To the editor:
I think it’s disgusting that the Journal-World felt the need to plaster headlines on the front page about one of our police officers fixing tickets. In the first place, that could have and should have been handled within the police department, not made public. The officer should have received a reprimand and definitely not lost his job after 21 years of service. This officer has done a lot of good for our community and, like all officers, he has put his life on the line every day.
He didn’t do anything worse than what the courts do. Aren’t they accepting a bribe when we pay double the fine on moving violations so they won’t report it to our insurance company?
If you reported all the “illegal” things going on in our city government on the front page, you wouldn’t have room for any other news.
