an average citizen has been that not all the facts are being reported. There are no cops in my family, but one of my most meaningful experiences as part of a civic leadership program was spending an entire shift with a cop on patrol; seems to me that sitting in a squad car when pulling over a van with tinted windows ought to be a prerequisite for any reporter who covers the police.
We'll leave out his name, home address, business address, work numbers, his HOME telephone number and CELL phone number that he was open and honest enough to provide. We do have some fans out there boys and girls - just because the media chooses to spotlight everyone with an axe to grind doesn't mean we don't have our supporters. Few and far between they may be, but they are supporters none the less.
